ODK TAB Call - 2021-05-26

These calls bring together the Technical Advisory Board for the ODK suite (@TAB) to discuss roadmaps, working groups, and other issues of technical governance. Everyone is welcome to come to these calls, but only TAB members may talk.

The calls are held every two weeks in our UberConference room. We put the agenda, audio, and transcript of every call in this document.

Our next call will be Wed, 26-05-2021. The meeting time should be shown in your timezone above.

The agenda is tentatively as follows:

The agenda can also be seen in the agenda document

If there are topics you would like to add to the TAB's agenda, please comment below. :point_down:

@aurdipas Thanks for sharing the agenda. Appreciate the time and hard work put in by the @TAB

My suggestions are as under:-

  1. At present in v1.2, the edit option redirects to the web form with pre-filled values. But, to access the same the user has to be a logged in user. However, while using APIs in custom build package/ dashboards, the edit feature using the enketo is not available. We may have a feature to edit the form in the enketo format as given in the ODK Central front end by APIs.

  2. Customisation in front end using the settings option - Theme color, upload a new theme, logos, menu options, user permission sets to access the pages.

  3. The dashboard chart for the submissions -> forms -> Projects.

  4. One-click upgrade of ODK Central using the administrator front end.

I'd like to get initial reactions from the TAB on some of the features (access tracking, submission edit diff, usage analytics) we have planned for the next Central release.
