Missing participants when downloading data

Hi everyone,

the lab that I work in is currently running an online experiment and it is my job to do weekly backup copies of the experimental data.

When I downloaded the files over the last couple weeks, I noticed that sometimes, participants get lost in the downloads. For example, certain participants are included in the backup from 3 weeks ago, that are no longer included in the downloads from this week.

Does anybody have an idea, what the problem could be and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hey! How do you download the data?

Hi, thanks for the fast response! To download the results, I am using the “Download results” button from Pavlovia.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kind regards,
Daniel Urban

try maybe downloading the whole directory from Gitlab?

Chiming in with @agleontyev; in the dashboard there are two ways you can specify that data is stored: in the file system or in a database. Could indeed be that this switched at some point?

Hi, How exactly do can you change how data is stored in the dashboard?
