Add an external user in your Central Participants Database


The Central Participants Database (CPDB) is the complete list of respondents that you can use for your surveys. It automatically contains all the valid users registered on your business account.

Eventually, you may need to forward a specific survey even to an external member.

If you want to include the external participant and be able to quickly re-use it in future, Access the LimeSurvey dashboard and through the navbar go to Configuration > Users Central participant management.
