Hey guys,
I'm new to LimeSurvey and want to raise the occupation in my survey. I would like to generate an autofill question which automatically autocomplete the occupation based on the isco08 list ( www.statistik.at/kdb/downloads/pdf/OE-IS..._20170113_032830.pdf ). I hav absolutly no idea how I could achive that.

Thanks for the help

There are quite a few topics in the forum for workarounds on how to create autocomplete questions. Which posts did you already check? What are the specific questions? What did you not understand?

Did you read the link that I have posted?

It says that you need to upload it to the template folder.

Sure, I've read that. Let me tell you step by step what I did. I have really no idea if that's correct:
- Opened the template manager
- Create new template
- selected /javascript-data/scripts/template.js
- selected my .csv data
- pressed "upload"
--> resulting in an error "not allowed to upload this file"

The csv contains 2 colums (1. ID 2. ISCO08 Name)

Using LS:
Survey properties - General Settings - Resources

Browse uploaded resources

Upload


Then you find your file in:
www.myserver.com/limesurvey/upload/surveys/ [surveyID]/files/[filename.csv]

If you upload by a ftp client like Filezilla, you can select any directory or folder you like.

well it only says "Once the CSV file is in place,"
I just dont understand it.
It also says that an autocomplete wigdet is included but I cant even find that one.
As a beginner it's hard to find the correct information.
In another post I've read something about a ftp connection but I have no idea how to access the lime survey surver. so many issues

I read that you need to upload it via FTP into the template folder, but I did also just a quick scan of the page. Maybe also read the information for previous versions, because some detail might be omitted because they think you know it already.

ya but I guess the ftp connection doesnt work with the free version. I also want to upload a plugin and in another post a user mentioned that I would need the professional version to get access.

I assume that when you talk about the "free version" you refer to the hosted version then?

Because the free community edition (the one you install on your server) doesn't have that.

I don't know the limitation of the free hosted version, this is a service provided by the Limesurvey GmbH and I have no idea about this.

I didn't expect you would use the free hosted version, because for most cases I don't see how you can use this for much more than testing, with the limitations it has (n=25 responses per month).

ya it is the hosted one. I just test the survey here because my access is not activated yet for the professional version.

Well, if the free version doesn't have ftp access and the workaround needs upload via ftp and not the option that Joffm showed (not sure if this is also possible), then there is little you can do, besides maybe install the XAMPP version of Limesurvey on your computer, for testing purposes.
