Hello everyone! I am a part of UW Impact++ team, and we are trying to make something useful for the ODK community!
We noticed that there are a lot of insights that can be discovered from the audit log files associated with the submissions (such as how long each question takes and so on). And we are trying to build something that can take in the csv file that contains the audit log, and produce something that will be useful for you.
Exactly how this gets built depends on all of your voices and inputs!! For example, we still haven't decided on the exact format of the software we want to build. Since the audit file contains very sensitive information, we want to make a local app running on the desktop, rather than creating a web app.
There are a couple of options here:
- build a plain simple python script -- this assumes people are comfortable with command lines.
- build a JAR with some frontend such as buttons and interface for uploading the file
Also, how complicated this software ends up being and what analytics it comes with also depends on our ODK community! Currently we have a python script that takes in the audit.csv file and outputs the average time of filling out each question by the data collectors.
Please let us know any ideas you have with respect to the scope and the format of this software. We are trying to make sure what we build would actually be useful to our community. Thanks a ton!
