What is LimeSurvey?

LimeSurvey is a free and open-source online survey application used to create a wide range of high-quality online surveys and questionnaires. The web server-based software gives users the ability to develop and publish online surveys and collect responses without doing any programming. 

With LimeSurvey, you can learn more about people, their interests and opinions, as well as the reasons behind their decisions. The versatile tool allows users to ask 28 different types of questions and is available in more than 80 languages. 

The software is open-source and completely free to use, averaging around 10,000 monthly downloads. It was written in PHP based on a MySQL, PostgreSQL, or MSSQL database, and distributed under the GNU General Public License. 

LimeSurvey offers solutions for customer surveys, market researchers, universities, and students. 

In addition to its free plans, LimeSurvey also offers premium versions of the software. The paid versions include things like more responses, storage, access, and features making them a good choice for companies or universities who want to use the software on a larger scale. 

We will explore the different plans and what they include below.
