Instance.status

Hi all,

I've noticed the following sentence in the model definition for
`Instance` (https://github.com/kobotoolbox/kobocat/blob/master/onadata/apps/logger/models/instance.py#L119):

    # ODK keeps track of three statuses for an instance:
    # incomplete, submitted, complete
    # we add a fourth status: submitted_via_web

Looking through the source code, it seems to me that these statuses
are never actually used for anything. If that's the case, would it be
safe to use `Instance.status` for creating something like a workflow
for data exports? Or would we risk to break compatibility in some way
by using something other than `incomplete`, `submitted`, `complete`
(and `submitted_via_web`)?
Are there maybe any plans to add something like a filter for forms
with a specific status to the `Advanced Exports` functionality?

Thanks and greetings,

Jesaja Everling

Hi Jesaja,

The status is not shown in the regular CSV and XLS outputs, but it’s saved in the database and accessible via the /data/ API. To see the status visit https://[servurl]/api/v1/data/[formpk]

Adding this column to data exports is possible and would make most sense in the new exports being rolled out currently.

Best,

Tino
