Modifying the APK file to pre-fill server address


My field officers are really struggling with setting the server name in the SERVER URL section in settings (different spellings, http instead of https, etc.). Is there a way for me to open the APK file into some editor/Android development environment, pre-fill the server name, compile the APK back, and distribute it among my field staff? I saw someone doing it on some old thread, but don't remember the method. Please help.


You need to:

  1. Fork our original repository:
  2. Implement required changes (using Android Studio)
  3. Build an APK file (also using Android Studio)

@Saad an alternative to try is to provide a settings file for your field officers by configuring one device and sharing the config via a QR code. has documentation on this.
