Update 7-27-19: Because this blog post was originally hosted on another domain, the images did not make it over. However, the instructions below should still explain fairly well how to do this. I will look at some external hard drives from back in 2010 and see if I can find the images.

Ok, so you are currently using Limesurvey, and you have assessment mode set up. But when a person finishes, you want to kick them to the external page of your choice. Unfortunately, limesurvey doesn’t have this option, but if your smart, there is a way around this limitation. Read on for the trick:

So it’s actually quite simple. All you need is a little bit of HTML knowhow. There is a code called html redirect, which when ran, basically kicks people to whatever page you want. In this case, I want to send people to a special coupon, based on their answers. Read on for the info.

To do this, I create the values and assessment like normal. But when I go to the assessment results:

Limesurvey, Step 1

I make sure to then click on the little lime logo at the top left hand corner:

Limesurvey, Step 2

This will full screen the page, but then it gives you quite a few more options, Including the Source option, which is what we’re looking for here, since we want to put some HTML code in the site.

Limesurvey step 3

Ok, now we can add HTML. The code you will be putting, is this html Redirect:

<meta HTTP-EQUIV=”REFRESH” content=”0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html”>

Obviously, replace the yourdomain with whatever site URL you want. This will make limesurvey kick the person to an external page. It will look something like this:

Limesurvey step 4

The person will see the text above the html for a few seconds, so let them know that they are being redirected, in case their connection is slow.
