List Questions

To view a list of your questions, click List questions. A list of survey questions will be displayed in a table with quick action buttons in the last column.

For more details, read our wiki page about this option.

List Question Groups

To view a list of your survey question groups, click List question groups. All groups are displayed in a table.

For more details read the following wiki page.

Reorder questions and question groups

To get an overview on the current overall structure of your survey, click on the Reorder questions/question groups button. It allows you to reorder questions and question groups if you are unhappy with the current order.

For further details, check our wiki page about this option.

Survey participants

You may want to invite only a specific group of people to participate in your survey to better keep track of who has completed the survey and who hasn't, and ensure that each person can participate only once. To do this, click on Survey participants and start to add only those persons that you wish to answer to your survey.

For a more in-depth presentation of this functionality, access the following link.


A quota is used to set a limit on responses from defined groups of people on an active survey. Some common attributes used in defining quotas are things like gender, age, race, province/state. A quota can be added by clicking on the Add new quota button located in the right part of the window.

For further details, access the following link on quotas and their usage.


LimeSurvey contains a feature that allows the survey administrator to create survey "assessments" for his or her respondents - even for multilingual surveys. Assessments are rules which evaluate the responses to a survey immediately after it is submitted, displaying text blocks to the survey participant (based on that evaluation).

For further details on its usage, check our wiki page about it.

Survey permissions

In some cases, the administrator might not want to give to a user (e.g., a translator) global permissions with which he can access more than one survey. That is why the survey permissions panel was created - to facilitate the allocation of permissions to different users without the need of using the global system of permissions. If you want to learn more about global permissions and survey permissions, access the following wiki section.

For more details on survey permissions and their usage, click on the following link.

Email templates

The email templates are used to quickly send personalized invitations, reminders, confirmations, and registrations emails to your respondents (from the survey participants table). You can also edit the standard basic (or detailed) admin notifications that are sent to the survey administrator(s).

For more information, access the wiki section dedicated to email templates.

Panel integration

You can set up from this tab which additional URL parameters will be accepted by your survey (these parameters will be attached to the start URL of the survey).

For further details, see the wiki section on panel integration.


This panel lets you manage files (pictures and media files) that were uploaded in the HTML Editor.

For further details, check our wiki section on how to use external resources in your survey.
