New Remote Control Web Service Methods To Submit

5 years 10 months ago - 5 years 10 months ago #59283 by C9survey
I have been working with the Remote Control feature of Lime Survey to connect the survey tool to another administrative tool which allows me to import questions answers. It is far easier to work with JSON data in PHP for questions responses and it was more useful for me to get completed tokens as compared to incomplete token. After adding these features I also added the ability to only download token and answers after a specific date to limit the amount of data transfered to only new responses since an import date.

Since these are method currently running on my production server I would like to submit them to Lime Survey for consideration in your next release. The necessary files have been attached for your review. Maybe these methods will help other users looking to use a Web Service to import data.

I think your code can help me. This is what my need is.

I am building a client mobile app that will download questions from limesurvey, there is a web service method sGetFieldmap to get the questions, however I do not see any web service method that can submit answers back to lime survey. Hope your code can help?
