What is a DHIS 2 app?
Where can I find apps?
You can find apps in the DHIS 2 app store. In the app store we have collected apps which are general, re-usable and available for anyone. Apps can be made in order to solve specific problems and use-cases. In some scenarios it makes sense to create a specific solution for your system. In other situations it is feasible to make an app general, in the sense that it can be used potentially by anyone for any instance of DHIS 2.

How can I install apps in DHIS 2?
Before installing apps for the first time you will have to set some configuration from Apps > App Management > Settings. Simply click "Set to default" and then "Save".
Next step is to upload your app under Apps > App Management > Installed Apps. Start by clicking "Choose File". If all goes well you will see a message saying "App installed successfully". A common mistake is not to place the manifest.webapp file at the root of the ZIP app archive. After the web page is reloaded you should see your app in the Apps menu.
