How to use Offline Surveys without the use of Sawtooth server/self hosting on lighthouse studio

I am trying to explore how to conduct offline surveys for ACBC/CBC on lighthouse studio. I know that offline surveys are available on lighthouse studio but will need a server in order to sync the survey data.
In the previous SSI web software if we wanted to conduct offline survey, we had an application called "Sawtooth Software SSI Web CAPI Module" (which would not require any server). This application had an option "Get copy of data" which would export the offline survey's data and this data would be accumulated in the SSI web software in the next step.
In short, do we have any method to export the offline survey data captured in the current "Offline surveys" application instead of syncing it to the server?

Dear User,

We only have sync option to server in current version of lighthouse studio which is actually a better option then get copy of data.

If you need traditional approach, then you have to use v8 and below.

In earlier format, we had fear of data theft, security, interviewer used to fudge data in file, had to merge  files.

Thanks for Sawtooth team for upgrading to sync feature in v9 and above.
