General

This page shows a visual overview of all available question types and it is meant as a starting point to get to detailed information about every question type.

By the way, the LimeSurvey download package includes a sample survey which includes all question types. You'll find it in your /docs/demosurveys-Directory - import it and test it out!

Hint: In LimeSurvey a survey consists of question groups which contain one or more question. So you have to create a question group first before you can add questions to your survey.

Subquestions

The concept of subquestions is new to LimeSurvey version 1.90 or later. Although subquestions existed before that in LimeSurvey they were named differently and were mostly covered by Label sets. With LimeSurvey 1.90 they are now clearly visible, definable, and logically structured.

An explanation of subquestions

Usually a question only has answers. But there are certain question types (like the Array question type) which are basically a subset of questions where each subquestion can be answered by the survey participant (often by using a predefined scale of answer options).

A more complex example is the question type 'Array of texts' where the respondent has to enter values for combinations. In that case the value entered by the respondent is the 'answer' and the two scales on the array are two scales of subquestions.

Styling questions

It is possible to generally edit the question layout/design by using CSS. You can find more information at #Styling_questions_with_CSS|styling questions with CSS

Question types

Arrays

The Array question type (sometimes referred to as Array Multi Flexible) further extends the List question type. Using this question type a matrix can be displayed in which columns are represented by subquestion and the same answer options are shown for each row. The text of the question can be either a specific question or a description.

In terms of output there is no difference in how responses are stored compared to question type 'List(Radio). In both cases the given answer is stored in its separate column in the result table.

Beside the most flexible array types 'Array', 'Array (Text)' and 'Array (Numbers)' LimeSurvey also supports a number of convenience array types which have predefined answer options.
