Hello,

My organization (public library) is thinking of using LimeSurvey as our Online Registration System. We would like to have members of the public self-register for events and programs. Are there any other organizations that use LimeSurvey for event registration? Any examples?

And also, some further questions about LimeSurvey's capabilities - is LimeSurvey able to:

1) support waitlists
2) produce confirmation forms, registrant lists & email reminders
3) support online payment
4) handle recurrent & multi-part events

Thanks you very much in advance!!!

Hi Helen,

Although, as you can tell from my number of posts, I am a bit of a LimeSurvey fan, I don't think it's the best tool for event registration/management. It is designed to collect data, not interact on an on-going basis with users.

Cheers,
Tony Partner

Hi Tony, thank you for your response. I had an an inkling that LimeSurvey wouldn't be a perfect tool for course registration - glad to have my suspicions confirmed.Cheers, Helen

You're welcome but keep us in mind if you need to do a satisfaction survey of your course participants or something similar :)

I am implementing Limesurvey for a host of uses. While it is not "perfect", the right process design works well for certain applications. As a second generation system engineer with 30+ years of a number of designed/constructed/delivered systems, I would recommend persons looking at Limesurvey for various applications to consider their processes before concluding "fit". Some might disagree, but what I can say is, I've implemente a platform that is using Limesurvey for surveys, event registration, ordering paraphernalia (linked to PayPal), etc. And future expanded uses are on the dartboard.

THANKS TO THE LIMESURVEY TEAM!
