Surveys Report

I do this report for understand better the software we need to do surveys…

  • How to evaluate:

I want to remove 4 Freedoms because I dont put any Not Free software to compare, and with public control version

  • Requirements: [Software requiments]
  • Comparisons with similar:
  • Pros:
  • Cont:
  • Rating:[]
    • LAST UPDATE: [ Check the last update to know the project its alive and well developed. ]
    • PLUGINS/MODULES: [ Check if has module structure what allow improve in good way. ]
    • DECENTRALIZED: [ Check if can be federate. ]
    • DISTRIBUTED: [ Check if p2p software. ]
    • CONSUMPTION: [ Comparation in energy Consumption. ]
    • KISS: [ Keep It Simple Stupid - One tool for one purpose ]
    • DOCUMENTATION: [ If there good documentation with public access ]
    • CONTROL VERSION: [ Check if have a control system with almost 3 versions develop-testing-production ]
    • USABILITY: [We need to test for real evalue, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usability_testing for that if we have time we should do it but otherwise we need to trust on people to test before.]
  • How we will use it:

Then after the method I try to start with this software:

1.- Tellform 2.- Limesurvey 3.- QuickSurvey 4.- SandForms


  • Requirements: [Software requiments] Docker server looks like the best option
    • nodejs
    • redis
    • MongoDB
    • grunt
  • Comparisons with similar:
  • Pros:
    • Multi-Language Support
    • 11 possible question types
    • Editable start and end pages
    • Export Submissions to XLS, JSON or CSV
    • Embeddable Forms
    • Looks like to install with docker
  • Cont:
    • Docker is not so good compatible with our server.
    • Not provide in fairkom or sandcats
  • Rating:[5/9]

In addition to having 11 different types of surveys, TellForm has pretty good analytics attached to its surveys. You can easily customize the look and feel of your surveys, and the application's interface is simple and clean.

  • How we will use it: I think we need a special server for this installation and if we don't need very special survey, we can use quicksurvey or sandforms, but maybe is good to create in our server this option for some case very formal.

  • Requirements:
  • php
  • mysql or postgreSQL
  • Comparisons with similar:
  • Pros:
    • Multi-Language Support +82 languages
    • Mature project, from 2003
    • +20 possible question types
    • WYSIWYG html, easy editor
    • Allow images and videos
    • Templates
    • Export data csv, excel, pdf
    • W3C support, accesibily and html rules ok
  • Cont:
    • Very comercial right now
    • Not installed in fairkom but we can use a space into our servers or maybe estraperlo can provide us in for few faircoins
  • Rating:[6/9]

LimeSurvey also lets you customize your surveys with your own JavaScript, photos, and videos, and even by editing your survey's HTML directly. And all that is only scratching the surface of its features.

You can install LimeSurvey on your own server, or get a hosted plan that will set you back a few hundred euros a year (although there is a free option too).

  • How we will use it: I think this is more complete and with more experience but maybe is too mucho for our propose, really I think is very personal decision and take some of experience to do the best survey possible and more friendly

demo, create: https://oasis.sandstorm.io/grain/jRCXHf2CtRBPrgweF5A4yT

  • Requirements: [Software requiments] This software is installed like an app in sandtorm.io and fairkom and for like surveys are temporal maybe we can not have to install or review the tecnical issues… I go directly on rating things
  • * Comparisons with similar:
  • Pros:
    • Is installed on fairkom
    • Is so simply put the question in the type and type
    • 7 types of questions
  • Cont:
    • Not multilenguage
    • Is outdate, nobody support more
  • Rating:[3/9]
    • LAST UPDATE: [22-12-2017 OUT OF DATE, No longer maintained)]
    • PLUGINS/MODULES: [ Check if has module structure what allow improve in good way. ]
    • DECENTRALIZED: [ Check if can be federate. ]
    • DISTRIBUTED: [ Check if p2p software. ]
    • CONSUMPTION: [ Comparation in energy Consumption. ]
    • KISS: [ Keep It Simple Stupid - One tool for one purpose ]
    • DOCUMENTATION: [ If there good documentation with public access ]
    • CONTROL VERSION: [ Check if have a control system with almost 3 versions develop-testing-production ]
    • USABILITY:
    • this article is good (https://opensource.com/article/17/2/tools-online-surveys-polls) For many of us, tools like LimeSurvey and JD Esurvey are overkill. We just want a quick and dirty way to gather opinions or feedback. That's where Quick Survey comes in.

Quick Survey only lets you create question-and-answer or multiple choice list surveys. You add your questions or create your list, then publish it and share the URL. You can add as many items to your survey as you need to, and the responses appear on Quick Survey's admin page. You can download the results of your surveys as a CSV file, too.

  • How we will use it: Is simple and the results is not very nice but for easy surveys or forms I think works perfectly

  • Requirements: [Software requiments] This software is installed like an app in sandtorm.io and for like surveys are temporal maybe we can not have to install or review the tecnical issues… I go directly on rating things

  • How we will use it:

Is very very basic, but for something very simple can be usefull
