Hi,

I have written an illusion of control paradigm on my Laptop using Inquisit Lab. I want to use this paradigm in an online study using Inquisit Web.
The paradigm itself runs fine, both on my computer and online.
My question is whether there is a way to store the data from all participants who are taking the study online into one single file. Currently Inquisit Web stores data from every single participant individually.
On my laptop, I have managed to sucessfully store data from several participants into one file using the following script:

<data>
/ columns = (date, time, subject, trialcode, response, correct, latency)
/ file = "IOC_alldatatest.iqdat"
/ encrypt = false
/ separatefiles = false
/ userid = "subject"
</data>

However, this code does not work in Inquisit Web.
Changing the file to
/ file = "/IOC_alldatatest"
while leaving everything else in there the same results in the script running again, but it does not save the data into one file, but into seperate files for all participants, again. Is there a way to store all data into one file?

I have attached the whole script that saves everything into one file on my computer, in case it is needed.

Thank you in advance for your help.

No, data files are stored as separate data files when using Inquisit Web. However, when you download your data, those files can be / are automatically merged when you select multiple data files for download.
