Hi - I'm new to KoBo and am used to the Google Drive environment - I can't find anything about whether you can have multiple editors on a form in KoBo Toolbox. is there a way to share editing permissions?

but now we are having problems because my collaborator says that he cannot edit the form - he can enter data on the form and submit it, but we would like to both be able to add questions. I'm attaching a screenshot of how we have it set up. is there another step? thanks!

HI Annett,

 

Has the form been deployed as a project? I assume it is the case since your colleague can enter data. Once a form has been deployed as a project, it can no longer be modified. This is to avoid inconsistencies and database structure issues. Instead, the form must be edited / modified under the “form” section and then be redeployed as a new, separate project.

 

I hope this answers your question,

 

Best,

aha! yes, it has been deployed

so if it is being edited and not deployed, he can access it to add questions?

thank you!!

ok, I downloaded it and uploaded it into another form that has not been deployed…and now I can’t share it. is there anyway to share a form to edit it, or do we have to add questions to the library and then pull our colleagues questions out of the library? is there a simpler workflow for collaborating on form development (and please don’t say we need to create a google spreadsheet to develop the form in XLSForm format :P

thanks!
