How to: Export Participants
The Export participant tool is located inside the Site Admin dashboard. Only Site Administrators have access to the Import and Export tools.
To export participants we recommend that you follow these steps:
1. Select the participant data set you would like to export.
You can choose to export "Global Data Only (no study data)" or study specific data. Global data includes variables that are common to all individuals in your Ripple database; including name, contact information, and global variables.
2. Select the data variables you would like to download from the set.
You will have the option of downloading all of the variable fields in the data set or selecting a specific collection of fields to download by only checking the boxes of variables you wish to export. By default, all data variables are selected for export.
3. Select your time zone.
Select the time zone where you are located.
3. Click "Download".
Upon export, the file in CSV format will be saved to your downloads folder. The file will be in wide format (one row per participant). The file will include the participant GlobalID, which will allow you to match and merge participants across multiple studies.
