Using CommCare Apps on the Web

When you build a CommCare app, you can choose to deploy it to a mobile device, to the web, or both! Web apps run on the browser and require internet connectivity.

Web apps can be used for:

  • Testing CommCare applications or forms

  • A data entry person who needs to be able to modify a mobile users case list or add additional data

  • Cases from mobile applications that are shared with a web app- for example, allowing a nurse at a clinic to update cases when patients visit. A Community Health Worker with a mobile handset is then able to view the updates from the clinic and see what instructions the patient was given.
