Setting up data synchronization

ODK Collect will synchronize all your field samplings to GeoAgro servers. Once they're synced, if not properly set, the data in your mobile device may be removed. To avoid data losses (e.g. due to data connection interruptions), we advise you to make sure this option is disabled. You can do this by accessing the app settings, going to the User interface section and disabling the Delete after send option, as shown below.
