Grass Roots Survey Mobile App

Mobile App Install Android

Updated

The Grassroots Mobile Survey App will install on an iPhone, but because many of the world's Field Workers use Android phones, our instructions point to installing to an Android phone. If you're an iPhone user, check out the article on installing the GRMS on that phone. 


Here are the screens you'll become familiar with on the Grassroots Mobile Survey App. 

  1. Your Login Screen
  2. This is the screen that collects the contacts that belong to you as well as the survey settings.
  3. This is the screen that shows the numbers of synced and unsynced surveys on your phone.
