Uploading xls data back to the KoBoToolbox server

Hi Kai_Lam,

In one of your post in 2019 you mentioned that IT’S IMPOSSIBLE to upload back the data downloaded as excel to the kobo account. I wonder if that feature had already been added.

Hoping to get your response soon.


Hi @ppmjr12020,

The feature you are requesting is not present in KoBoToolbox at the moment. However a new feature request for the same has already been lodged (maybe you could vote for the same):

As a temporary workaround, you could do the same using python code as discussed in the earlier post:

Have a great day!

Do we have any news for a feature to upload back cleaned data to kobocollect?

No, not yet!

Thanks for the quick response Kai_Lam
