Because the reports I can find in the program are fairly useless to me, I need a custom report that shows the results from my election poll in the format I can use. Is there an add-on that creates custom reports? Is there any way to do this in any case?

Thanks.

Export Data and use external software is the way to go. Most of the time the data needs to be checked and cleaned too. So don't expect AddOns in the reporting section. I find the report tool quite powerful. What is missing?

We also have been searching a good report generator, since our needs were complicated we decided to write one ourselves.

One of the results, based on a Limesurvey questionnaire (in Dutch, sorry) is here:
boomenbos.toolsforresearch.com/tfr/ishc.php?savedid=61

The software we have written for this is not open source.

Very nice. Looks easy, but hard work. What is the technical approach.

Direct query of Limesurvey database?
Or export of Limesurvey results and import in your webbased reporting tool?

I wonder if LS 2.05 would allow you to offer a reporting addon for the commercial space?

BTW: Added "Kleine Stappen" to my very small collection of dutch words ;-)

We did this using javascript, based on querying the limesurvey database, so real time reports are also possible. We also used this for a survey with now about 28.000 complete responses.

Also see: demo.gewoongoedwerkmeter.nl, which generates a report at the end (after many mandatory questions about how employees rate their employer). The demo prefix makes it easy to participate without registering and without storing the demo-answers in the actual database.

It was done on basis of version 1.92, we are now planning the migration to 2.05 this summer.

Limesurvey is great, but left us amazed at certain moments. We are now developing a fully responsive theme design.
