    Are visual reports updated automatically as new submissions are made?

    Asked by Ethan  on June 23, 2015 at 03:24 PM

    Once I embed a survey on my Wordpress site, are visual reports be embedded in my website and update automatically as responses are received?

    Also, can jotforms be used for "member areas"? I have a Wordpress website, and I have a members area and need specific forms placed for that specif member. 


    Thank you!

    No Ethan, you would need to refresh the page to see the change in the visual reports page. So each time you visit the page it will get the latest data, but leaving the page opened and without doing any form of refresh on it, the page will stay as it is, no matter if there were any submissions or not.

    Now since we can only have one question per thread I have moved your other question to a new thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/595115 where we will be answering it shortly.

    Hi Ben, thanks! Oh, yes, that is what I meant I guess. I don't expect the data to actually be shown in real time updates. If a person on my website refreshes and if there is new data, and it is shown once someone refreshes that is perfectly fine.

    Yes, in that case it will work just as you wish Ethan :)

    You are welcome.

    Just to mention, you could also add some code to your website to have it refreshed at specific time if needed, but as mentioned, it requires any form of refresh to be made to load the latest date and show it.
