Intro to Forms in rtSurvey¶
Forms used in the rtSurvey ecosystem are XML documents following the rtSurvey XForms specification, which is originally based on and backward compatible with ODK XForms specification, a subset of the W3C XForms specification.
rtSurvey users do not have to code XForms directly in XML. Instead, we provide our users with XLSForm tools to develop from simple to highly complex forms (such as grid layout, and search over multiple databases) using our Excel-based form template.
Once your XLSForm has been designed you can upload the form to rtCloud and let the system handle the conversion to XML formdef for you.
