KoBoToolbox allows data collection in multiple ways. Because KoBoToolbox is built on the Xform/ODK technology, our forms are compatible with a number of different tools that can be used for data collection. We recommend using KoBoCollect as the tool of choice for Android devices, and Web Forms (Enketo) for collecting data on all other devices (including iPhones, iPads, or any laptop or computer).

Collecting data using the Enketo Webform

Web Forms, also known as Enketo, are used by KoBoToolbox to preview your forms and to enter data directly on your computer. But you can use web forms also for collecting data on your mobile devices - even if you're offline at the time of data collection. Some features are still being actively developed for Enketo, so some special questions may not be fully supported yet on every device.

For details on how to use Web Forms (Enketo), read this article.
