Referencing the Geodatabase

The following section describes how to reference the Geodatabase of ActivityInfo, using a Reference Field in your Form, to allow Users to select a location from the built-in locations. This way you can reach a list of available locations (e.g. Provinces, Governorates etc.), let your users select from this list and maintain consistency in your data.

How to reference the Geodatabase

  • In the Form Design page, click on "Reference" to select it from the Fields tab.

  • Search for the Geodatabase and click on it to reveal the list of countries.

  • Click on the country you want, to reveal the locations and select the location you want to use.
  • Click on "Continue".

If you want to use a list of countries click on "Global" instead.

Fill in the Properties of the Reference field by providing:

  • Label: type the question for which the user will select an option
  • Description: optionally provide a description
  • Code: optionally provide a code

In the Settings check the boxes you want to apply for the field.

  • Click on "Done" to add the field.
  • The Reference field has been added to the Form.
  • When you finish adding fields, click on "Save" to save the Form.

  • While adding Records, users will be able to select a location from the Geodatabase.
