Il existe deux façons de clôturer un questionnaire :

Important.png  Attention : We strongly recommend using the expiry option to close a survey. The explanation is stated below.


You can manually expire the survey if you edit the survey details and set an Expiry date/time:

Alternatively, when deactivating the survey (by clicking the stop this survey button), an option to expire the survey is provided, which performs the same function:

Expiry and Deactivation - Survey.png

If you decide to expire your survey:

  • No results are lost
  • No respondent information is lost
  • Change of questions, groups, and parameters is limited
  • An expired survey is not accessible to participants (they only see a message that the survey has expired)
  • It's possible to perform statistics on responses inside LimeSurvey

To make the survey available to your participants again, change or remove the expiration date from the publication & access panel.


→ Cliquez sur "Désactiver ce questionnaire" dans le panneau d'administration.

  • Tous les résultats sont "perdus" (tout du moins, vous ne pourrez plus y accèder depuis LimeSurvey)
  • Toutes les informations sur les participants sont perdues
  • Toutes les questions, les groupes et les paramètres redeviennent éditables
  • Un questionnaire désactivé est accessible (vous verrez toutes ses questions mais ne pourrez pas sauver de données)

(2) Click the Deactivate survey button

  • All results are lost (you cannot access them via the LimeSurvey user interface).
  • All participant information is lost.
  • The deactivated survey is not accessible to the participants (a message will be displayed stating that they are not permitted to see this survey).
  • All questions, groups, and parameters are editable again.
  • We recommend that you export your responses before using this option.

Date limite de réponse

→ Editez les propriétés du questionnaire et choisissez une "Date limite de réponse".

  • Les résultats ne sont pas perdus
  • Aucune information sur les participants n'est perdue
  • Les changements dans les questions, les groupes et les paramètres sont limités
  • Un questionnaire expiré n'est plus accessible (vous voyez simplement un message comme quoi le questionnaire est expiré)

Par conséquent, il est recommandé d'utiliser une date limite de réponse (=date d'expiration).

  1. Activate your survey again.
  2. Select Responses from the survey toolbar.
  3. Click Import and select the "Import answers from a deactivated survey table" menu entry.
  4. Choose your source table.
  5. Click Import located in the upper-right part of the screen.

Important.png  Warning : You can import all of the old responses that are compatible with your current survey. Compatibility is determined by comparing column types and names, the ID field being always ignored. Using type coercion may cause serious issues with your data; use it with care or not at all if possible.

Currently, LimeSurvey detects and handles the following changes:

  • Question is moved to another group (result is imported correctly).
  • Question is removed from target (result is ignored).
  • Question is added to target (result is set to database default value).
