Fulcrum supports importing existing data into your custom apps for field deployment. This is useful when you have pre-existing information you want to make available to field staff to either update in the field, or use as reference while collecting additional information.
Data in either CSV or shapefile format can be imported.
To get data loaded in, first build out our field collection app to your specifications using the Fulcrum App Designer. You can include fields to which you want to import attributes, as well as new survey questions to fill in while out in the field. After your app is built to meet your needs, click the Import Data button from the main management screen or your app’s dashboard page.
Notes: When importing data that contains media attachments the media files and CSV file(s) must all be contained in a single ZIP file.
When importing data into an app, make sure that the import file does not have more than 10,000 records (10,001 rows). The importer can only import 10,000 records at one time.
Fulcrum’s importer will walk you through a step-by-step process to do several things before it starts the actual import:
