Introduction to Data Collection

This video introduces Data Collection. When you have information to collect from many sources, Data Collection streamlines your process and helps ensure the consistency and accuracy of the resulting data. Information in Data Collection is automatically aggregated and you can view the data as a whole, or to view contributions from specific individuals or locations.

In addition to giving you control over the collection and aggregation of data, you can track the progress of those providing data using the Data Collection dashboard. The dashboard allows you to easily monitor submissions and approvals and track against deadlines. To give yourself a head start on your next report, reuse and roll forward your Data Collection.
