I noticed on Kobo there is an option to Download all data that i have collected on my form, but i dont see how to do the opposite. I have an excel file containing all the data information for a lot of people but i dont see an option to upload my file to Kobo so i dont have to input all the information 1 by 1 on a form.
How can i import or upload the data i already have on excel to Kobo?
The question raised by @eandrade is a recurring one and I am always surprised that no one refers to the possibility of uploading data in CSV format using the V1 api : https://kc.humanitarianresponse.info/api/v1/forms/xxxxxxx/csv_import
This “csv_import” feature is limited (it doesn’t work with repeated groups nor with media type data, and it can easily lead to duplicates if the process is not well controlled) … but it is also very easy to implement and can be useful, especially when you want to transfer the ownership of a survey to another user (by uploading selected data in an empty clone of the initial survey).
A nice implementation was proposed here years ago for Google Sheets (still working) : https://github.com/pcurrier/KoboToolbox-GoogleApps-Scripts
