One of CommCare's many built-in integration options is the Excel Dashboard integration, which allows programmatic teams to automatically feed their CommCare data into excel with a few easy steps. As part of the WHO FFX template package, we created a template Excel Dashboard to be downloaded and used by any organizations deploying the WHO FFX app.
