Importing an XLSForm into ActivityInfo

The XLSForm is a widely-used standard for defining mobile data collection questionnaires. Instead of adding and designing a Form, you can import an XLSForm into ActivityInfo and turn into a Form in the platform.

The XLSForm import function is currently in BETA mode and is designed to facilitate the migration from XLSForm-based tools by doing its best to translate XLSForm questions, choices, and formulas into ActivityInfo.
