I am a new user to LimeSurvey and wanted to get the community's input on use of the software for a specific purpose. At my organization, we are wanting staff to input data on engagement/outreach activities that they do throughout the year. So, for example, we would ask a staff member to select the number of activities they would like to submit data for; then they would need to select a type for each activity (e.g., site tour, presentation, workshop); and based on the type, they would be asked a different set of questions (i.e., branching needed). A staff member may want to submit new data to this form throughout the year. Based on your knowledge of the platform, would LimeSurvey be a useful tool for this type of data collection?

Some days ago I've prepared this sample survey in italian language: www.opensurvey.it/limesurvey/index.php/879151
In this sample I've supposed to have a max number of 5 activities, but this number coulb be greater.
If you need to propose many questions for each activities and type of activities, you could define many question groups many groups of questions for how many activities are, and show them only if the activitity is indicated at first question. Inside the question group od single activitiy you can also show only questions by tipology of activity.

Thanks, Ifanfoni. It seems that I can use the software for this type of staff reporting but I'm going to need to get much more familiar with the system to set it up correctly. As a new user, I think this type of development is more advanced than what I am able to do now. But you answered my question that it IS possible so thank you.

Yes, but it is not necessary to develop scripts for these "advanced" features. You find anything in the manual, also examples. The main arguments are: array filter, relevance, Expression Manager.
Besides you can study the Sample Census( www.limesurvey.org/downloads/category/13-surveys ), it is useful to understand how to implement a questionnaire with multiple sections (persons in that example, activities in your case).

Great! I will look more closely at those arguments and study the Sample Census. Thanks so much for providing some direction. As a new user, all the existing features can be a bit overwhelming so I appreciate the guidance.
