Hi all!!

I am really newbie and just installed this!!

First of all, LimeSurvey seems to be very nice!! And there is a lot of learning to do...

However I found this just because I needed to find survey software where I can limit question times and I can also calculate thems. There is not so many...

Just couple of minutes ago I managed my first pilot but it seems that there is time limitation possibility only free text questions? If I choose multiple choice -> I cannot find time limitations?

Also is there a way to limit total time of answering? And after time is up then survey is closing...

At Limesurvey 2 the "list radio" question type will also support the timings feature. For all other question types, this isn't implemented yet.

Hmm... I'd really need countdown timer for a multiple choice questions... :blush:

But it seems that there no other way than wait...

And... even if I choose List (dropdown or radio) I cannot see timing setting. I see those setting only free text choices.

Well, if you really need it, you can probably do something with Javascript.

I'm not a LimeSurvey GmbH member. I answer at the LimeSurvey forum in my spare time. No support via private message.

LOL :laugh: "Need" is an ideal term of this matter ;)

If that is not "built-in" then I don't need it SO much. Then I have to wait... Java... well it is not my thing to do (=can't do, sorry).

Anyway, like I mentioned before!! Excellent application!!!

The timer feature for the list radio question type was sponsored by one of our users and you can do this as well for the multiple choice question if you really need it.

We do all this in our free time, which is limited, so don't expect this to be added too soon.
