This will take you to the Download Settings page where you will prepare your data download. 

Data download options

When you download your data, you have the freedom to select the participants and timeframe that you want to include. This provides you with easier access and allows for more efficient analysis of your data.

  1. Participants: By default, all participants are included in the download. However, you have the option to choose specific participants to include or exclude from the download.

  2. Timeframe: You have the option to download data from the last 7 or 30 days if you only need the most recent data. Alternatively, you can choose to download all of your data or select a specific time period to download.


Labfront users on the Testing Plan are limited to a 30-day timeframe for data downloads. You can upgrade to a paid plan to download data without restrictions.

Why can't I see any participants' data?

One of the most common reasons for this issue is that your participants are not yet connected to your project. 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.  For more information, we recommend reading our article on adding participants

Do I need to keep the Labfront web app open while my zip is being prepared?
Yes, once the process has begun, you should remain on the site until the download is complete. 
I can't download a ZIP file from my work computer. What should I do?
In this case, we recommend you ask your IT department how to allow ZIP file extraction on your work computer. Alternatively, you can also download on another computer or device that allows for ZIP downloads as we can only provide ZIP files for data downloads. 
Can I see a sample of the downloadable data format?
