I'd like to make a survey with the following functioning.

The survey has 4 sets of questions (S1…S4) and each set of questions should be presented in a certain schedule. Or it could be 4 surveys.

I need 4 groups of subjects (persons). Each group has a different schedule.

For example:
- group A see the S1 day D, S2 day D+2, S3 day D+7, S4 day D+14
- group B see the S1 day D, S2 day D+3, S3 day D+8, S4 day D+14

Could I automatically group subjects with LimeSurvey?
Could I automatically schedule set of question or surveys?
Could the scheduling be relative to the day of the subject subscription?
Could I associate a scheduling with a group?
Could I condition the accessibility of a planned set of question to the fulfillment of the previous set?

Let see this from a subject view. A person P subscribe to my survey. At subscription P is automatically added to the group C. The calendar is shown to P and as S1 in planned for the first day, it is available and accessible for P. S2, S3, S4 are not accessible for P. If S1 is completed and it is D+4, S2 becomes available for P…

Am I clear enough in me description?

There is no in build feature for this. At the next Limesurvey version there will be a "Central Participants Database" which can be used for such panels.
You'll still have to do some coding to do the schedule according to your needs.
