Connect Epicollect 5 with Power BI Online/Desktop

Epicollect 5 is an offline Mobile app (On field Data collection) and Server (Online Server storage of uploaded data) model system. I wish to connect to the Epicollect 5 server but am not able to do so. How can this be achieved?

@Sagarkansal,

There is no built-in connector for Epicollect 5 in Power BI.

You would need to contact Epicollect 5 support to check if it has OData feed available or a backend database or how to use its API to retrieve data. It is possible to connect to database in Power BI Desktop, and you can connect straight to the OData feed from Power BI Desktop or use the web entry in Power BI desktop to connect to API.

Lydia
