By integrating the open source survey tool LimeSurvey into the Community-Box, the first step towards the new Community-Box CSI (community + survey + ideas competition) was realized.
Thanks to the integration it became possible for community operators to address surveys directly to the participants and define within the community platform which participants would be allowed to take part in the survey.
For creating new surveys the familiar user interface of LimeSurvey is available to community managers.
After completion, the results of the survey can be exported in different formats such as Excel, PDF, SPSS, or shown as an online report.
Thanks to the integration of LimeSurvey into the Community-Box CSI, community operators have the option of gathering quantitative data in addition to qualitative data, making a huge difference especially for market research communities.
