We use ODK a lot for data collection for an array of projects and in many countries. We typically use Ona.io as our server. Though Ona has a dashboard and now integrates with Google Sheets, I am interested in hearing if anyone has recommendations about a dashboard platform/software for ODK data. Specifically, something that displays incoming data - some way to link data to the dashboard. I know Ona now has integration with Tableau. Would this be recommended? I am looking for a dashboard similar to DHIS2 in look and feel and sharing capabilities.
Perhaps DHIS2 is what would be recommended...? If so, is there an easy way to link ODK data to DHIS2? Or Ona to DHIS2? Or is that something for which a developer should be contracted? I have experience with XLS scripting and tech and data collection, etc., but I am not a developer/computer programmer/coder and don't have familiarity with things like APIs.
Since ODK is open source; therefore, I believe you can customize it in your own way to display your data on DHIS2 or Tableau. However, following this guideline you may export your data from ODK and display on DHIS2.
we need to work in this topic because every application has real time dashboard when any person to entry in
application show in dashboard.Monitoring staff easily check enumerator work.And on the spot call if enumerator doing wrong work.
1-we need to video how to make real time dashboard ?
2-how to check data mentoring staff easily ?
I can really recommend PowerBI from Microsoft. It is free and easy. You can also link it to the Database directly instead of using briefcase and you can publish the content to websites as well (automatic updated like in Google Fusion Tables)
hi, I have developed a robust dashboard and reporting solution that one can use by connecting it directly with the ODK data. Please let me know if you would like to see a demo of it. I have not made it commercial yet as I have developed it as during my leisure time. You could use it to pull the data from ODK server and design report and dashboard.
I've played with using Google Data Studio as a linked dashboard to allow for real time updates. Its worked well for the basics. It is limited in some regards associated with indicators which need to be estimated post-collection, and for data points within repeat groups (which don't publish to google sheets).
Publishing from Aggregate directly to Google Sheets is straight forward. Then linking the Sheet to Google Data Studio is also straight forward. Potential problems arise when computing values within google sheets, and using data from repeat groups.
I'm happy to discuss more if others are interested. I've had it on my list to check out PowerBI and would gladly like to hear more from the community on their experience linking PowerBI to Aggregate.
Dear Kanagu, I am also very very interested of using your robust dashbord and reporting tool. I am running a project with Kobotoolbox (on the humanitarianresponse.info server instance). They have a simple reporting tool but it's not working now.
I'd like to have a look at your solution and hopefully it will help me.
