Overall Objective

The ODK-X Suite is an upgrade of the ODK tools intended to resolve the limitations of the ODK 1.0 data collection workflow. This ODK generation comes with advanced features that extends the capabilities of the Mobile Data Collection platforms (ODK-Aggregate). The ODK-X tool suite is targeted at advanced users who are unable to complete their workflows with the ODK tools. With ODK-X, you create data management applications that consist of survey forms as well as JavaScript based web apps that allow you to render a fully customised user interface and implement business logic to collect, manage, and visualize data all on the Android device. Of interest is the ability to conduct longitudinal studies, ability to easily customize all screens on mobile devices, a flexible user-directed navigation of survey, advanced handling of repeat groups, bi-directional synchronisation of data across devices, advanced data curation and visualisation on the device and row-level access filters
