Algemeen

Labelsets zijn lijsten, waarbij elke lijst een setje codes heeft die gebruikt kunnen worden als antwoord of als subvraag. In tegenstelling tot eerdere versies worden labelsets alleen maar geplaatst in de vraag bij het toevoegen. Een wijziging in de labelset wordt dus niet achteraf verwerkt bij de vragen waarin deze gebruikt is.

Important.png
Attentie : Een labelset moet in dezelfde taal geschreven worden als de enquête waarin hij verwerkt wordt. Labelsets in een andere taal kunnen niet worden gebruikt in de enquête.

You may find below a label set example to help you better grasp the concept. Click here if you want to go straight to the label set management functions of LimeSurvey.

Een voorbeeld. Stel je wilt een 7-punts schaal als antwoord gebruiken. Hiervoor kun je een labelset gebruiken.

Code Label
1 Niet nuttig
2 2
3 3
4 Nuttig
5 5
6 6
7 Zeer nuttig

Click on the Create or import new label set(s) button located in the upper-left corner of the page. You can either create a new label set from scratch or import it from another source:

  • New label set: The label set(s) has (have) to be manually created.
    • Set Name: Each new label set has to be given a name.
    • Languages: Every label set must be specified for the language it's used for. You can choose as many languages from the menu as you want.

Je moet een code, een beoordelingswaarde en een titel invullen.

Labels table.png

Daarna druk je op het plus-teken Add label.png om een label toe te voegen. Het is mogelijk een plaatje of iets anders te gebruiken: zet hiervoor de HTML-code in de beschrijving. Voorbeeld:

<img border="0" src="http://www.yourdomain.at/pics/pic.gif">

Note 64x64 bubble lime.png Read also our wiki on assessments. The column is ignored if you set all the values to 0.

To ease the editing process of the HTML-code, use the embedded HTML editor of LimeSurvey, which is located at the end of the label-text box (click on the green pen button ->0.85px).

Note 64x64 bubble lime.png For a short introduction on the HTML editor utilized by LimeSurvey, check the following page.

Snel toevoegen

Another possibility to quickly introduce labels is to use the Quick add... button. When you click it, a window will pop out. It works under the following form: Code ; Title.

0.8px

You can either replace or add labels. If you click Replace, all the preexisting labels will be deleted and replaced by the ones entered by you. If you click Add, the new labels will be added into the label set (the preexisting ones not being affected).

0.8px

The Code is automatically added if new entrances are created. Therefore, you can type in only the title of the labels which will automatically be assigned a code:

0.8px
0.8px

The assessment values cannot be edited/entered via this option - it has to be changed manually from the list of labels.

Important.png
Attention : If you wish to translate labels by using the Quick add... function, you need to add the translation on the same line(s) and be separated by a semicolon.

</syntaxhighlight>

In order to delete a label, click on the red trash button (0.85px) located under the 'Action' column.

Verplaatsen label

Om een label te verplaatsen, klik op het groene icoon (0.85px) onder de kolom 'Positie' en verplaats de label.

Taal toevoegen

To add a new language, Create or import new label set(s) -> Languages -> select the languages you wish to add.

To start translating the labels into another language, select the language in which you would like to translate the labels to from the upper part of the matrix. Labels switch language.png Labels 4lang ro.png

Elke label heeft een code, een beoordelingswaarde en een titel. Alleen de titel kan voor elke taaloptie gewijzigd worden. De volgorde van de talen is vast en altijd alfabetisch.

In our case, the language from where the label codes and assessment values can be changed is English. Only the label description can be edited when the Romanian tab is selected - which represents the corresponding Romanian label translation of the English label.

Once you are done with the changes, do not forget to click on the 'Save changes' button located in the upper-right part of the screen.

Before reading further, take a look at our wiki on how to create surveys since it is already assumed in the examples from below that you have already created your survey.


For a better understanding of the label sets option, let's take a look at the following examples:

{Box|The screenshots used below are from LimeSurvey 3.0, the interface being slightly different from the last LimeSurvey 2.xx release.}

I want to use a label set as an answer list for one question

Assuming that the label set and survey are created:

  • Go to the structure of the survey and create a question group - About LimeSurvey.
CreateQuestionGroup.png
  • Click on the Structure tab and then on the newly created question group (About LimeSurvey in our case). Look for group quick actions and choose Add new question to group:
AddNewQuestiontoGroup.png
  • Type in the code and text of the question.
  • In order to use a label set as a set of answers, pick up the right type of question that can make use of label sets. The array question type is selected in our example:
ArrayQuestionTypeLabelSets.png
  • Save the question to add it into your question group.
  • Once created, you will have to add subquestions and answers:
EditSubquestionsandAnswerOptions.png
Bear in mind that not all question types ask for subquestions and/or answers!


  • Add at least one subquestion:
ArraySubquestions.png
  • Add answer options. Predefined label sets... option will be used:
EditAnswerOptions.png
  • Select the label set you want to use:
0.7px

The result should look like this:

  • Save & preview the question:

I want to use labels in another language as answers

Before reading this example:
  1. Create a label set and select the other languages you would like to use in your survey. For further details, read our wiki on how to translate a label set in other languages.
  2. Edit your survey (Settings -> General Settings) by adding the additional languages you want to translate to. For more details on how to create a survey, read the following wiki.

Assuming that the label set and survey are created:

  • Create a question that can make use of label sets (e.g. array question type):
Important.png
Attention : Do not forget to select the language you want to translate to from the languages toolbar!
  • Because the array question type is selected, both the subquestions and answers need to be translated.
EditSubquestionsandAnswerOptions.png
  • Translate the subquestions. Do not forget to select the right language tab for translation:
ExampleAddLanguageSubquestions.png
  • Translate the answers. However, because we use predefined label sets, select the right language tab to add the translated label set as answer options:
AvailableLabelSetsRomanian.png
ExampleEditAnswerOptionsRomanian.png
  • Save & Preview the survey:
PreviewAddRomanianLabels.png

I want to use emoticons instead of label text

In order to use emoticons (or any other graphics) , you have to use the embedded HTML editor when creating labels.

Assuming that the survey is created:

GreenPenButtonHTMLLabels.png
InlineMode1.PNG

The HTML editor offers you a more comprehensive view on how different options can be used to enhance your survey. It is not necessary to have HTML knowledge because the toolbar is self-explaining (for further details you can either hover the mouse over the options or click on that option for more details). By using such an editor, you can also add (for example) smileys, images and/or videos that are either hosted online or on your server. In this example. three smileys have been added:

SmileysLabelsExample.png
  • Create a question that can make use of label sets as predefined answers (e.g. array question type):
New Question Label Sets Emoticons.png
  • Edit the subquestions and the answer options
EditSubquestionsandAnswerOptions.png
  • Set predefined labels as answer options.
SmileysLabelsExample.png
  • Save and preview the question:

I want to import a label set and use it as a subquestion list

Assuming that the survey is created:

Optional: Access LimeSurvey templates database and download the one you wish to use - .lsl file format (Australian states in our example).
  • Go to Configuration and click on Manage label sets button.
  • Click on Create or import new label set(s) (in the upper-left side of the screen) -> Import label set(s). Browse your computer and select the .lsl file (the label set format).
ImportaNewLabel.png
  • Now that the label set was uploaded, create a question that requires the usage of subquestions (array question types).
  • Edit subquestions.
EditSubquestionsandAnswerOptions.png
  • Load the imported label set:
