Custom Form Auto Upload Help

Hello,

My team and I have a form which is can be opened on ODK Collect and when you click with a bluetooth mouse or your finger you can tap 1 = yes, or 2 = no. Very basic.

Our problem is we don't know how to get the file to get uploaded to the ODK server we created. We tested other forms and were able to have everything fully functioning. But with this new form, we don't understand it. Is there something we need to change or add to allow us to send those forms to the server without click the "Save and Exit" button? Because our form doesn't switch slides, you can just click on the screen to give your input.

We were hoping we could add a couple lines that would allow us to just submit the saved form. We are working with another teams code, which listens for clicks on the screen and fills out an String xmlTest, then saves that in the correct spot. But even with auto-upload checked in the settings, our files are still not being sent.

What do we need to do to make this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated. We have gone in many circles trying to figure it out and we have not come up with anything. We are full time students and don't really know Android programming, but we're learning.

Again, any help figuring out how to auto-upload a file that doesn't get to the "save and exit" screen? Or do we have to get to that screen for the whole thing to work? Basically we need to know how to point ODK to auto send the new files that are being created and saved by the other teams code.

I hope this makes sense.

We appreciate any help.

Thank you.

Beyond the touch to launch the form from a shortcut, it will require at
least two gestures to do this:

(1) touch yes/no and use the Select one with auto-advance appearance on
this prompt (
http://opendatakit.org/help/form-design/examples/#select_prompts ) to
advance to the final screen
(2) click to Finalize the form (save as complete).

This assumes you have configured the device to auto-send submissions when
it detects a connection to the internet.
