Note: The live webinar has already occurred. You can watch the video recording here.

With the release of SurveyCTO 2.60, we’ve replaced SurveyCTO Sync with SurveyCTO Desktop, the most flexible and powerful way to centralize your work, export your data, manage projects, and work offline. 

Join us in our third webinar on September 25, 2019 at 1 PM UTC / 9 AM ET to learn how to make the most of SurveyCTO Desktop. Once installed, Desktop will allow you to synchronize data between your computer and one or more SurveyCTO servers, as well as between your computer and other computers or mobile devices. It also provides a wide range of data export formats and options; powerful tools for working offline; and convenient access to the server console, Support Center, and product documentation.

A member of our expert support team will lead a 20-minute presentation and then open the discussion to any of your questions. If you miss the live webinar, you can watch the recording that we’ll post in our video library

What you’ll learn

In this webinar, you’ll learn how Desktop improves upon SurveyCTO Sync and adds new functionality, including enhanced performance, multiple server login capabilities, separate export settings and local storage for different projects, offline product documentation, and quick access to the server console and Support Center. 

You’ll also receive step-by-step guidance on how to do the following: 

  • Set up a single desktop: Download the desktop client, add multiple servers, save shortcuts, configure export settings and storage location, view sync history, and access offline tools.
  • Add multiple desktops: Create desktops for different projects with their own storage locations, export folders, and custom settings.  
  • Use time-saving settings: Automatically purge data, exclude attachments to speed up exports or overcome poor connections, export in CSV and SPSS format options, export based on data quality review results, easily access support from the product documentation and Support Center, and much more.

SurveyCTO 2.60 also introduces other new features and improvements that enhance the look, functionality, and accessibility of your SurveyCTO experience, no matter how you use the platform. See the 2.60 video overview and release notes for more information.
