This article summarizes the process of downloading Self Capture submissions. Each Self Captures qualitative survey that gets any submission will be able to download all of those submissions. Only the role that chooses to download the responses at that time will receive the download. Project members can download survey responses multiple times and at any time in the life of the project.


What roles can download Self Capture survey submissions?

  • Project Owners
  • Editors
  • Collaborators
  • Omni-recruiters
  • Recruiters (only able to download the PII they own)


How does the PII setting work with Self Capture submissions?

If the 'Limit PII' setting is enabled, Project Owner, Editors, and Collaborators roles will only be able to download the PII they own (any respondent information they input).
