    Cumulative number does not add up in the Report

    Asked by johnsnowinc on June 12, 2014 at 04:30 PM
    I was looking for! I'm running a campaign where people are logging the number of pages read, toward a total pages read goal. I'd like to display, in live time, the cumulative number of pages read on the submission form.

    I was able to create a report of the pages read, but that doesn't add them up - yet your example has done that for multiple fields for fashiongirl! Can you please help me figure out how to do this for my 1 field of "Pages Read"?

    Thank you!

    I see that you have only this form http://www.jotform.us/form/41625512986157 

    I would like to inform you that the Visual Report will only work on the following field types

    Drop Down

    Radio Button

    Check Box

    Star Rating

    Scale Rating





    Your form only have Textboxes, so it is not applicable to use the Visual Report for that.

    How about using JotPoll App Report http://apps.jotform.com/app/jotpoll instead

    its an alternative report that can work on your form.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Jonathan! I tried the JotPoll App Report, and they are also unable to do anything with the data input through text boxes. It seems this is not possible.

    If you have any other suggestions, please let me know!

    Thanks for your help.

    You can use our Visual Report to accomplish what you need, all you need to do is to change your text box by a Number field:

    Results on report:

    That way your form users will still have the capability to enter the number of pages they have read:

    Here is my cloned form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41635628202955

    My report: https://www.jotform.com/report/41635315816050

    Inform us if you need further assistance with this query.
