    Hi! The visual report builder is very cool in many ways, and I love being able to switch between different types of charts. However... It is incredibly clunky to use with a complex survey. A few questions:
    1. Is there a way to populate a report with all the data fields from a form? DO I really have to drag them one by one onto the report, locate the chart properly and then select the correct question? Can't there be an easy way to just select all the questions I want to display in a report and generate the charts?

    2. Is there no way to clone a report from one form and apply it to another form? We have a series of performance evaluation surveys, and I need to have the same exact report for each person, each one has their own form. DO I really have to go and build the whole report for each form separately...???

    3. I've loved and used jotform for years with different businesses and accounts, but the visual reporting function has not changed in ages. years. When will you bring it up to speed and make it as cool as the rest of your features...?

    4. I just signed up for a year long membership, but I have to tell you that this lack of easy visual reporting is making my teammates want to switch to a different form builder. I love you guys, and would hate to cancel, but this may be a deal-breaker... :-(.
    THANK YOU,
    Deepika

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to generate multiple charts at once. You will have to do it one by one. I will forward this to our developers as a feature request but we cannot promise if this will get implemented or give an ETA on this. This is the way that the builder was created and it would require big changes.

    Again, unfortunately, it is not possible to clone a report from one form to another, even when the form questions are the same. Usually, the form questions are not the same.
    You can duplicate a report on the same form only.

    In the past recent years, our developers have worked mostly on the Form Builder and recently in JotForm Cards. I am not sure if there are future plans for updating the Visual Builder.

    I understand that you might have a hard time creating charts for each question in each form. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
