The ODK 1 TSC is studying how temporal data (dates, times, dates with times) is used by end-users like you!
We're interested in knowing what happens to temporal data in your forms after exporting submissions to CSV files or publishing them to Google Sheets and Fusion Tables. We want to know, are they used just for ordering rows? are they transformed to calculate durations between events? maybe other fancy uses?
Also, what are the most frequent hurdles of working with temporal data collected with ODK? Want to share any horror story about time zones? Know any neat tricks to make them compatible with third-party apps (Excel, LibreOffice, ...)?
If any of your forms has
dateTime fields in them odds are that sharing your experience and thoughts is going to help us!. Write a comment and let us know
