About the webinar

This Webinar is part of the 2021 ActivityInfo Training Webinar Series. These Webinars are ideal for users of ActivityInfo who wish to master various features and aspects of the platform for their daily work in Monitoring and Evaluation data collection activities or information management tasks.

Behind the scenes, ActivityInfo is a powerful relational database. During this one hour session you will learn about the ActivityInfo API from first principles. This will help with querying data from ActivityInfo, pushing data into ActivityInfo with the API, or automating routine tasks.

Some of the key points we will cover are:

  • ActivityInfo's data model
  • The query API
  • Exporting data
  • Updating data in ActivityInfo
  • Automating routine tasks around user management, database creation and more.
  • Automating monthly submissions to Humanitarian Coordination databases

Is this Webinar for me?

  • Do you want to start automating data management routine tasks and submissions?
