Mass Upload forms to aggregate server

I have lots of ODK forms each having some media attachment of csv file or
image files. I want to upload a single zip file containing all of those xml
files along with their corresponding media files. Is there any suitable way
to do that? The ODK FormUploader v1.4.6 Production can upload one single
file at a time which is time consuming to complete the full task. Also it
can’t attach the media files.

Ehsan,

I haven't tried this, but it's worth a try with a form or two. Put the
forms in Collect with adb and make sure they show up in the app. Then
pull them to your computer with Briefcase, then push them to the
server with Briefcase. If that works, you can probably skip the
Collect step and manually place the forms into the Briefcase storage
directory.

Try with a form with no media and a form with media and let us know if
either works.

Yaw,

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I have pulled some forms using briefcase,
added few more manually in the briefcase storage location and push them to
aggregate server. It works fine. However, I am not aware of how to Put the
forms in Collect with adb (not sure what 'adb' is). Can you please suggest
any resource to know about it?

Best,
Ehsan

Ehsan,

If putting the forms in the Briefcase folder works, then don't worry about adb.

If you just want to learn more...adb is a command line tool that lets
you communicate with Android devices. It's a developer tool that comes
as part of Android's software development kit. See
https://developer.android.com/tools/help/adb.html

I don't understand what your concerns are with FormUploader

If your xml file is named 'myform.xml', then create a folder called
'myform-media' in the same directory as 'myform.xml' and place all your
associated media files in that folder.

Then use FormUploader to upload the form. It will upload the form and all
the media files it finds in any formfilename-media folder that it finds.

Thanks for your response. My main concern with FormUploader is that it
cannot upload multiple forms at a time, have to select one by one and
continue till all forms get uploaded.
Regarding media files: sorry, I was wrong; I have figured out the exact
directory setup later.
