Offline Use

I need to be able to have respondent fill out the questionnaire off-line on a PC laptop in a setting in which there will be no internet access.
Is this likely to be a problem?

Basically, I bought SNAP, which although very good in many ways requires a module for design and one for data entry on offline platforms. It gets pretty pricey at that point.

I would have more questions but this is the key one I think.
Many thanks,
Nick

Hey Nick,

I think it will be easier just installing LS in a local server using for example XAMPP or MAMP, depending on your OS. Both are very good.
At the end with VV files, you can export and import all LS results.

I personally use MAMP with total satisfaction.

Good luck!

We also have a one-click installer which can be used for a USB stick. The whole WAMPP server plus Limesurvey will be installed on a USB stick and when you have gathered all your data you can put each stick into a certain PC and export data and merge it later on as explained above.

This is interesting. So you are saying you can run the application and web server on a USB. I would have thought it was too slow.
If it is possible and convenient I'd be interested in exploring this. One goal of this from my perspective is to provide a tool with some templates that can be used in developing country settings and distributed without charge.
Making it easy to distribute and implement will be a huge help.
If you have a link to this 'one click' package I'd be very interested.
Best,
Nick

Hi Mazi.
This USB as server (x171ls190plus) will be working on which OS?..
Any idea that will work with iPAD?..

Many thanks

I like this solution and I'd like to use something similar. Do you have such a quick install tool for WAMPP + Limesurvey 2.00? That would make my work easier.

There is a new Limesurvey Android app called "OfflineSurveys" which allows using any Limesurvey survey offline: www.offlinesurveys.com/
