Editing data in the database

Hi There,

I was wondering whether it is possible to edit the data we have collected
in the data base so that we don’t have to edit it every time we download
the data for running through stata.

Cheers,
Jess

Hi Jess,

While there is no way to edit the database directly, here are a couple
strategies our partners have used:

  1. Create a CommCare application for project administrators to use to
    update case properties that are incorrect.

  2. You can use the excel importer to update case properties that are
    incorrect

  3. Include an “edit” form in your mobile app to allow for updating
    registration case properties that were entered incorrectly

  4. Archive forms that are incorrect. Read more about archiving here:

Thanks,
Amelia
