6. Managing Data in your deployment

Last updated 10 months ago

A post is a report of a single instance of something in the deployment. It can be made up of many fields, such as Title, Description, Date, Links, and/or location. Ushahidi allows for collection of posts via

  • SMS: These can be configured to come in via SMSSync, FrontlineSMS, Nexmo and Twilio.

  • Twitter: You can pull our tweets based on specific hashtags, search terms, and/or directly from specific accounts.

  • Email: You can configure your deployment to receive post from an email address

NB: You can configure SMS, Twitter and Email as data sources as described in Section 3.4 of this manual

  • Web(your deployment page online): Since Ushahidi is responsive, you can add a post from the web app from any device that can access the internet (a computer, tablet, or mobile phone).

  • Smartphone apps: Our native applications on Android and iOS are still a work in progress at the moment.
