    Visual Graphing Data From Daily Ticket Totals

    Asked by sgstlc on September 30, 2015 at 02:56 PM



    I'm trying to make some graphs via my template "daily ticket totals". I'm trying to graph by "class" and by student name, ex" Jabion". However when I choose that in the visual report builder on the drop down menu, it tells me "no data". Can you help me fix this?

    I believe this is about the following form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/51384898372974

    If that is the form in question, the problem comes from the fact that you are using Text Box fields to collect the values for students. Text Boxes can be filled with any text, which means that usually their entries are more or less unique. Additionally, textual values can't be computed for the charts, so text fields don't show correctly in the charts.

    If you wish to have charts displaying the data for your students, you may want to collect student points through Number fields instead:

    Values from number fields can be used to create charts and graphs in the Visual Report Builder:

    I hope this helps.
