First, of course, you need to generate an XML file from your form
definition, either by downloading it from ODK Build or using XLSForm to
convert your XLSX file into an XML representation of that form logic.

Next, there are two approaches:

(1) set up an ODK Aggregate server and upload the form to that server (via
the Form Management / Forms List sub-tab's Add New Form button or by using
the Form Uploader tool (available on our downloads page)). Then open ODK
Collect, go to the menu (3 vertical dot icon), click General Settings, and
configure the server settings to point to your server. If you have
restricted access to the server, you would also need to configure a
username and password. By default, the server configuration allows
Anonymous access. Once you have configured the server, choose "Get Blank
Form" which will access the server, get the list of available forms, and
display them for you to select and download. Once you have downloaded the
forms, you can then go to the "Fill Blank Form" screen and open them and
begin filling them in.

or

(2) install the 'adb' tool from Google's Android SDK, connect your device
to your computer using a USB cable, and complete any additional
configuration to be able to see the device when you type "adb devices" --
see the Google documentation for instructions. Then open a cmd (Windows)
or Terminal (MacOSX) window and use that to push an XML form to your
device. Assuming you are in the directory containing the "yourform.xml"
file (e.g., dir (windows) or ls (MacOSX) displays that file), then the
general form would be

adb push yourform.xml /sdcard/odk/forms/

This will copy the file on your computer (yourform.xml) to your device.
Then open ODK Collect and the Fill Blank Forms page should refresh and
display that form.
