ODK Collect v1.15 Beta

Hi again,

I do not understand what exactly "web view image" (web appereance) works, but what I saw if that after that I could not move forward to next questions by swipping. I had to include buttons.

We know about this limitation and it's not only a bug in that new widget for example you can't select a video from GD using VideoWidget or the same with audio and AudioWidget. We will try to fix all those issues soon.

It's also a known issue https://github.com/opendatakit/collect/issues/1063 generally we assume this widget is not useful? Could you explain why you use it?

Thanks. I used it because it is included in All Widgets form to test. So my recommendation is to get out this appereance from there.

By the way, where can I found documentation to test align: 1 1 1 appereance. I haven´t use before. What external aligned image app can use?

To be honest it's the second one we probably should deprecate. I used this app https://github.com/opendatakit/alignedcamera it was a few months ago and that app crashed so I doubt anyone uses it.

Thanks. I understood and I am not interested to use it.

You should check for All Widgets form and eliminate those you are going to deprecate.

With file widget, you should include note that currently is only available for local files at device.


Thanks for reporting the issue, @Alexander_Torrado! https://github.com/opendatakit/collect/issues/2159 is the related issue and once we have a fix for that, we can also fix it for the file widget.

Hi @yanokwa

I tested it, it is working now.

For the notification, i have updated my form multiple times, and it working as expected as well.

I have tested on

  1. Galaxy Tab A (SM-T355) with Android version 6.0.1
  2. Samsung S6 (SM-G9257) with Android version 7.0
  3. Huawei Y336 with Android version 4.4.2.

For the Huawei, there was a small issue in dark theme, see the picture.

We just shipped another v1.15.0-beta.2 to the Play Store!

This beta fixes an issue that @nodari reported at Data comes wrapped in excel formula. We've also added a feature to only show the most recent version of a form.

@dicksonsamwel we've filed your issue at https://github.com/opendatakit/collect/issues/2230. Thanks for reporting it!


Please consider to review Transifex with recent traslations. I did some 16 hrs ago and did some fixing now.

@Alexander_Torrado we grab translations a few minutes before we do a release. Sounds like we just missed yours, but we'll get them for the full release on Sunday. Gracias!

Where can I test: #2007 Guidance hints? Or Is it possible to include in "All Widgets" form?

@Alexander_Torrado Thanks for all the careful verification! :1st_place_medal::trophy:

guidance_hint_form.xml.txt is the XML of a form you can use for verification.

There isn't yet a way to add guidance hints to XLSForms but there is a pull request open at https://github.com/XLSForm/pyxform/pull/206 if you or anyone else would like to review it. This will add a new guidance_hint column:

type name label hint guidance_hint relevant
int a label normal hint This question is skipped if the answer to ... is less than or equal to 5. ${num} > 5

Currently the All Widgets form only contains the different question types and doesn't include anything about calculations, logic or any other kind of extensions. If there's interest in adding more of that kind of content perhaps we could either add a new section or create a form specifically for logic and other extensions. You can find the current All Widgets form linked from the Collect README. Feel free to add comments if you see places to make additions or other changes. I have removed the two odd question types you and @Grzesiek2010 discussed above. For guidance hints specifically we would probably want to wait for that XLSForm support I mentioned above.

Understood. Thanks for your answer.

I do not use XML directly. I will wait to have xlsform to test it.
