Our next call will be May 30th, from 16-17 GMT+01 (see in your time zone).

Thanks Shobit! I believe we were planning to revisit the repeat group stuff again, and everyone was going to read through my proposal and also my suggestion regarding the "new repeat?" modal.

I put a few things in the agenda at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KdUeiryViiPyiG8ajDC_snxSzDBBb-kwNauHvD_chfA/edit including 20 minutes to hash out remaining questions for repeat navigation @tomsmyth.

I'd also like to spend a couple of minutes talking about good next issues to prioritize. I have a couple I want to bring up and it would be good if everyone gave thought to what we should tackle next.

@Shobhit_Agarwal of course please modify the agenda as you see fit! Looking forward to seeing what welcome/ice breaker question you come up with! :blush:

I'd be interested in getting some very high-level initial expectations on what people think longitudinal data collection should involve. Since this is a huge topic, I was thinking that it might be useful to have a quick discussion round before I put together a strawman.

OTOH we already have a pretty full schedule, so if people prefer, I can just go ahead with a first attempt and we can discuss it next time.


I would like a discussion to be had about finalizing the direction that the previously selected value functionality should take. Remembering previously entered value in ODK Collect

I created a mockup that shows how to the UI could represent the functionality and concerns that were stated in the conversation thread.

Timezones conversions throwing me off! Currently in Jamaica and got the wrong time for the meeting so this came in late.
