Our team has recently started using Kobo Toolbox. Some staff have android devices and have installed Kobo Collect, some have iphones so use the online survey. Initially everyone used the ‘master account’ login details (the account used to build the survey form). Then we set up a new ‘data collector’ account and ‘shared’ the project giving the new data collector account add submissions and view submissions access. It took us a while to get it right (our shared forms were not showing up in app ‘get bank form’) , but we eventually found this post Redirecting to Google Groups (key text pasted below, thanks Tino) which explained that when sharing forms with others users, in the kobo collect app, in general settings, the URL should be https://kc.kobotoolbox.org (without user name). Then in the general settings username and password, we enter the details for the new ‘data collector’ account.
We didn’t have any problems before we started using the ‘data collector’ account, but there was always a small risk that a keen user with the login & password details for the master account could access the survey online, change details, modify survey records etc. Set up of a new data collector account gave us an added layer of security.

Is it possible that 2 or more people work in the same project using the same login credentials? Or if there is any other best way for working together in a same project?
