My team had been using Scan IT for data collection before we discovered KoboToolbox.
The data collected so far has been exported as xls. Is there a way we can import the file (data) into Kobotoolbox such that we can data can become part of the new data being collected through Kobo Collect?
@ife, you should be able to upload your data to the KoboToolbox server using this python script:
@brighton_zocs, you can try using this (no longer supported) script:
You can also try following these yet-to-be-published, draft tutorials on doing this through the API:
If you are not familiar with python, you could also upload your survey project with the ODK Briefcase as outlined in the post discussed previously:
You could migrate your KoboToolbox project from one server (from humanitarian to non-humanitarian or vice versa) to the other using ODK Briefcase as follows:
In this post, I will illustrate on how to migrate a survey project from a non-humanitarian server (Kobo server) to a humanitarian server (OCHA server).
At the moment, my non-humanitarian server (Kobo server) has a project with 5 submissions.
I would wish to migrate this project to the humanitarian server (OC…
Thank you for your prompt response

The data I have was collected via google server. Will the ODK Briefcase solution still work with google server?
@ife, if it’s comparable with ODK then it should solve your issue.
