NEW FEATURE: Summary Report

Dec 16, 2013 2:22 PM

Tags: #pdf #export #share #report #new_feature #summary_report

The rating scale wasn't the only feature in our July 22nd release. We rounded out our support for surveys by adding the "Summary Report" tab to all of your forms. The summary report contains a chart for each question in your form. The charts show how many and what percent of users picked each choice in a question. The cool thing about the summary report is that it is automatically generated for you - you don't need to do anything. The data in the summary report is updated in real time just like the View Response tab:

Mousing over a report tile shows an option button - when clicked you can see the customization options for the respective report tile:

You can show/hide the caption, percent, data count and footer. You can also change the chart type. The captions are completely editable so you can add you own custom title to each tile. You can also delete a tile by clicking the trash can icon.

And there are many ways to share your summary report: 1) Print it to paper; 2) Export to a PDF file; 3) Export all tiles to images that can be placed into your PowerPoint presentations; or 4) Use the share button at the bottom left corner to share it with your team.


Try it out and send us your feedback.

NOTE: In Japanese forms the "Save as PDF" or "Export as PDF" button is grey and is disabled, saving as PDF from the Summary Reports tab is not supported for Japanese forms

    Is it possible to also see the number of responses per colored bar in the summary report? For example, under Help Us Improve, 18 total people rated Accommodations by Very Unsatisfied, Unsatisfied, Neutral, etc.


    It'd be helpful to be able to see, in this view, the number of people who responded in each colored box. I made a mock-up example of this below--numbers are incorrect, but hopefully you get the picture.

    I have added a note above - "Save as PDF" (or Export as PDF) is disabled in Japanese forms, Saving the Summary Report as a PDF is not supported in Japanese.
