To get to shared resources select the Admin module and then Shared Resources.
Shared resources are made available to all surveys in an organisation. They conist of:
- Images, Video, Audio that can be included in questions and choices
- CSV files that contain reference data accessed using the search() function and the pulldata() function
- Maps used on the server for analysis
Select the Location tab.
Locations identify where a task should take place. They consist of GPS Coordinates and/or the ID of an NFC chip that will launch the task. The use of NFC chips allows a much greater precision in identify the task location as the NFC chip may be on a particular peice of equipment that needs to be maintained or control access to a room where the survey needs to take place.
When Editing / Adding Tasks you can select a named location rather than specifying the GPS coordinates / NFC chip. However you can also create new named locations while adding tasks.
Locations are stored in Groups which are defined in a spreadsheet. One group per worksheet.
Click the download button. This will download all the groups of locations into a spreadsheet. If there are no existing locations then this spreadsheet will have a single default worksheet called Group. The headings are:
UID - Enter the ID of the NFC chip here name - name of the location lat - Latitude of the location lon - longitude of the location
Rename the group worksheet. Add additional groups if required. Add locations to these groups and then to upload and replace the existing locations:
