Show results on a quiz form

    Asked on February 17, 2020 at 05:45 AM



    I want to create a card form layout quiz form based on a specific, previously gathered survey results. Is it possible to show the previously gathered test-group answers immediately after the user chooses his answer (below the question, on the same card)?


    Quick example

    QUESTION 1: What is your favourite fruit?

    a: Apple 

    b: Strawberry

    c: Orange

    The user answers, then pre-saved results are immediately shown below the question:

    Thank you, and here are the answers of our test group:

    66% Apple

    24% Strawberry

    10% Orange


    Thanks for your help!

    You can use the JotPoll app to a POLL result. Please see this guide on How-to-Make-a-Poll-using-JotForm. You should finish building the form before creating a Poll report.

    The poll will generate a URL, so please keep it.

    Next, add an iFrame Embed widget to your form and use the generated poll URL as the FRAME URL.


    Please note that the current submission will only be added to the POLL result when it is successfully submitted. So while the user is filling out the form, he's entry is not yet included in the said report. Only the previous submissions are included.

    I have created a demo form based on the requirement you mentioned to better illustrate the idea. Please see this link:

    Thank you, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for. 


    The poll answer should not be related at all to this particular form.


    I would like to show answers of a completely different, closed survey, that was previously conducted (last year). That old survey had the same questions as this one. So the current user can compare their results to this previously done survey.

    If that would be the case, then I suggest using the "old form" in creating the Jotpoll report.

    Thank you!

    And is this solution going to work for the cards form? I would like to display the answers from the "old form" after each question. The flow would be like this:

    question - "old form" results - question - "old form" results - question - "old form" results...

    I would be optimal if the question and the "old form" results would be on the same card.

    What I'm looking to achieve is a poll similar to the one here on this page under the name of DAS HEUTIGE THEMA

    As long as you have generated the URL for that form in JotPoll, you should should see the answers of the selected field that you want to show in the Poll.

    It may not be exactly the same as the Poll on this page as card layout will only display one question per page.

    Try generating a Poll for old form and place that on the form where you want the poll to show using the iframe embed widget as suggested by my colleague above.

    Let us know how it goes.
