Limitation on the number of questions per survey

Dear community,

Is there a limit to the number of questions per survey? I have a survey with 6,000 questions on it. Can KoboToolobox accommodate it?

I have tried 3,000 questions, but it can’t be deployed.


You may have to face this issue when your form is too large or complex. This is because, if your form is too large or complex, it may time out before deployment completes. FYI, the web server only allows each request to take 120 seconds.

Is there any improvement on this limitation recently?

@ChenChen, there is no change in the system.

Thank you @Kal_Lam for your response.
How should we deal with that issue when we have a thousand of variables to be surveyed?

@ChenChen, the best approach would be to split the survey into multiple projects the system can support.

Based on your experience, how many variables should be included per project?
Could you help share the discussion on how to manage survey using split survey form?
Thank you.

@ChenChen, there is no hard and fast rule on this, as it depends on various factors such as the complexity of the syntax, the list of choices, and so on.

Thank you for your response.
It seems like it depends on the time we deploy the form if we have a lot of variables to be surveyed.
Is there any issue on data error when we download the data to analyze?

There should not be any issue.
