[ODK Community] Updating choice options in the field

You would have to write your own app to manage this. You can launch that
app from within the survey using the 'String from 3rd party app' widget.
Your app would need to do the sharing and displaying of choices, returning
the choice picked by the respondent.

The newer tools we are developing - ODK Tables and ODK Survey - would be
able to support this, but any functionality like this would require higher
network connectivity and a cloud server to capture these updates and
disseminate them to the devices.

We're doing household surveys in a couple of slums, and we want to update
answer options on one question based on answers given (ie if a respondent
states that they send their children to a school not on our listing then we
want that to be an option for future respondents to pick).

Is there any way of doing this using ODK (ie using internet/phone network
to sync options between our LG Optimus Chic PDAs)? The surveys have been
programmed using xls forms.
