    I was hoping for some help quicker than this. When I try to use the Visual tool to create a graph all it does is create a graph that has to do with the first survey question. How do I create graphs of the other questions? This seems to be such a basic question and need. If you have multiple questions and you want to be able to graph the responses for each question how the hell can you do that? I don't get it and I'm a pretty smart guy.

    I'm sorry. I'm not sure if I understood your concern correctly.

    If you want to create graphs for each question, you can just add a new chart and click the properties icon and change the source of the data there.

    Here's a screencast in my end:

    You can see under "Chart Data", you can choose the question you want to display in a chart or graph. 

    Now if what you want is to display multiple questions in one graph or chart, then that might not be possible as each questions hold different answers. I also suggest checking this guide if you have not yet: https://www.jotform.com/help/187-How-to-Create-a-Visual-Report-with-Your-Form-Submissions

    If you are a more advance user and you can create graphs and charts with more complexity in spreadsheet tools, then I suggest integrating your form to Google Spreadsheet. Here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/228-How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Google-Spreadsheet. After integrating it, the submission data will automatically be added in the newly created spreadsheet. From there, you can easily reference the data on a new sheet and create graphs or charts based on those data. You can then save, print or import your charts/graphs as mentioned in this article: https://support.google.com/docs/answer/1047436?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en

    I also suggest avoid opening multiple threads with the same questions, it would be best to focus on one thread on a specific concern. In this case, you can reply on this thread by directly visiting this link: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1098318.

    I hope that helps. Let us know if I misunderstood your concern.
