Roles and Permissions for Forms

A client has asked that one user has only access to the forms within Perch (not to delete or edit though, just get to the submitted data), which is fine as I can setup a role in Perch to achieve this however, if I only allow 'Access to forms' the user doesn't get access to the CSV download which is what that user needs access to. The CSV download only appears if I allow 'Configure Forms'? Is there a reason the CSV download option is excluded for a user who has 'Access to forms'?

There's not a particular reason, no, that's just the way it's been set up and no one has asked for anything different.

I'll log it.

Thanks Drew.

Sods law it's the one thing the client needs from the form submissions as they will use the CSV to import into a 3rd party system. The alternative is to write a script to connect to the database directly, convert JSON to CSV and download which is a bit like using a hammer to crack a nut :)
