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 on how to install the application, administer the installation, and support survey creators, administrators and report generation users alike.

There has been a big ramp-up in development within 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 of the manual. 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 (upper right corner of the wiki), our General FAQ and Workarounds list. If you are looking for community help, join our discussion forums and check the IRC channel.

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.
