Development Coverage

I have advised to upload my OWA to https://modules-refapp.openmrs.org/openmrs/ for the mentor’s view. So I need to finalize the Module for the mentor’s view. I want to complete this following parts immediately at that time,

  • Implemented OpenMRS Header for OWA
  • Implemented OpenMRS Breadcrumbs for OWA
  • Modified buttons with OpenMRS UI Icons
  • Implemented Check Updates for Module feature.

Finally, I have uploaded my OWA to online reference application and received some feedback from my mentor. He advised me to start work on Encounters after some alterations on existing OWA module. So Currently I am working on existing OWA to complete the pending works.
