Listing / Synching Data

 

As a reminder, EpiCollect+ DOES NOT require any network connectivity (2/4/4G or wireless) for the collection of data. however, to synchronise with a project website (ie send a copy of data collected on the device to the project website) network connectivity IS required.

When a questionnaire is complete, a user is presented with a 'Submit' button which allows them to store data in the phones database. Once one or multiple entries are stored, there are a number of ways of synching the data (ie sending a copy) to the project website:

An entry can be synched directly after collecting data.
Entries can be synched from the List Entries screen at any time
Entries can be synched from the EpiCollect+ homescreen at any time.

The following screenshots show the process for synching directly after completing an entry:

When a user has completed an entry and tapped 'Store' they are presented with two choices, either to add another entry or to list/synch entries (left screenshot above). Selecting 'List/Synch Entries' will take them to the list entries screen which shows a list of all entries collected on the device for that form (middle screenshot above). Entries are listed with their synchronisation status (N-not synchronised).

Tapping 'Send Data to Remote Server(s)' will synchronise data with the project database, and on success, the 'Synchronisation successful' message appears (right screenshot above).

When successfully synched, the synchronisation status of entries changes from 'N' to 'Y' as in the following screenshots:

On successful synchronisation, the sync status of an entry changes from 'N' to 'Y' and the top button greys out indicating
'No Data to Send to Server(s)'.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Synching entries one at a time in this fashion can prove time consuming so there are two methods for synching data following the collection of multiple entries.

This is useful when, for example, data collection is occurring in areas where no network connectivity is available.

Note: To synchronise data, the device must have network connection - either 2/3/4G etc or wireless.

We will now detail the facility to view maps of data on the phone.
