Can you add a new registers into completed grid and export to Collect Earth, yet recognize that the grid is completed?
To elaborate, my survey didn't have region attribute. Now, I added the region attribute, and re-exported a clone of it. But it doesn't recognize that the plots are already filled!!
The data should have already been in the database and when I load the original CEP file the data seems to be there.
When you clone a survey the cloned Survey's internal ID ( its URL ) will be different than the original one.
This means that the data that belongs to the original survey is not visible to the cloned one as the survey uses the internal ID to reference the records on the database.
A possible solution is that you :
This line looks like this:
Again, you can find the URI of the newer (cloned) survey if you open the placemark.idm.xml file inside the CEP file (you can open the CEP file or WinZIP or similar, or you can try to change the extension to ZIP)
That should work!
So basically, in brief, you are exporting the data from the original survey and importing it into the new one. BUT for this to work you need to make sure that the URI and name of the project (which is specified in the idm.xml file) are the same than in the new one that you have currently loaded in Collect Earth (the newer cloned one)
AS A GENERAL NOTE : When you import data from an XML(ZIP), the data will only be imported if it refers to the same survey (in this case the newer cloned one) than the survey that is CURRENTLY loaded (in use) in Collect Earth
I have tried the above answer but its not working. What could be the problem?

A kind request for the Team:
could you please develop a small utility program to facilitate the use of data with cloned surveys? That should work both with exported Collect Earth (.cep) and Collect (.collect-data) files. All what is needed are these two questions:
Output is the cloned XML. Playing with updated zip files is sometimes a bit frustrating.

And then the user will have to import the data into the cloned survey (Collect will check if the data is still compatible with the cloned survey during data import).

OF Collect ♦♦
this new data export feature would be a good solution, thanks!
