Retrieve email id of respondent automatically

Is there any way to automatically retrieve the email id of the respondent in a self submission survey, if he/she is already signed in on the browser from where they are taking the survey.
Thanks a lot!

@shwetakalla08, did you mean if a user submits a data from Enketo (web form), you should be able to see/find his/her email id automatically? Correct me if I got you wrong.

Yes, that is what I meant. Is there any way to get that?

@shwetakalla08, this is not possible within the system. Maybe as a workaround, you could follow these approaches to identify the users:

  • You could have a dedicated variable that captures your desired user details, like the name, email id, etc.
  • If it’s a self-administered survey, you could provide your respondents a secret code while filling in the response that matches the code uploaded in the CSV. You could use the pull-data feature.

Thanks a lot @Kal_Lam . I will make use of one of these.
