📖 Getting Started With Labfront Guide

In Part 4, we'll cover how to:
  • Download your data

How to download your data

To download data, you'll first need to sign in to Labfront. Then from your Workspace, choose a Live project. Click download icon Download Data on the top right of the dashboard  This will generate a single zip file to download which contains all of the data available for this project including tasks, surveys, and physiological data from participants' wearables from the start of your study.


While it will be available in later versions of Labfront, there is no way to filter the data collection process by the time period in this current Labfront version. Each time you click the Download Data button, the sync time will increase slightly (a consequence of the quantity of data downloaded increasing). 

Data is only available for Live projects and with invited participants who have signed in through the Labfront Companion app and are contributing data by completing tasks, questionnaires, or providing physiological data from their wearable. 
To ensure that participants have successfully signed in to your project, please check the Participants section on the Dashboard and make sure that you have at least 1 participant signed in.  For each participant, you can also check that the Invite Code is Used and the Status is Joined.  
Invite Status



Data Download ZIP updates roughly every 6 hours. If you don't see the most recent data in the download, it'll be available in the next update.
