ODK Tables

ODK Tables is a program that allows you to visualize and update existing data. Using Tables as your entry-point to data collection, you will be able to gather data using ODK Survey, sync it to a server using ODK Services, and have other users download and edit this same data on their own devices.

Tables also enables web developers to build powerful data management applications to handle their complex workflows. While Survey follows a traditional data collection workflow, similar to that of Collect, Tables gives you the flexibility to implement your own arbitrary complex workflow. For example you might collect data via a customized mapping interface: Tables allows you to build an application using web technologies to achieve that.

Note

ODK Tables only works on Android 4.2 and newer devices.

We have included a sample application built on top of Tables along with a handful of data tables that showcase some of its features.
