Data Integrity

General

The Check data integrity function checks the consistency and the redundancy of data. It can be accessed from Configuration.


Data consistency check

Looks for possible errors that might exist between the response tables and survey tables or between the token list and the CPDB.

Data redundancy check

If you deactivate a survey, the token tables, the response tables etc., will not be automatically deleted. They will get stored in archived tables. If you do not need them anymore, use the Check data integrity function and select the "leftovers" you wish to delete:
