    Visual reports - Live data

    Asked by sklayman on August 04, 2016 at 09:06 AM

    In case I create a visual report and share its link, is it being updated by later submissions, or includes only data submitted by time of creation?


    In case it's not being update, what is the best way to achieve my needs? 

    Duplicate current visual report which will capture new data?

    I believe all online reports will automatically be updated (you or your user needs to refresh the page though). Here's a guide on how to use the Visual Report builder: https://www.jotform.com/help/187-How-to-Create-a-Visual-Report-with-Your-Form-Submissions 

    Here's a sample form: https://form.jotform.com/62164802411951 

    Here's my visual report: https://www.jotform.com/report/62164865424055 

    Try making test submissions on my form link, at the same time, check if the data on my visual report changes.

    I hope that helps.
