To start collecting data for a particular project you will need to load the project form onto the phone.

You will need to have data access either using a mobile data network (3G etc.) or via connection to a wireless network.

By default, the EpiCollect 'demoproject' is loaded onto your phone. However, we will briefly run through how to add another project.

From the Home screen (which appears when you launch EpiCollect - as left), tap 'Settings'

The Settings Screen indicates a number of options for customising EpiCollect and we shall explain these in more detail here:

However, for the time being just focus on the last text box titled 'Project'.

As mentioned, the 'demoproject' is already loaded.

To add a new project, tap the textbox that says 'demoproject'

You will see a 'Select Project' popup. This allows you to either choose a currently loaded project (you can have many projects on one phone) or load a new project. Tap 'New' to load a new project.

Here is where you enter the name of the project you would like to load.

Clicking 'Done' loads the project and accompanying forms into EpiCollect.

 

You can switch back to the demoproject (or another project you have loaded) at any time by following the same instructions. Furthermore, the 'Delete Project' button below the Project textbox allows you to choose a project to delete.

Once loaded you are ready to start collecting data. Click the button marked 'EpiCollect' in the top left of the WIndow to return to the main homescreen.

You are now ready to start entering data, so please click the link 'Adding a New Entry' below.
