    Dynamically create graph charts from calculation values within the form

    Asked by vtsampazis on January 13, 2015 at 12:14 PM

    Hello, i'd like to ask you if there is a widget who creates graph charts using values which are generated from calculation fields.

    It will be a very good and spectacular option

    Thanks for input. It seems we do not have such tool yet. Although I know dynamic charts can be done but I think of it as a very complex one. Do you have any recommendations like which graph or chart framework? Or if you can provide examples, that would be great.

    I have known Google chart since then which might be a good one https://developers.google.com/chart/ but I think you can make an implementation on it via source code if you know JavaScript well.

    By the way, if you know about visual report builder (http://www.jotform.com/help/187-How-to-create-a-Visual-Reports-with-your-Form-Submissions) you can build charts there and use it on your form as a thank you URL, might be a good alternative.

    Hi  EltonCris,
    Since you have asked on a Framework - this would be something for Jotform: https://www.amcharts.com/javascript-charts/ I think that this would be a welcome improvement for the visual report builder.

    I would like to agree with vtsampazis because I am also looking for calculative charts of the submitted data. Thank you that you always working on jotform to make it better.

    Thank you @Sascha Reinhardt for sharing this information with us. Since this is not something that can be done with JotForm at the moment, you can consider the step proposed by colleague  EltonCris above.
