UPDATE: Jotform Reports have been vastly improved and renamed as Jotform Report Builder, which was launched in July 2020.
Jotform Reports are great when you need to:
- Share form response data with your clients or colleagues in a format such as Excel,
- Create great looking and printable reports with charts,
- Export your data in any format,
- Add form responses on your web site,
- Bookmark your form responses.
We have been receiving many requests to improve them. As a result we have made numerous improvements.
Password Protection for Reports
You can now protect your public reports with password protection. Share your reports with your clients and colleagues.
When you enable the password protection feature for a report, as an additional security precaution your report data will also be transmitted securely with a 256 bit High-grade SSL encryption.
Improved Visual Reports
Visual Reports are great way to create printable reports with charts in them. You can customize them completely and add things like your logo or text on your reports.
It is now possible to share your visual reports. You can send its URL to your clients or colleagues or you can embed them in your site.
Another improvement on visual reports is the default report. Previously when you create a report you started with a completely empty screen. On our user tests we found out that this is causing confusion and causes users to leave the Visual Report Builder. So, instead of an empty screen, a default visual report is created with the title of your form and some charts/grids for your form responses. We hope that this will increase the usage of visual reports. It is an incredibly useful feature and we would like more users to be aware of it.
Share Form Submissions Page!
Submissions page has a really cool interface that let’s you browse submissions one at a time. It can show thumbnails of uploaded files and show maps for addresses entered and many more tricks. Some users told us they love it and want to share it as well just like the reports. So, we went ahead and implemented it. You can now share the submissions page with other from the Settings icon on the Submissions page.
New CSV Reports
You can now create a CSV report. This is especially important if you need to pipe the form submissions output to some other services or databases such as Oracle.
Other Small Improvements
There have been number of other improvements on the reporting features. Address fields have been separated on the Excel and CSV reports. RSS Feed now validates with W3C standards. Print Button now works properly on Chrome.
If you haven’t used Jotform Reports until now, it is a great time to try it out.
