    Is it possible to create a report where results of a form are showed into style chart?

    Asked by hamradioweb on December 26, 2016 at 01:36 PM

    It's possible to create a report where several events (each one with its start and end date) resulting from a form are showed into a Gantt style chart ? Something like this DX&Contest monthly schedule that you see here: http://www.hamradioweb.org/forums/

    Many thanks in advance

    Hello Arturo,

    What could be the closest to what you showed in the URL is our Calendar report. Here is the guide on how to create such report: https://www.jotform.com/help/249-How-to-Create-a-Calendar-Report

    And it gives the report that looks like this:

    Hope it helps. 

    If you have any additional questions please let us know.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the answer. I have already tried the calendar report, it is not what I would like to do.  In a Gantt style chart we have a row in the upper side of the chart (or in the lower one) with all the days of the month (1-2-3-4-5-... and so on) and for each day we have a column with 20 cells, for example. In this way, we have 20 rows where we can add 20 events , each one with the start date and the end date. And for each event, we can use a different color and a different name. Now I'm using this chart created  with Excel , updated offline every month and then uploaded on the server:

     

    In the calendar report, instead, we can see only a dot for the event and only at the start or at the end date, and without name. It's a pity not to have a Gantt style chart for the report, because it is useful for many different things.

    Hello Arturo,

    I understand your request, but I'm not sure it is doable with current settings we have. All reporting possibilities you can check in this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/326-How-To-Create-Form-Reports-in-JotForm

    We can also submit a feature request to our backend team for a possible implementation of this feature if you wish.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!
