Greetings all.

My evaluation of LimeSurvey is that it can more than handle the survey requirements of our small(ish) college.

My question is how best to organize the survey list, and if indeed there is a way to do so. I anticipate generating hundreds of surveys per semester.

If anyone would share their approach or thoughts, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

I would suggest using separate HTML/PHP page(s) to list the surveys. It would be far easier (and more future-proof) than hacking the LimeSurvey code.

Thanks for your reply, but I'm not approaching this from the development angle, meaning I don't want to hack the code or create a new module, etc. I was just wondering if there is an existing way to organize the survey list, out of the box. If there is, it doesn't seem obvious.

No, there is no out-of-the-box solution. I'm not suggesting you hack the LimeSurvey code but simply that you create a HTML/PHP page outside of LimeSurvey with links to all of your active surveys. It would not be updated automatically but would display them as you like.

How would you prefer to organize the surveys? A little more background information would be helpful.

I would like to see them organized by school department, e.g., business, science, math, etc. I guess one way to do it is by putting the department code at the beginning of the survey name (BUAD - Survey 1; BUAD - Survey 2, etc.).

Yes, that is the approach I'd recommend.
