Using ODK collect with kobotoolbox.org

I have a number of projects running on ODK aggregate. However, for future surveys I would like to switch over to kobotoolbox.org. I design all forms in XLSform but kobotoolbox appears to have in built data viz capabilities (which I’d like to asses).

As my users are quite used to ODK collect when recording data I’d like to give them the option of staying with what they know. I’ve read the post about using ODK collect on the Github wiki here:

https://github.com/kobotoolbox/kobocat/wiki/Configuring-ODK-collect-with-your-KoBoToolbox-account

but it looks like it may be quite outdated. It isn’t working for me and so I’d like to know if this is still possible r if I’m missing an integral step.

Thanks,

Oliver

Hi Oliver,

I do not use Kobotoolbox, but you should be able to submit data to kobotoolbox using ODK Collect.

Make sure your server, user name and password settings are correct in ODK Collect.

Note: You can only install ODK Collect or KoboCollect on your Android device. You can not have both apps installed on the same device, they share a similar folder structure.

Best and Regards

Ronald
