New features - bulk uploads

Just to clarify there is now a system in place to work on multiple entry updates in Epicollect5 cloud database, using a downloaded .csv work file (in our case this would be an extract from our FreshWater Catalogue Epicollect5 cloud database). Great!

A couple of questions:

The edited/changed data can then be uploading back to the cloud database, and these will overwrite the pre-existing records?

Can a bulk download be done for a set of selected entries only (i.e. a subset of the cloud data)?

Hi,

the answer to both questions is yes, we would highly recommend your read our User Guide for more info → Bulk Uploads - Epicollect5 Data Collection User Guide

Mainly, bulk edits of existing entries → https://docs.epicollect.net/web-application/bulk-uploads#parent-forms-bulk-edits

Subsets → https://docs.epicollect.net/web-application/bulk-uploads#current-view-subset-file
