Using ODK to develop data entry form

I am new to the ODK development. I would like to know if it is possible to
use the ODK to develop forms for data entry on an android tablet rather
than a mobile phone. If the answer is yes, can we use the available tools
(like Excel) to do the form. Do you know of any links or websites for more
information
Thanks for the help in advance.

ODK works on most Android devices (including tablets). Yes, you can
use XLSForm to design the form. Go to http://opendatakit.org/use and
http://opendatakit.org/help for more information on how to use ODK.

I have questions on using ODK for data collection. After the user submitted
the data to the backend, how do the user retrieve the data? Do I have to
write some SQL statement to retrieve the information?
Thanks for the help.

Hi Edward,

The best way to export the data is using CSV or ODK Briefcase. If you
want to stream the data to another web service (Google Fusion Tables,
JSON) you can do that as well (and pull the data from there).

You can also use the Briefcase API
(https://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/BriefcaseAggregateAPI) to
pull the data or retrieve the data with SQL (assuming a local
MySQL/PostgreSQL install) using
https://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/AggregateDatabaseStructure.

Mr. Yaw Anokwa or to whom it may concern,
I have two questions that I hope you can help me
with. 1) I noticed that I am not able to use 'goto label' on my Excel
spreadsheet where I tried publishing it on Formhub. I assume goto is not a
'type' that is supported. Am I correct or am I wrong? 2) What and how can I
do to get involve to create such a 'type'? I think the 'goto label' is a
very handy thing to have. I think OpenData kit has a lot of potential, but
it also has a lot of limitation.
Thank you for your help.

Hi Edward,

If you want to do branching, use the relevancy. XForms doesn't support
the goto concept so ODK Collect and the current generation of ODK
tools will likely never support it.

As far as ODK's limitations, code or cash contributions are always welcome.

Thanks,

Yaw

'XLSForm' is a survey design tool for use with ODK Collect and the older
tools; it does not work with ODK Survey.

'XLSXConverter' is the survey design tool for the newer ODK Survey; *it
does not work with ODK Collect. *

'goto' does not exist in XLSForm; it is a feature of the newer
XLSXConverter and ODK Survey.
