Summary Survey Results


The summary report allows you to view all survey data one question at a time. The results will include a chart and data table for each question. You can export the entire report into a PDF, or Excel. You can also export the individual charts and data tables one by one. Most questions enable you to choose between a bar chart, a column chart, pie chart or doughnut chart.

First time using an online survey tool? The summary report will give you a nice overview of your data. From here you can then decide if you need filtering or cross tabulation for further insights.

What are Report Filters?

Filtering allows you find hidden trends in your data. For example, maybe question #1 of your survey is "Did you like visiting our store?" and question #2 asks "What is your age?". You can then filter by question #2 age and might see that a younger age bracket likes your store more than an older age bracket. This can help you decide on what markets you want to target.

Getting Setup

The report dashboard will include buttons where you can filter, export, or share your data publicly. This report is useful to get a broad overview of your data. For example, if you sent an RSVP survey out, you could quickly see the votes determining the consensus location for the event. From here you could filter your data, for example, by males or females to get the consensus location by gender.

Filtering Logic

A single Filter Rule uses OR logic within the filter. This means any respondents who fit at least one of the filter’s criteria are shown. For example, if you're filtering by question and answer and select two answer options (A and B), the filter will include any respondent who chose EITHER answer option A OR answer option B.

When multiple Filters Rules are applied at once, they are combined using “AND” logic, by default. This means that only results that meet both Filter Rules are shown — a response must meet the criteria of all filters to be included in the filtered dataset. You can toggle this to "OR” by toggling the dropdown menu within the filter criteria section.
