ODK Collect betas are an opportunity to get community feedback on upcoming releases. If you have an ongoing data collection campaign, we recommend quickly verifying part of your form on a test device. The release will be delayed until all reported issues are fixed.
Joining the beta program
To join the beta program, find ODK Collect in the Play Store and scroll all the way down. Please don't join the beta with a device or account actively used for data collection! In particular, note that joining the beta is account-based. If you use the same Google account across multiple devices, do not join the beta with that account.
Leaving the beta program
You can leave the beta program from the bottom of the Play Store page at any time. Once you leave, you will get the next production update when it is released. If you need to go back to the previous production release, uninstall and reinstall the app. Your settings will be reset but your forms will remain (though backups are always recommended).
What to check in this release
Thanks so much to everyone (@Jerry_Quarry_Mentang, @Yohan_Parmanand, @Heath623, @marabenta, @DavidM, @philippevg, @Veethahavya) who reported issues or made suggestions. Please verify that this beta fixes them!
The important changes to verify are:
- Repeats are supported in Google Sheets
- GPS reported accuracy can now go below 10 m
If you have some time, please also verify the other changes in the release notes:
Unlike our usual betas that run for a week, this one will run for two weeks because of the coming Easter holidays.
