Hello, I'd like to use the export raw data function without accessing survey's summary report page, is it possible?
Thank you for attention

export is connected to a report, because the report defines which questions to export, and whether some respondents should be filtered out.

But you can put the link to the exports on report portals, if you need quicker access to it.

for all surveys? If so, you need to create a custom plugin to do this. That would require java programming skills.

ok, so I can write my own plugin for export raw data for example every nite at 2 o'clock. Should I implement the IReport interface? wich function may I call for exporting raw data -in cvs format? in the plugin API docs I found just one method called getReportHtml for this interface, but I'm not sure this could be what I'm looking for.

thank you for attention

Actually, it is not that simple. You actually need to get all respondents for a survey one by one, get the response value for each, and write it to a file. All of this is doable from the API, but a little work to do.

We'll see if we can get the built-in export exposed in an API call. Perhaps 6.3 or 6.4.
