I checked the guide and searched the forum on this issue to no avail.

Does anyone know how to have it email you the results when the survey taker hits submit?


I'm also having an issue creating one question per page, if that's even possible?


Thanks in advanced! I got this thing installed and working without any problems other than these two small issues. GREAT Product!

1. Have a look at general survey settings -> notification & data manegement -> "Send basic admin notification email to" (docs.limesurvey.org/Creating+a+new+surve..._amp_data_management)

2. For showing a survey questin by question simply change the survey mode at general survey settings -> presentation -> "format" (docs.limesurvey.org/Creating+a+new+surve...ation_amp_navigation)

Thanks for the shortcuts. I must have missed these, sorry. There is a ton of stuff to cover in the documentation. =P

The fact that it's open source is what caught my attention. Much respect to you guys for doing this project. It looks great and I'm currently figuring out how to adjust the templates for a more custom design of my survey.

*EDIT* - I found the answer in the documentation. I see that you can set Tokens.

I already added the email address where you mentioned in the above comments. I ran a test survey to see if the response was emailed properly and it never was delivered. I'm still working on getting the email kink worked out. This product is awesome so far though.

As for the email issue:

1. Please switch on debug mode by adding the following line to your config.php file:
$debug = '1';

Are there any additional errors reported on top of the page when submitting a survey?

2. Which email method did you set at global settings -> email?

3. Do you run Limesurvey locally or on your ISP's web server?

I just switched the $debug to value 1 like you mentioned.

I selected the default PHP method for email.
I created a VM on my network to run LimeSurvey. We are using the survey for internal use only and the email address is internal as well.

Is there a mail server installed on your vmware?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Nope. We have an exchange server on our network. Can we use that to send the mail, or do we need a mail server on the VM?

Well, if your exchange server offers SMTP this is probably the best solution. So you just need to use the option SMTP. As far as I know the php mail only works, when you have a mail server running and configured correctly on your server, which would have to be in your vm I guess.
