    I cannot edit fields to display Text Box on Visual Report

    Asked by MMREIT on May 26, 2014 at 03:09 PM

    I have a report I want to generate that would graph the top twenty responses to my Ticketing System.  

    The field I want to key in "Concern"  but it is not selectable.

    Let me please inform you, that the Text Box input field is not considered as a selectable type. Due to this, it is not currently possible to select the Text Box field as a data field in Visual Reports.

    I have attached a feature request ticket to add the Text Box fields into reports, but I can not provide any ETA for when it will be implemented.

    Here is a list of supported form fields in Visual Reports:

    - Drop Down
    - Radio Button
    - Check Box
    - Star Rating
    - Scale Rating
    - Grading
    - Slider
    - Matrix (partially, based on used input type)

    We will let you know if we have any updates on this.

    Thanks Michael. As usual, it is more important to understand the needs of
    my user (before they understand those requirements themselves). I
    restructures my inputs to adapt. It works great.
