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.

Definitely more PROS than CONS!

Unique to Limesurvey:
- Easy to use
- Can be installed on own server
- Runs on open source SW
- Huge community
- Strong team of developers
- Support (forum!!!!)
- Javascript integration
- Plugin
- QA file

Missing:
- When exporting responses, no matter the format (CSV, SPSS, STATA, R...), if you select ALL RESPONSES, it should automatically export also a variable with the "level" of completation of the questionnaire ("COMPLETED", "STARTED BUT NOT COMPLETED)
- The survey code should be alphanumeric, not only numeric (it would help surfing though the survey in MYSQL)...
- The possibility to automatically manage two e-mail address in the token table and choose which (first or second) use for invitations/reminders
- A "Numerical form" type question, joining more numerical inputs, each one with a DIFFERENT range of values (e.g. a question asking for duration: days per month with range 1-13 and months with range 1-12)
- Improved user management (e.g. possibility to disable a user without deleting, to set a date or an interval of validity of the access to the system for an user or group of users)
- A stable 2.50 release...

I think whole is in DB, but no "GUI" to see it.

Ok... I was expecting (dreaming) something more or less like this :(
(Not so detailed but with all major actions done: survey creation, removal, active, desactive, etc.)

An extra security setting may be welcomed when using LS for db data entry

Like we already have:
"[inactive] survey preview only for administration users"
to have also (ideally at survey level):
" [active] survey taking only for administration users"
