About this app

KoboCollect is based on the open source ODK Collect app and is used for primary data collection in humanitarian emergencies and other challenging field environments. With this app you enter data from interviews or other primary data -- online or offline. There are no limits on the number of forms, questions, or submissions (including photos and other media) that can be saved on your device.

This app requires a free KoboToolbox account: Before you can collect data create a free account with your computer on www.kobotoolbox.org and create a blank form for data entry. Once your form is created and active, configure this app to point to your account, following the instructions in our tool.

To visualize, analyze, share, and download your collected data just go back to your KoboToolbox account online. Advanced users can also install their own KoboToolbox instance on a local computer or server.

KoboToolbox consists of several software tools to help you with your digital data collection. Together, these tools are used by thousands of humanitarians, development professionals, researchers, and private companies to design and implement primary data collection projects around the world. KoboCollect is based on ODK Collect, and is used by professionals wherever reliable and professional field data collection is needed.

The offline Kobo Collection tool is helpful for areas with internet related issues. However, it's default storage directory could experience issues on devices that have a low memory and that might constantly require clearing files from the internal memory. Real high likelihood of losing collected data.

The concept behind the app is good but the app is very bad. It makes work very difficult and even after filling some forms , I get errors messages which I know nothing about concerning the data I've inputted meanwhile I'm answering exactly how I'm to answer. Please I'd be glad if you humbly work on the app. Thank you

Please note that the errors you are seeing are not from the app but rather form logic that was implemented by those who were developing the form you are using. If you are still experiencing issues, please consider posting in our community forum on https://community.kobotoolbox.org where our community of users will gladly help you

After I spend hours collecting data and taking photos for a report, I hit the Submit button, it gives me an unhelpful error message about bad XML, doesn't submit the report but everything I've collected including the photos are gone. Totally gone.
