Send an export of your survey's raw data to an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) site on the Share tab of your CSV/Excel Export. To set this up start by creating a CSV/Excel Export and click Customize Report. On the Share tab scroll to the File Transfer Service Settings:
Host/IP - Specify your FTP Host IP address. The full file path must be specified, that is, it must contain the root directory and all other subdirectories in which a file or folder is contained.
Username and Password - Enter your Username and Password for the FTP site.
Remote Directory - If you wish to send this to a specific directory on your FTP site specify the path here.
File name - Specify the file name. We recommend appending the file extension .csv so that you can open the file in Excel. You can also use date variables as specified. Spaces are not supported in the file name.
Available date variables:
- %d - day
- %m - month
- %Y - year
- %s - seconds
- %i - minutes
- %H - hours (24-hour format)
