We have recently coded a custom export script which can be called using a certain link. At that link you can adjust the survey ID so it can be used for several surveys and within the script you can define the export format that should be used.
The script creates a simple "download responses" link the user can click and then the download starts.
That link can also be embedded e.g. at the confirmation or admin email.

Dont we have any method in remote control api to read whole survey data of a specific respondent?

Such a function exists: "export_responses()" can use a from ID to ID condition.

Glad to see finally a simple solution for response automated export, where can we find this script?

This was custom coded for a customer back then so I can't share any code details. But using the Limesurvey API it should not be too difficult to develop something like that.

If there is a certain demand we may be able to re-code the custom script to provide a generic solution, maybe as a plugin.
If anyone is interested in this please let me know and share which Limesurvey version you are using.

I think automated responses export is quit useful in case of responses data collect/analyse by a third application, this could be an important interface between LS and backend applications.
I'm actually trying to integrate every survey response automatically into another information system (pdf format required), i'm not familiar with api dev, could you please provide some code exemples or references for this case ?
LS version: 2.06
