Testing out XLSForm on Sandbox server

1. What is the problem? Be very detailed.
I would like to do a test run of creating an XLSForm, convert it to XForm, upload it (sandbox aggregate server?), and trial the survey on Collect.

2. What app or server are you using and on what device and operating system? Include version numbers.
I am using the latest version of collect, and the online version of XLSForm. I want to use the sandbox aggregate server as I do not have a server currently set up to use to run ODK. I plan to eventually set up a server, but until then want to use the sandbox aggregate server.

3. What you have you tried to fix the problem?
I have tried reading:

I have tried reading other support topics on the forum.

4. What steps can we take to reproduce the problem?
If someone could advise how I can get an XForm into ODK Collect without using my own server (using the sandbox server would be ideal).

I am very new to using ODK, and I am finding it difficult to use the ODK documents to gain any traction to understanding how to use any of the tools. If anyone knows of any good training courses to attend online (or potentially in person) I would appreciate any recommendations.

Hi @srichards68

using the demo server you can just use the forms available there. It's not possible to add your own forms. You would need to set up your own aggregate or you can test uploading forms to Google Sheets as well.

Thank you for your response. Could you please advise how to test uploading via google sheets? Or provide me with a link to an ODK doc that would advise how to use this option?

@yanokwa Hey, can you help me install ODK central using the Sandbox?
