"Good"

What do you like best?

What I like most is that it is free software, so thanks to this we can choose a unique personification ... It is more than just using a simple template. The function of creating a survey is the same as the others so there is no problem in getting lost when creating a survey as well as the collection of the data obtained, it is easy to read this data for a good analysis.

What do you dislike?

To have time in the market you need an android application or IOS that allows you to create a survey anywhere. The interface of the page must be updated since for new users it is a little complicated to learn from the environment. In addition, the personification of surveys by oneself sometimes is better than the packages offered by limesurvey ... They should improve that too and consider what else to offer in their packages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good idea to create open source surveys, very few pollsters include this. They are mostly templates that you can take to design a survey. Very well done, recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business use although I'm still testing it since it has multiple functions that make every day have to improve the environment of the surveys

"In love with Lime Survey"

What do you like best?

I really like how easy it is to set it up. The logic is great. Very easy to get results. The online manual is just incredible detailed and very well explained. I like the flexibility of options for questions and formats. Very simple to launch and manage. You can easily generate useful reports or data in spreadsheet format. One of the things i like the most is the ability to create custom designs, have been struggling for this with previous platforms. One more thing that I love is the functionality for the respondents to save an unfinished survey and come back later to finish it.

What do you dislike?

So once the survey is live and you need to edit something, that is challenging. The ways you can edit is very limited because the previous data can get deleted. Need to pay for good themes. Some question formats were a little confusing. Took some time master it. Very little analytical capability. We use Microsoft Excel to analyse the results of the surveys conducted. Took a while to get used to the user interface of it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Me and my team are really happy with the platform. It does what it says really well and their manual is really helpful if ever you get stuck somewhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is helping us understand our Target Audience much better. We are able to conduct psychological tests as well which is one of the key things we needed a survey platform.

What Survey solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Quick, easy and tasty like a ... lime"

What do you like best?

For a free and open source on-line application LimeSurvey is a POSITIVE surprise. It enables users to develop and publish on-line surveys with minimal hands-on training, using a web interface. The easy response collection process and straightforward data export facilities are handy to run quick surveys and analyze results in record time time.

What do you dislike?

A bit tedious to personalize surveys as it requires css expertise. Too bad that an library of ready-made templates is not made available. Last but not least, LimeSurvey lacks integrated analytics and requires to use external modules (Excel, Tableau, Watson Analytics ..) for that matter.

Recommendations to others considering the product

LimeSurvey has made trmedous progress in the last year by modernizing the outside lokk of the platform and its support is very responsive by email. However, product documentation is lagging behind. Dommage !

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Research on citizen feedback on online public services.

"Really Good Program"

What do you like best?

Simple and useful. Fast and functional! There are no issues of difficulty using. A great ability to create custom designs. Easy and quick availability of professional support from Limesurvey Partners program.

There are a number of available question types so it can vary based on topic. It is easy to launch and manage and easy to generate useful reports or data in spreadsheet format.

What do you dislike?

Difficulty installing and challenging to edit. I wish the serve update wasn't paid, but I I understand that you need to make money on the service. On the other hand, I did not like that it is limited in the ways to edit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it and see the benefits

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just began using this so I am still seeing all of the functions. There are faster survey time to live and more question types. It is becoming quick to learn, and is meeting our needs.

"Limesurvey is a sound solution"

What do you like best?

The ability to have non-technical staff get up to speed quickly to create advanced surveys. The thorough summary/statistics on submitted survey data is very user friendly. The 'Comfort Update' features makes a daunting task a breeze!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes finding resolutions in the forums to some questions I have about issues is tedious.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our university uses Limesurvey to collect alumni information for tacking and college advancement purposes. The ability for the staff users to quickly get survey statistics about demographic and surveyed user interest areas helps them to more accurately target gifting opportunities.

"Great Tool for Survey"

What do you like best?

Limesurvey is easy to install, for simple projects, it is also easy to manage. It allows many customizations and is also suitable for medium-large surveys.

What do you dislike?

For some advanced features, it is not yet mature. There are still a lot of unresolved bugs and has limits on the maximum number of attributes per survey, which depend on the limit of the maximum number of columns that can be managed by the dbms that uses (pg or mysql).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Limesurvey has limits on the maximum number of questions that can be entered in a single survey.

If the survey is not too complex, limesurvey is the perfect product!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my company we have implemented a detection process through limesurvey. The data collected, afterwards, were processed and used to make business decisions.

"Open source and online!"

What do you like best?

Basically it's a nearly seamless transition from other survey-making sites. The data obtained is relatively easy to understand and isn't too difficult to export. The online manual is very thorough. Most importantly, it's open source and online!

What do you dislike?

This is just for collecting data as it has very little analytical capabilities. Data will need to be exported (such as to Microsoft Excel) for analysis and to meaningfully understand the results, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It would be really nice to have a library of ready-made templates to speed things up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's free, so it's worth a try!

"Great tool for create surveys "

What do you like best?

This is a good tool for create surveys, it's all made online , you can create a survey with your admin account , it's very easy to use and totally user friendly , you don't need to know about codes or whatever to create your surveys then you just give the user url and you can star collecting data for what you need to know.

It's , with the premium edition you can get also templates for make your surveys more attractive.

It's an open source so you can modify it if you want , and use it for commercial purpose.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that for with the free account you can just get 25 responses, which is almost nothing if you want to do it in a large scale.

But you can upgrade or pay for more responses .

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am not a pro for in surveys but if you want an easy to use software for surveys this is a good option .

A recommendation can be : try to know before what kind of result you want , like if you want to extend the survey to hundreds of peoples so maybe there are choices that will cost you less then Lime.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used some times for my art projects or events, for example if i wish to bring some change to my project or to organize events that needs a to know what my contacts prefer.

"My office uses LimeSurvey to collect client statistics"

What do you like best?

I like how easy and user friendly it is. It's very easy to go in and edit the surveys. It's reliable and I feel comfortable sending our links out to clients.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is a bit glitchy. Clients will complain that the survey goes back to the start page at the end, and often come to me asking me to confirm their submissions. Being able to confirm that their work is complete would be helpful

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They are helping us collect data and feedback that help us better serve our clients with leadership solutions
