What happens if I exceed my response volume?

What happens if I exceed my response volume?

Initially, we will send you a notice by email that your response volume is getting low - you can set this warning limit in your account settings after registering.

Please make sure your email address is always correct.

If your available Survey Response balance falls below zero, your participants will no longer be able to answer your survey(s) and we will send another email.

If you are using the FREE plan, your access to LimeSurvey will be locked. In that case, you will have to wait until the end of your month period for it to be unlocked automatically or buy a subscription plan.
