From log-in to data analysis, each section provides specific instructions for utilizing ELMO's many features. (<a href="http://getelmo.org/try-it/">Test Drives</a> are available if you want to try this out). <em><strong>We are currently supporting two versions of ELMO, ELMO 4.x and 5.x</strong>.</em> There are more features in ELMO 5.x, but we are still in the process of testing and documentation. For now, you can find links to 4.x version of documentation below. ELMO Online has two working modes - Admin Mode and Mission Mode - providing users with different levels of editing privilege across and within missions. <ul> <li>Users with administrator access can enter Admin Mode to create new missions, to edit forms and questions across all missions in ELMO, and to add or remove users across all missions. Admin Mode should only be accessed when creating a new mission, or for editing across all missions in ELMO.</li> <li>All other work in ELMO should be done in Mission Mode, which provides users access to all ELMO features necessary for building and running a mission or field project, including: editing forms, questions, and user permission within the mission at hand. Observers, staffers, and coordinators by default work in Mission Mode.</li> </ul> [one_half] <h3 style="text-align: left;"><strong><a title="Setting up a mission and your hardware" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/setting-up-a-mission-and-your-hardware/">Setting Up a Mission (4.x) </a></strong></h3> This section explains how to create a unique mission within ELMO. The different levels of ELMO user access, how to create and manage user accounts, and how to prepare and run missions in different languages are also explained here. <ul> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/setting-up-a-mission-and-your-hardware/#Hardware">Hardware considerations</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/setting-up-a-mission-and-your-hardware/#InstallELMO">Installing ELMO on your own server</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/setting-up-a-mission-and-your-hardware/#CreateMission">Create a mission</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/setting-up-a-mission-and-your-hardware/#CreateUsers">Create users</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/setting-up-a-mission-and-your-hardware/#LanguageSettings">Language settings</a></li> </ul> <h3 style="text-align: left;"><strong><a title="Creating and Editing Forms" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/creating-and-editing-forms/">Creating and Editing Forms (4.x) </a></strong></h3> Forms are what observers use to assess different aspects of an election process (e.g. opening, polling, closing, counting, and tabulation). Forms are created in ELMO and populated with questions. How to create forms, questions, and the different parts of questions (option sets) are explained in this section. <ul> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/creating-and-editing-forms/#GenForm">Creating general forms</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/creating-and-editing-forms/#StandForms">Creating a standard form</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/creating-and-editing-forms/#SMSForms">Creating a SMS form</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/creating-and-editing-forms/#PrintingForms">Printing forms</a></li> </ul> <h3><strong>Data Architecture (4.x)</strong></h3> Under development. This section will explain some of ELMO's deeper level data architecture, which is important to understand if you want better comparative analysis. Most ELMO users will not need to know this information, but for those interested in how missions will be able to compare data across time, or how slightly customized questions will still fundamentally remain the same, this section is for you. <ul> <li><a href="documentation/start/data-architecture/#Standards">Standard Templates (Option Sets, Questions, and Forms)</a></li> <li>Data Integrity Checks</li> <li>Tagging</li> </ul> <h3 style="text-align: left;"><strong><a title="Collecting and Submitting Data" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/collecting-and-submitting-data/">Collecting and Submitting Data (4.x)</a></strong></h3> ELMO allows users to submit observations using a tablet, smart phone, SMS, or an internet browser. This section explains what is needed and how to submit using these options. <ul> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/collecting-and-submitting-data/#ElmoOnline">Submitting data on ELMO Online</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/collecting-and-submitting-data/#Tablet">Submitting data via tablet and smart phone</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/collecting-and-submitting-data/#SMS">Submitting data via SMS</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/collecting-and-submitting-data/#ReviewingData">Reviewing data received by observers</a></li> </ul> <h3 style="text-align: left;"><strong><a style="box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.298039);" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/building-reports-and-analyzing-data/#SampleReports">Building Reports and Analyzing Data (4.x)</a></strong></h3> Once data is received it can be converted into reports for analysis and use during statement writing. This section explains how to: generate a report, export a report to other software for further analysis, use the search function to find data in ELMO, and review real-time data as it comes in via the dashboard function. <ul> <li><a style="box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.298039);" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/building-reports-and-analyzing-data/#SampleReports">Sample reports</a></li> <li><a style="box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.298039);" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/building-reports-and-analyzing-data/#BuildReport">Building reports</a></li> <li><a style="box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.298039);" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/building-reports-and-analyzing-data/#Export">Exporting reports to Excel</a></li> <li><a style="box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.298039);" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/building-reports-and-analyzing-data/#Dashboard">Viewing the dashboard</a></li> <li>Viewing the data in Tableau {coming soon}</li> <li><span style="color: #e56a3a; text-decoration: none; text-underline: none;"><a style="box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.298039);" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/building-reports-and-analyzing-data/#Search">Using the search function</a></span></li> </ul> <h3><strong><a title="Working with Teams in the Field" href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/fieldwork/">Working with Teams in the Field (4.x)</a></strong></h3> This section explains how a message can be broadcast from ELMO to observers, allowing for important information to reach observers in the field quickly. It also provides instructions for using mission override, a function that lets observers submit incomplete forms (ELMO default settings prevent observers from submitting incomplete forms). <ul> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/fieldwork/#bc">Broadcasting messages</a></li> <li><a href="http://getelmo.org/documentation/start/fieldwork/#override">Mission override</a></li> </ul>
