  1. Edit the survey through Open Foris Collect, go to the main tab and add the URL in the "Extra map URL" text box. Then export the CEP again and you are done. alt text
  2. Edit the earth.properties file in the folder where the files for Collect Earth are stored ( C:\Users*YOUR_USER*\AppData\Roaming\CollectEarth - attention AppData is a hidden folder, you can also open the folder by clicking on Tools->Open Data Folder ) and edit these line:

Possible examples are :
