Import data into Commcare Forms

Hi There,

I am working on an application for a patient record system in a clinic.
recently they have been experiencing some delays on Cloudcare and have
sometimes resorted to paper systems information during consultations. I
was wondering if there was a way to input the info into a excel template
and upload that into the CommCare system, much like you would for a bulk
upload of mobile workers? But instead this will populate fields in the
form.

Is something like this possible? (maybe with a python importer directly
into the CCHQ database?)

Kind regards,
Ameera

No worries! I found the help on this! thanks!

Huh… what method did you use for this? Would be interesting to hear
(just a pointer to which feature you used, not asking that you spend time
on a big write-up)

I realized that I accidentally replied to Eric instead of here :slight_smile:

Ameera, would you be willing to share the help that you received on this?

Hi all, I also have a use case for bulk-completion and upload of forms that
were originally done on paper. Could anyone point me to the method given in
response to Ameera’s question?

Sorry that was the incorrect link. Below is the correct link to the wiki
page i found on creating and updating cases from an excel sheet
