I’m excited to announce the addition of a new feature in ODK Collect — admin mode!

Admin mode enables you to customize what features in ODK Collect are available to your data collectors.

For example, you can choose what buttons appear on the main screen in order to prevent collectors from accidentally editing or deleting saved forms.

You can also prevent collectors from jumping to arbitrary prompts, renaming saved forms, or changing any of ODK Collect’s settings unless they know the admin password.

You can try admin mode in ODK Collect v1.2.2 on the Google Play Store or at the ODK download site.

This functionality is possible because eHealth Nigeria hired the ODK consultants at Nafundi to create and add it to ODK. Thanks to eHealth Nigeria for their contribution!
