In this second installment of SurveyCTO’s webinar series, we show you how to update your household rosters by combining baseline and endline household rosters into one list in the SurveyCTO platform. We do so by assembling a choice list that captures all the members of a household, both new and previous. This choice list can be created in an endline survey, as well as in any midline surveys.
SurveyCTO is the most reliable, secure, and scalable mobile data collection platform for researchers and professionals working in offline settings.
In this webinar, we walk through a household survey example where we first create a roster of household members, followed by two rosters that match spouses to each other and children to parents. Lastly, we store those connections.
The newest version of SurveyCTO, 2.51, is designed to save you time. Whether you spend most of your time at the beginning of the data collection process – designing and testing survey forms within the server console – or towards the end – managing and reviewing field-based surveys – 2.51 has a new suite of tools to improve the quality of your data in less time.
SurveyCTO 2.41 is out – and our best version yet! Learn more about the new Likert appearance styles, review & correction options, Data Explorer import and export features, linking in from Stata or Excel, and more.
We’re excited to share our latest release with the SurveyCTO user community. With 2.40, you can enable a secure "review and correction" workflow for correcting incoming data (even encrypted submissions), collect richer GPS data with new support for shapes, traces, and offline maps, and much more!
The theme of our v1.40 release is freedom, because our development focus was on the removal of limitations. There's nothing too flashy or sexy about it – we're leaving that for our 2.0 release (which is already in development) – but we expect that the greater freedoms in v1.40 will lead to significant, potentially-dramatic quality-of-life improvements for many of our users...
The folks at open[Fn] have just released a SalesForce.com integration for SurveyCTO and other ODK-based systems, and we're very excited to have this new option available to our users. (SalesForce.com is a ridiculously powerful cloud platform that can be used for data monitoring, visualization, and management, priced at extremely steep discounts for nonprofits.) ...
In addition to vastly-improved offline support via local wi-fi networks, we added a REST API for programmatic access to server data and made some smaller improvements for Excel users.
