When creating a project, a project owner can decide to allow users to anonymously download release files. This is a setting you can alter in the description of your project while editing it.
By enabling this option, a user who is not logged in and attempting to download a release file will have to fill in a popup to decide whether he wants to:
provide a short feedback (the user will be forwarded to the login / registration page. After login, he will be redirected to the release page)
remain anonymous (the download starts immediately).
To allow anonymous download, tick the checkbox “Allow anonymous download” while filling the form to propose your project. When your project is created, you can further edit this setting by editing your project (?).
By default, “Allow anonymous download” is disabled. Why? The platform sends out a post-download survey to registered users who have downloaded an asset/software release to capture their feedback.
