The goal of the feature (set) is to be able to deploy Kobo across an enterprise organization and to allow organizations to share data. We want to create a number of sets of questions or forms, that we can share with other Kobo users (people in our organization or partner organizations) so they can collect similar data and manage it within their account. In addition we want them to be able to allow some of their data sets to be shared with us centrally.
User stories for how and when this would be used by someone on your team
The conservation community wants to collect standardized governance data for protected areas globally. Sue creates a set of questions and a form. She makes the form or questions public, so that others can deploy forms with the same questions. Of the 40 Kobo accounts that use the form, 30 decide that want to give Sue access to the data collected within the form. Sue has a simple method of aggregating the data from the 30 accounts that share data.
Can you sketch out graphically how you think this should look/work in practice?
We are open to this being a partially manual process. One option would be:
i) Ability to create and name a library of shared question sets
ii) Ability to make results from a form available to another Kobo user using some kind of token
How useful would this feature be to other users or organizations?
We need this as part of a collaboration with 5 of the world’s leading conservation organizations. We hear that many NGOs love Kobo but struggle to adopt it based on limited enterprise features.
What can you contribute to making this feature a reality?
We have some resources we could bring to the table here.
