Importing Data using XLS

Hello Team.

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:

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:

Thank you for your prompt response @Kal_Lam. However, I’m not familiar with Python and the second option shows how to migrate from one server to another using ODK Briefcase.

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.

Thank you @Kal_Lam
