Checkbox Survey Software License Cancellation

VIU's subscription to Checkbox will end on April 1, 2021.

VIU's Office of University Planning and Analysis has administered licenses to the VIU community for the purposes of conducting surveys for more than 10 years. Users of Checkbox may be found in any VIU department, and action may be needed to prevent data loss. Access to survey instrument files and survey data stored in Checkbox may be permanently lost at any time after cancellation of VIU's Checkbox subscription on April 1, 2021. To prevent loss of data, users should download their survey files and data prior to March 15, 2021.


OUPA has transitioned to the Qualtrics survey platform, which is being used for institutional surveys. OUPA will continue to administer licenses for the LimeSurveys survey platform for the use of the VIU community in conducting non-institutional surveys (e.g., surveys for instructional purposes, service area feedback, event feedback, etc.). VIU employees will continue to have access to LimeSurveys as a "self serve" surveying tool.

Next step: Checkbox users are advised to login to Checkbox (https://survey.viu.ca), download their data and download or print survey instruments, and delete Checkbox files that they do not need.

Users in need of assistance regarding this change are requested to contact Brandon Nelson by email at brandon.nelson@viu.ca.
