    How to calculate and analyze answers on a vote form

    Asked by Arcsight on April 27, 2015 at 06:00 PM
    By the way Mike, I haven't checked but I will be looking for statistics on how many people choose certain options. Last week I saw the Jotpoll app, do you have any other option or that is the option you guys offer at this moment.

    We have a Visual Report tool with charts, but the problem is that it does not calculate vote points together. It will show how many times each value (1 vote point, 2 vote points, 3 vote points, etc.) is added/selected by the form users.

    In your case with assigned points, we will need to calculate a 'total votes' value for each candidate, and then create a chart based on calculated results.

    The form data can be downloaded in Excel format, so we can locally manage it with Microsoft Excel or other software.

    Here is an example with Microsoft Excel and Mike's form from the other thread.

    Similar results can be achieved with a Google Spreadsheets Integration.
