Is it possible to tag or categorize questions within Limesurvey?

For example, I have a survey with 3 questions.

The first question is about automobiles. I would like to tag it with the following information #automobile #Ford #Explorer

The second question is about clothes shopping. I would like to tag it with #shirt #polo #Macys #blue #retail #shopping

The third question is about a hamburger. I would like to tag it with #food #freshness #tasty

You get the idea.

Anyway, the purpose behind the question relates to overall question management, various reports on questions which might be used in multiple surveys, searching for previous questions, etc.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

There is no such functionality in Limesurvey.

I guess you need something like a question repository.

You would need a custom plugin for tagging. The plugin wouldn't be that complicated.
Still, the usage of the tags on reports and searching for questions may require an adhoc solution.

Thanks you. Yes, we know the management of the repository would be on us and are prepared to tackle that aspect. We are just trying to figure out the best way to get the information associated with the question.

Your idea of a plugin is interesting. We've written a few plugins but nothing that needed to store its interactions in the database. I will research that avenue but if you know of any reference material, I would appreciate the pointer.

Thanks again.
