The Settings Menu on an iPhone


There are a number of things that you can specify within the settings menu which are described below.








From the homescreen, tap the 'Settings' option




Listing Entries after Synchronising


Confirm Delete: If switched on you will be asked to confirm before deleting an Entry.

Show Welcome : If switched on, each time you launch EpiCollect, the 'splash' screen showing the icon and small map will be displayed.

Update Forms : If switched on, should the form used within a particular project change (this is undertaken by the person who setup a particular projcet), the form version on your phone will be updated automatically.

PNG not JPG : Choice of formats for saving images from the camera.

JPEG Quality : The lower the quality the smaller the filesize. This can affect the time images will take to be sent to the central project website during synchronisation

List Max : Specifies the maximum number of entries to display on the List Entries screen at one time.

Map Max : Specifies the maximum number of points to display on the map at any one time.

User Email: You should enter a valid email address when collecting data.

Form URL :This is used when you are sending your data to your own servers - in most cases you will not need to worry about this (see Developers section)


That concludes our run through on how to create a project and load and collect data using EpiCollect on an iPhone .

We will now move on to the facilities available at the central Project website where you can download, view data on maps, chart and filter all data submitted to a particular project.
