Quick start guide - LimeSurvey 3.0+/44/en

From LimeSurvey Manual

You will find the following on the Create survey page:

  • Survey Title: Type in your survey title here. This is a required field. The title of the survey can be changed later.
  • Basic Language This is the language used in the survey. The settings of the survey can be modified later to support additional languages.
  • Sample Question: This feature is disabled by default. You can enable it to add a question group and question examples to your survey.
  • End URL: If users finish filling out the questionnaire, you have the option to redirect them to another page. If you wish to redirect them, place the URL into the field and activate the "automatically load URL" option that is located under the Presentation & navigation tab.
  • URL Description: A brief "End URL" description can be added if the user is re-directed to another webpage not related to the survey. It may be helpful to add a note (explaining the reason for the redirection to the respective URL).
  • Date Format: This option is important when you want to record timestamps together with the survey participants' answers. You can click it to display a drop-down list of date formats. Choose the date format that your survey respondents will recognize (remember that different dates are used across the world).
  • Decimal Format: Two options are available: dot (.) and comma (,). Select the one that is most widely used in the region where your survey will be conducted (e.g., US vs Germany).
  • Description: A short description of the survey can be added here.
  • Welcome Message: The survey participants will receive the welcome message that is entered here.
  • End Message: Enter the message that participants will see once they submit their answers to the questionnaire (when the survey is complete).
