Welcome to ODK's Docs!#
ODK is a data collection platform that helps researchers, field teams, and other professionals collect the data they need wherever it is. For a quick start, read Getting Started With ODK.
In most cases, users of ODK:
Create forms using the XLSForm standard in Excel or Google Sheets.
Upload survey data from Collect to Central.
While this is the most popular workflow, it is not the only way to do things because ODK is a very flexible platform. For example, instead of using the Collect app, you can use a browser to fill out web forms. With ODK, you have complete control over your data collection.
