Demo User

Hey guys,

I’m monitoring the dodoma program from MZ, and I was looking at the
submission report to see the activity. In the submission report, I was
seeing some normal submissions from users within the domain, but I was also
seeing some “demo_user” submissions.

No one should be submitting in demo now that we’re past our recent training,
so I wanted to dig a little deeper. I opened a couple of those forms and
noticed that the “device_ID” is displayed. I copied the couple device ID
(they were different) down because I wanted to compare that device ID to the
list of device IDs shown up in Danny’s "reassign up submissions"
functionality. I was thinking this could lead me to the user that was
submitting these “demo” forms and then correct it.

However, when reviewing the list, the device IDs grabbed from the
"demo_user" forms don’t match any of the current (or past) device IDs from
the current users in our domain. What’s going on here?

I want to try to rectify this problem because someone is spending time on
"demo_user" forms.

Thanks,
Nick

Okay, case closed!

I’d made a mistake when copying the device_IDs over. They did match the
current device_IDs from our users.

Interestingly, I realized that these were the practice forms they filled out
during our recent training, and they didn’t send during training. Those
forms are now being sent in during normal, real form submission because the
"demo" and “real” form submission queues in CommCare are the same.

I just didn’t realize this before.

Nick,

Good to hear things got sorted out. Brian used to report that users would
fairly frequently use the Demo Mode to practice entering forms, so it’s not
necessarily an issue, but sounds like it’s a good thing you were on the case
here!

back in the day, demo mode and real mode did have separate transport queues.
did this change?

I think it may have changed when the transport layer was re-written. We can
probably get it back in without tremendous difficulty, though.

i don’t particularly care. the reason they were separated was to exclude the
demo forms from the ‘# unsent’ count in real mode.
