ODK-X Scan Form Designer¶
ODK-X Scan uses the ODK-X Scan Form Designer to create machine-readable forms. Scan is only compatible with forms created in the Scan Form Designer and loaded onto the phone. They can then be chosen among the templates within ODK-X Scan and successfully processed on the device.
Find the Scan Form Designer inside a tab in the ODK-X Application Designer using Google Chrome.
You muse use Google Chrome; other web browsers are not compatible at this time.
A basic overview of the steps to design a form are:
Set the page style
Add images and data fields
Save form (for future editing) and Export form to ODK-X Scan app
Print form for users to complete by hand
You can begin using the Scan app once you've got a form template and forms with handwritten data entered.
Video tutorials for each of these steps –from designing to exporting your form template– are available as a YouTube playlist.
Once you have exported your completed form you can transfer the form template to the ODK-X Scan app and begin scanning paper forms. See the ODK-X Scan documentation for more on those next steps.
