In this guide, we create a Notebook that contains various pivot tables and maps to show overviews and drill-downs for the various activities run by the organizations included in the 3W.
In this guide, we will create a simple database to measure the number of beneficiaries we reached with our income generation training activities. We will disaggregate this number based on gender (male, female, other) and refugee status (refugee, non refugee).
Create and share a crowdsourcing survey for disaster management using collection links and a reviewer’s section
In this guide, we design a form for a simple crowdsourcing survey to collect information from the public about damaged entities in an affected area. We also use a Reviewer’s section, only be visible to the disaster management team, to help prioritization.
In this guide, we design a simple Post Training Evaluation Survey and use Collection links to collect anonymous responses from multiple respondents. We then take a look at how this data can be viewed and analyzed in real-time to support evidence-based decision making.
In this article, we explore how you can use ActivityInfo and maps to assess sites and plan an intervention before going out in the field. Such an exercise can provide you with insights about the situation in the field. For example, you can investigate whether a site can be easily accessed thanks to existing infrastructure using a Street and a Satellite basemap or check if it is located in an urban area or in a less densely populated location using a Population Density Map.
In this guide, we take a look at how you can create a form to host an indexable inventory for your qualitative content in ActivityInfo. You can create a database, a folder or a form to collect and store various qualitative data such as user stories, transcripts, images, recordings, case studies or any other resource that has to do with your research and activities. You can also design your form in such a way that all your content is indexed and easily found based on the criteria you select.
It is now possible for people with different organizational roles and with a different assignment to contribute to the same record. For example, a data entry officer or an implementing partner can fill in the fields of the form and a reviewer or a donor can indicate if the record is approved for publication.
