    Adding more fields to the visual report is not user-friendly

    Asked by MOLSouth on September 14, 2015 at 07:58 AM

    Why is your visual report form so non-user friendly? I need about 30 segments of a large application form analyzed for up to 200 responses and the template you provide only allows two segments to be shown. How does one add another 28 to this unfriendly template? You should make it easier, or even automatic the way adobe forms and google docs quickly generates data. The forms have been good for us so far, but this aspect is troubling. Think you can make your forms generate automatic data and then the consumer can pick and choose what he wants to utilize from the varied form questions? Help, please.

    I'm sorry that you feel that about our visual report. Indeed it adds 2 fields by default. The other fields must be manually added.

    In order to add more fields to the report you can select Chart/Grid/text grid, and drag and drop:

    1. Select properties

    2. Select the field, chart type and then select ok:

    You can see our guide for more details on how to use visual reports:

    I will forward a ticket to our developers so they can analyse the user-friendlyness of the visual report and make some changes, if they decide accordingly.

    If you need further assistance please let us know.

    I agree with this post.  These visual reports are horrible to build! I don't see why they can't be automatically generated, it is far too time consuming to do each individual question manually.  This is my biggest complaint about Jotform.
