Have the same URL on ODK Collect than in KOBO Collect

Hey everyone, :slight_smile:

When you deploy a survey and want to submit datas, depending on the tools you are using you are going to have different URL :

As example, for a same form:
On ODK Collect you need to fill this link:

https://kc.humanitarianresponse.info

Nevertheless to fill my form on KOBO the link is : “https://kobo.humanitarianresponse.info/#
So you have “KOBO.” instead of “KC.”

For Enketo it’s : “https://ee.humanitarianresponse.info/

It would make sense that the URL be the same between what you see in the browser and what you have to enter in the mobile. This could avoid some errors and will facilate the use for users.

I am using KOBO Humanitarian response & ODK Collect v1.22.4.

Thank you to take this into account,
Chloé

Hi @chloelaborde,

Thank you for flagging and providing this wonderful information to the entire community member.

However, would like to let you know that using https://kc.humanitarianresponse.info/user_name in case of humanitarian server and https://kc.kobotoolbox.org/user_name in case of non-humanitarian server for both KoBoCollect as well as ODK Collect should also works smoothly.

Hey, :slight_smile:

Thank you for your reply but it’s not the case…

If I use the url "https://kobo.humanitarianresponse.info/user_name” instead of “https://kc.humanitarianresponse.info/user_name” on ODK Collect I will not be able to acess my form.
I will have the following error message:
“Form listing failed. getXmlDocument failed while accessing https://kobo.humanitarianresponse.info/user_name/firmList with status code : 404”

Moreover, if I use “https://kc.humanitarianresponse.info/user_name)” on my computer instead of "https://kobo.humanitarianresponse.info/user_name” it will open the old interface and the following message will appear:
“We no longer recommend deploying projects directly from the legacy interface. You will NOT have access to all our new shiny tools and features, and deploying a project with the legacy interface is highly discouraged at this point. Please use the new interface to deploy your projects. The legacy interface and this deployment feature will be removed shortly.”

This old interface (also called the legacy one) can be use by advanced user because you still have some settings but it is not practical at all.
