I’m only a user, but it is possible to post submissions using the API. I don’t have time currently to properly describe how, but it definitely works. There are also ways to do batch imports. One is using the API, and to push a CSV files with your data. The data has to be quite simple, it cannot contain groups and repeating questions IIRC.
Another way that should work is to use https://opendatakit.org/use/briefcase/. Create one submission on an Android device, check out the created files and folders and then create additional XML files for your submissions and push them (you will probably also have to edit the sqlite database that ODK/KoBoCollect creates). I haven’t tried that approach myself though.
I would say the CSV import functionality of the API is easier if your data is not complex.
Sorry I don’t have the time to describe it better, but with that as pointers hopefully you can work something out.

Laurence this is a great question. I wish I knew how to do this as well.
I would recommend the API, but it looks like it only allows for reading of data, not adding or editing.
To the creators Is there any chance the API in the future will allow for editing or adding?
