Basic users can view all projects in the entire system. They have access to download any of the files within projects they have been assigned. In order to download files, select the checkbox next to the file you wish to obtain. You may browse the files either by submission order or by filename. Submission order will list the submissions made and the files included in each upload. Next, select whether you would like to include the directories in the zip. The original path to the uploaded will be included into the zip if this option is checked. Then click “Download Files”.

Users can also publicly release a set of files via a link. First, select which files will be included in the published set. Next, select whether the files in the set should be updated to the latest version. This means if the files you select to be distributed have a newer version at the time the link is accessed, the file you selected will be replaced with its latest version. Next, select whether the original directories should be included in the distribution. Click “Get Public Link” to obtain the link to the published set of files.
