Questions for Kinaki Online Forms

The Questions page for Online Forms contains many of the same features seen in other methods.  

For Kinaki Online Forms, it is our recommendation to follow these steps and generate a new survey or form. To learn how to add questions for your online form, visit this page of the Knowledge Hub.  

Alternatively, it is possible to import questions to use with an Online Form in .XLS format. This can allow use of a survey or form designed with services such as KoBo Collect, ODK, or Google Forms to be launched with Kinaki for easy online data collection. 

This can be a helpful process if you are moving a previously designed data collection tool to Kinaki. 

To import questions to Kinaki, select the Import button at the top of the Questions table.

This will open an area to upload a .xlsx file to Kinaki. Select a file that contains the questions you wish to import. This often follows a format where questions (and possible responses) are divided by columns, as well as another row which described the question format (for example, number, text, single-choice, etc.). Kinaki will use these columns to discern the contents of each question. 

As you import your file, Kinaki will note any duplicate or incompatible questions. This may only occur if you have an incorrect format or existing questions in your data collection tool. Note any discrepancies and use this information to either continue with the import or make changes to your file/questions. 

Once Kinaki has uploaded a file, you be prompted to select a language. Select from the list of available options and continue to finalize your import process.
