What feature is unique to Limesurvey? What feature is missing the most? And what other tools do you use?
Name only one feature!

Unique: Community (Sorry, no technical features I know seems to be unique to Limesurvey)
Most Missing: List building (use answers as a list, where items can be removed, randomized, added, manipulated like Arrays in programming languages)
Other tools: Sawtooth Software, Toolbook

Unique:
* yes, this community, which has helped me out several times.
* But also: flexibility for developers (although I cannot compare very well, since LimeSurvey is the only platform that I use with this intensity)
* Price

Missing:
* reporting capacities (could there be a deal with another good open source reporting tool?)
* solid integration with R
* good user administration (backend users)

Unique to Limesurvey:
- Can be installed on own server
- Can be modified and extended as see fit
- Expression Manager (there might be similar features in other tools, but I find it quite powerful, relatively easy to use)
- Tpartner and his workarounds
- ...

Missing:
- Easy and simple "screen outs"
- More flexible quotas (based on various question responses, etc.)
- Loops
- Relevance equations for answers
- Implementation of tpartners workarounds into core
- ...

NO, in plugin.

Because question attribute bis really complex and have more option than really needed.

Not Unique to LimeSUrvey but most important:
- GPL : free like a speech.

Assistance on LimeSurvey forum and LimeSurvey core development are on my free time.
I'm not a LimeSurvey GmbH member, professional service on demand (or search sondages pro).
An error happen ? Before make a new topic : remind the Debug mode .

My little list with multiple items per line to ceate the impression it complies with the one-feature-rule-only of jelo:
  • Unique feature: GPL (hear, hear), Expression Manager & community
  • Missing: creating graphs using EM & reporting tools
  • Other tools used: PSPP, R, some GNU/Linux distro

Missing:
#Ability to get quota counts in survey.
#Implementation of screen-outs without hacks.
#Question loops
#Multiple Other specify in any question without hacks
#Able to freeze desired answer options while others randomize.
#Page objects so that we can place more than one question on a page even in question by question layout.
#Column relevance in Arrays (numbers , texts)
#Improvements in documentation specially EM.
#We are not able to use programming language loops (for,while,do while) in equation type question.
#custom question layout designer www.limesurvey.org/community-services/fo...tion-layout-designer

Unique and more important than all above is its community and opensource.

Limesurvey supports R export, it can be enabled at the Plugin settings.

To my knowledge that should work pretty well, or did you already use it and miss certain features?

What are you talking about? Grouping surveys at the survey list into sections like "Customer Feedback Surveys", "360° Surveys", "Test Surveys"?

Denis has recently coded a plugin to mark surveys as a kind of "master survey" which allows to create copies from. Only users with special rights are allowed to edit such "master surveys"/drafts.
- Download: github.com/SondagesPro/surveysModel
- Info: manual.limesurvey.org/Available_third_pa...lugins#Other_plugins
Mark surveys as "Survey Model/Template" : Allow admins to mark a survey as "Survey Model", a kind of "master survey" or "survey template" which only users with appropriate rights are allowed to edit. The common user is only allowed to create copies based on such a survey template.

Yes that's what I mean... Requiere a way to define & set categiories for surveys. Some (admin) users may be interested by survey types, other by departments, other by courses etc.

I agree with Ben. I have an installation, where I try to save good solutions that I find on the forum or that I developed myself, so I don't have so search each time in the forum (often solutions get lost as well).

However, I try to have one survey per "problem" and it is getting quite complicated. At the moment I put codes in the sample like [sample], [playground], etc. so that I have a certain overview. But it would be great if we could have "folders". Because most of the time I don't need to see those sample and playground surveys. I will have a look at Denis' plugin, if this helps in any way.
