Updating Media file for Enketo forms

As I learned from REST request to retrieve a value from an external source, it is possible but ugly to update a csv media file for ODK Collect without user intervention.

But how would I do this for an Enketo file in the browser? There are a few cases where I need these because want to use a Matrix question type.,

Hi @dmenne,

Try having a look at our support article Adding media to your form. It should solve your issue.

Have a great day!

No, that’s the beginner’s version. It does not tell me how to solve the problem in

for an Enketo form. What ‘directory’ do I have to point the synchronization to?

To be honest with you, I don’t know exactly where Enketo stores its media files. I’m confident, however, that it’s not in a directory on the file system the way it is with Collect. It’s going to be somewhere within the browser’s storage (perhaps also within a SQLite database, although your device may need to be rooted for you to access this directly). You might post at https://groups.google.com/g/enketo-users if you don’t get a better response here.
