Hi, I’m interested in this upgrade admin dashboard. So I begin to gather and discover the basic requirements for this project and going to keep this thread updated

Project wiki page - GSoC 2021:Modernizing Admin Dashboard


Overview and Problem Specification

Currently, there is an old user interface in openMRS and there are some issues with it. Those below mentioned issues are the current issues, I have found the finding of my background research

  • Fonts type and topic arrangement are ambiguous and uncomfortable to view
  • white spaces are too much
    • The gap between the main menues
  • faulty alignment and grouping
    • topics and subtopics are not properly align and grouping


In my opinion, the openMRS admin panel will be easier to use by enhancing their user experience. To increase it, I think it can be done by troubleshooting the above

Next steps

I will try to find more requirements for improve admin dashboard
