Limesurvey front-end plugins enhance the survey taking process. They add additional features or special question layouts which are not existing at Limesurvey.
Some of these Limesurvey plugins allow triggering a new feature once a user submits a response. That way data sets could be adjusted or enhanced silently at the background. An example is anonymizing a data set by removing the token on submit.
Other front-end plugins provide an advanced question layout. Since the possibilities for adjusting existing Limesurvey question types are limited, one can use our plugins to add additional features. Placing the “other” free text option at a certain position within the set of answer options is a typical use case.
Limesurvey front-end plugins also allow querying the database at survey runtime. This makes it possible to load additional information into a survey page or to disable certain items/questions depending on already exist responses.
