How to Create a Grid Listing Report?

Last Update: June 3, 2016

Grid Listing is useful in several ways, a classic example of which is the ability to show the submissions on your web page right after a user hits the Submit button. In the generated grid list you can do the following:

- Rearrange the order of the columns in the table by dragging the column headings.

- Make the grid larger.

- Add/remove column fields

- Sort Ascend/Descend the data by field.

Follow all steps below to create Grid Listing report:

1. Login to your account and go to My Forms page

2. Select the Form from the list and click on 'Reports' and "Add New Report" from the dropdown

3.  Choose 'Grid Listing' from the options click on 'Next'.

6. You can choose what fields are to be included in the listing. To restrict access to the list you can enable Password Protection.

7. The URL to access the list is displayed you can share the listing using the URL. To display the grid listing in your webpage get the iframe code to embed.

I have clicked my form and then "Report" but nothing seems to pop up. There are no changes to anything. Why is that?

Having trouble enabling password protection. I click the password box and it never asks to enter a password for access. Form generates and gives me the link. But, when posted it opens online without a passowrd. Any suggestions on getting this to work?

I am using Weebly and have edited my grid box and then I publish it. It comes back up with only part of the comments showing whereas before in edit mode, it was showing all of the comment.

Also, how does another person go about leaving a comment?
I have the page listed under "more" under the name "test."

Can the grind be limited to specific dates or other criteria? I would like setup reports that would display just the past 24 hours data or data from a specific column if populated (no blanks).

Might be a bug. When using grid listing of a date sorted list of "event" til grid report don't seem to handle dates correct when sorting after dates. I have used the date format "yyyymmdd". When "sorting" in the grid the date 2014/05/10 will be shown after the 2014/06/26. This dosen't make any sence. I have tryed replacing the date field in the form (and re-submit the submissions).
Even more strange is that HTML table does sort the dates correctly, but you can't define the table to show without scrollbars.
The calender report option could also be a solution. But the calender can only show all dates, and not just dates with a submission.
The link to my even calender is:

There are empty columns being generated between field columns. How do I eliminate these? They are causing my grid to be too wide for useful viewing.

How do I add a name, email address and submissions to a grid listing as well as columns to separate the headings? All I have so far is a box that says submissions.

Is there any way to change the column headings on the grid report? For example, a question might ask "Was the jetbridge clean when you arrived?" Instead of that question being the heading, can I change it to read something else, like "Clean JB"?
