Briefcase Installation and Setup

Installing Briefcase

  • Make sure to download and install Java 8 or higher on your system.
  • Download ODK Briefcase vN.N.N.jar.
  • Double click and start the file.
  • If that doesn't work for you try running java -jar path_to_jar from the command line.

Upon first starting, Briefcase will ask for the directory under which to create the ODK Briefcase Storage area. An ODK Briefcase Storage folder will be created here to hold all the blank forms and finalized forms.

Tip

You can change the storage location for Briefcase from the Settings tab.
