Survey form and subsequent displayed online real-time reportsAsked by Joel Tolmich on January 03, 2016 at 12:31 AM
The Voter will be asked to read a section within an online manuscript. We then want them to rate; on a scale from 0 to 10, how much they agree with what they read, and how much they think others would agree.
During their participation we will not ask their name, although we will ask for statistical information like age, zip code, income, own or rent, and the like. If there is a way to assign them an anonymous code, but allow me to track their IP address, and take only one response from one computer, I'd like to know more about how that would work.
The online, real-time tallies would then be presented as a Pari-mutuel Board of sorts. It would be nice if I could generate a transparent form, and then present both field and result in front of a custom designed background.
Mathematically, I will be displaying what percent of "X" number of participants voted a certain way. But in addition to that percent of participants, I'll graphically depict the socio-economic and demographics of those surveyed.
Can I do this with my existing or upgraded Jot Form account?
When it comes to the exact features you are asking about, yes, this should be possible with JotForm.

Whenever somebody submits a form, their IP address is automatically recorded within the submission.
You can assign a Unique ID to each submission: Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions. This number will not be visible by the user, and will ensure that you have a unique anonymous number for each submission.
You can limit form submissions to having only one submission from one IP address: How to Limit Submissions in a Form. The exact option you seem to be after is setting the Unique Submission limit to Strict Check - this allows only one submission per IP address.

When it comes to presenting your users with the results of other submissions that were made on the form, you may want to set up a form report to achieve this: How To Create Form Reports in JotForm.
The Visual Reports in particular allow you to have graphical representation of collected answers, in forms of charts: How to Create a Visual Report with your Form Submissions.
> Can I do this with my existing or upgraded Jot Form account?
All the features of JotForm are at your disposal, regardless of whether it is a paid or a free account. The only difference is in the number of submissions you are able to receive, storage space for uploaded files, and available sub users.
Please let us know if you need further clarifications, and please be noted that in order to avoid confusion by dealing with multiple topics in a single thread, we recommend opening a separate thread for each different question or issue you may have while setting it up.
