Nafundi and eHealth Nigeria add admin mode to ODK Collect

One long requested addition to Open Data Kit's mobile client has been admin mode. Today, I'm excited to announce that Nafundi, with support from eHealth Nigeria, has just added admin mode to ODK Collect!

Admin mode enables you to customize what features in ODK Collect are available to your data collectors. For example, you can choose what buttons appear on the main screen in order to prevent collectors from accidentally editing or deleting saved forms. Admin mode can also prevent collectors from jumping to arbitrary prompts, renaming saved forms, or changing any of ODK Collect's settings unless they know the admin password.

You can try admin mode in ODK Collect v1.2.2 on the Google Play Store or at the ODK Downloads site.
