Customising your data access request form

You can customise the form that applicants are required to fill in when requesting access to your datasets.

  • Select the questions you want on your form from our question bank. You can turn questions on/off, but not change the wording of a question.
  • Add custom guidance to each question. Guidance can contain links to pages or documents.
  • Add custom guidance on each page.

We are working on a new feature which will allow you to customise the form yourself. For now, please get in touch with HDR UK via to request any changes.

If you need a question which is not on our question bank, get in touch. We are constantly reviewing the form and making improvements based on feedback form custodians and researchers.
