Use Kaizen Surveys as a Mobile Data Collection tool.
Kaizen Surveys can be run on phones, tablets, chromebooks, laptops and desktops and does not require online access.
Survey results can be synced with the cloud (Google Drive including Google Spreadsheets) once online accces is available.
Here is a sample scenario for using Kaizen Surveys for data collection. In this scenario we have an administrator and multiple people who are ‘data collectors’ (using phones/tablets/chromebooks/laptops).
1) Administrator creates a share with access given for all who will be data collectors.
A share is simply a folder on a cloud service (in this case Google Drive) which is shared with others.
(Note that access to additional data collectors can be done at anytime through Google Drive. You can also use existing groups if your organization uses Google Apps.)
2) Administrator creates a survey which uses the share created above.
On the final screen of the create new survey wizard, the adminstrator may want to select Upload Only for Users if desired.
3) Administrator may optionally publish the survey so data collectors can easily get the survey.
Periodically, the adminstrator can sync updates for the survey and then export those changes to the Google Spreadsheet.
