Error message on deployment

I got this message when trying to deploy my form: “Your form could not be deployed because it contains errors: No JSON object could not be decoded”

@solujimi, it means you have some errors in your file. Take some time to go through each line for errors or you could share your file so we can assist you debug.

Hi @solujimi,

Welcome back to the community! You could also validate your xlsform with to identify the syntax errors within the form. GOOD DAY!

Hi, i got the xls file into but not clear about what to do. I’m not so familiar with kobotoolbox. I created the form following a tutorial from Youtube. The one the tutor did was deployed but mine wasn’t. Even after correcting the errors, how do i get it back into kobotoolbox for deployment?
