    Graph result shown after form submission

    Asked by cgomolak on August 16, 2016 at 02:03 PM

    I need help to find a way to take multiple answers from an individual's survey and create a chart from the answers. I want the chart to be in the survey as an image that adjusts depending on the answers inputted. For example, if they input...

    #1). 4

    #2). 6

    #3). 1

    #4). 5

    #5). 1

    #6.) 4

    I want the final product to look like the image below.

     

    I don't want to use the generate report feature as I want this chart to be view able by the person taking the assessment at the end of the survey.

    The only way that would allow you to do something like that would be to actually set up the form to redirect to a page on your website that would show the graph.

    At that point you would be able to send the values that you have and use them to draw the graph.

    Unfortunately it would not be possible to do the same on the form or thank you page within the form builder itself.

    You can see how you can send the values to your page on these guides:

    This is exactly what I need also!! Are you planning to create that without the users having to learn programming?

    At this time, I do not know of any plans to include a chart such as the above.  We do have several other visual charts and reports that can be created from form data:

    Its not the graph in itself that is important to me, but the ability to be able to send back the results of an individual survey in a graph to the person that submitted the form.

    The visual report shows all the answers. I just want to send back their own responses, based on calculated fields.

    Unfortunately, you cannot filter visual reports to show only one submission.

    However, you might be able to do this by exporting your submissions to an Excel spreadsheet and creating your charts for each submission using Excel.

    I agree, but I was hoping to automate the process. :-)

    Unfortunately, I wasn'the able to do this within Jotform. What I did was export the user'submitted info to a hosted website site and then had lost of programming. I used the chart maker amcharts and was able to make a good results page. 

    I wish there were an easier way integrated with Jotform. It seems like such a simple feature but it'seems not here. If you need any help, feel free to respond to this thread and I would be happy to help.

    As of this time there is no available chart similar to what you shared on your original message.

    You will really have to generate that custom chart outside the Form Builder for now.

    I also agree that the the resolution suggested by David is one way to do it simpler and quicker.

    However, you might be able to do this by exporting your submissions to an Excel spreadsheet and creating your charts for each submission using Excel.

    You can create the chart/graph using the Graph tool in Excel or other spreadsheet like google docs.

    You can watch an example on this youtube video. :-)

    Hope this help. Let us know how we can be of further assistance.
