Dear user,
The best way would be to import the data into Collect, export it to CSV/Excel and import it in your app.
Many thanks,
Open Foris Team

Thanks for the answer but we want to import from collect mobile directly into our app without using open foris collect desktop.

Hi, Collect format is as XML and collect-data file is basically a zip file. If you change its file extension into zip, extract the zip and you will see folder data, and that contains folders 1,2,3 for entry, cleansing and analysis level data, respectively.

Schema is located in file idml.xml
