Labels via API

Hi there,

I am not an IT expert and have a question: I use API to connect Kobo with an excel file on my server which works well to automatically download the data. However, it downloads only the values and I would prefer to have the labels instead (e.g. for column headers or choice questions). Anyone knows if it is possibel to get the labels and if so, how it works?

Thanks in advance!
