May 20, 2015

We’re happy to announce a new feature available on CommCare’s Standard plan: the Lookup Tables question type.

Lookup Tables allow your mobile applications to “look up” information from a spreadsheet that is uploaded to your project space. The new question type links to any Lookup Tables you’ve created, making it easier to reference this information in your app. Lookup tables are great when you want to reference large amounts of information, such as Weight-for-Age Z Score tables for nutrition projects or extensive geographical locations like state, district, cluster, village.
