LimeSurvey allows users to quickly create intuitive, powerful, online question-and-answer surveys that can work for tens to thousands of participants without much effort.  The survey software itself is self-guiding for the respondents who are participating.  This manual is thus focused at how to install the application, administer the installation, and support survey creators, administrators and report generation users alike.

To get an overview of the vast range of question types, look at Question types.

There has been a big ramp-up in development the last few years leading to many new features and changes.  Make sure to upgrade to the latest version to make use of the capabilities highlighted here.

Look to the far right for the main chapters to the manual.  Start with the chapter appropriate for you and navigate using the arrow buttons at the top of each page Button-structure-navigation.png through the many sections of each chapter.  Otherwise, scroll down further to see the complete table of contents here and go directly to the topic you are interested in.

Still having trouble finding what you want?  Don't forget the general search box, our General FAQ and Workarounds list, and to look in our discussion forums.

Remember that LimeSurvey is an open-source, free software application.  See something missing or incorrect?  Then help us fix it. This documentation is a Wiki that can be edited by you or anyone else.  Or donate to help support the core development group trying to make a difference.
