This page is about extracting info per survey, e.g. for the presenter; for info per per participant see Generating Reports for LimeSurvey CPD Tracking.

This page explains how to extract feedback from LimeSurvey CPD Tracking so it can be provided to presenters, the physician in charge of a series of Rounds or to Section Heads.


When you extract data make sure your output remains anonymized before you provide it. There are many settings in LimeSurvey, and some might include information about who provided the comments. These must not be provided to presenters!


The person in charge of a session (usually the Section Head) will be given a summary of survey results two weeks after sessions.

To generate this summary:

  1. Find the survey on the survey list and click to open it
  2. Once in the survey click the Responses button, and then “Responses and Statistics”.
  3. Click the Statistics button (mid-way in banner)
  4. Under "Data Selection", switch "View summary of all available fields" to 'On'
  5. Under "Output format" choose PDF for a slightly "nicer" presentation, or Excel for something easier to work with further
  6. You can un-select items that you do not need for the report (ie if you just want to narrow down the report to just comments)
  7. Scroll back to the top and click the green "View statistics" button
  8. Ignore the looping "Please wait, loading data", it will keep going...
  9. Look at the download icon of your browser (different in different browsers...); when it's done, the downloaded file contains your feedback export
