Renewed Report Builder: Response table

The response table is a dynamic type of widget that will add records automatically to the table once you have set it up. You can set the maximum number of records to show and set the table to sort records from low to high or high to low.


Here's how a table could look like in your report:

  1. Add a response table widget
  2. Setup the widget
  3. Additional settings
  4. Additional buttons

1. Add a response table widget

To add the widget to the page, all you have to do is click on it and drag and drop it on the page.

Once you add the widget a pop-up window will open where you can add your content.

2. Setup the widget

First, you will set up the data that will appear in the table. Each row you are setting up here will be displayed as a column in the table.Report V2: Response table- setup the widget

  1. Give the column a name so respondents will know what data they are being shown.
  2. Use the drop-down arrow to select the value which you want to show in the table. This could be the date and time of the response, a response to a particular question, the custom score, or a formula.
  3. Use the drop-down arrow to choose how to sort the results. No sorting is the default option, but you can choose to sort results from highest to lowest or vice versa.
  4. Add or remove columns from the table. Adding another column will bring up the same 3 options, so repeat steps 1-3 to choose what to display in the next column.
  5. Choose the style of your table: Basic, Header, Banded or Column.
  6. Adjust the table width.

  7. Select your primary color from the color selector.
  8. Select your header text color from the color selector.
  9. Limit the number of rows that will be displayed.
  10. Click the sign to add a filter to your table. Only records that match this filter will be displayed in the table. The default filter type is based on answers to a particular question. If you'd like to change this, click the arrow to access the drop-down menu of all available filter options, such as intro field, date, language, and quiz score.

The custom filter is useful if you want to always show the table, but only want data shown if it matches certain criteria. If you want to only display this widget for example for a particular company department, you can set the logic widget rules. The conditions for the custom filter and the widget logic rules don't need to be the same. Eg, set a custom filter to only display rows of data for those who answered the English version of the survey, and the widget logic rules could state that the entire widget should only be displayed to those in a particular company department.

3. Additional settings

Select the widget and then at the right of the screen click on the gear button. The widget list will be replaced by the additional settings.
