The Edit Chart panel is where you can indicate the chart type, select the values and dimensions for building the chart, add/edit the chart title and subtitle. This panel appears when you click the +Add Chart button or click on a Chart to edit it. 

The Edit Chart panel consists of 2 tabs: Data and Design:


  • On the Data tab, you may specify the Chart Title, Chart Values (Calculations), Chart Dimensions, hide Empty or 'No response' categories if needed, Make a copy of this chart or Delete it.
  • On the Design tab, you may set up a Chart Title and Subtitle, as well as activate/deactivate multiple chart design options which influence how the chart is displayed. More information can be found in the Chart Design chapter.

On the top of the Edit Chart panel the icons with types of charts are displayed, so you can choose a chart type or switch to a different one by clicking these icons. More information can be found in the Chart Types chapter.

The Chart Title and Subtitle are limited to 150 characters including spaces.

Chart Values and Dimensions

You can indicate which data should be used to build a chart by dragging it from the Data Source panel to Values and Dimensions fields. 

Values (Calculations) are calculated measurements of data collected in certain questions, answer options or columns of your form/survey. Values display your numeric data in charts or tables. The examples of values are a number of responses, scores, calculated averages of numeric values.

Dimensions break down Values into categories on a chart or table. They help to focus on different groups of data, for instance, different regions, names, types, facilities, etc.

Although each chart type has its own names and limits for values and dimensions (show by, slices, rows, columns), there are some general rules that apply to all of them: 

  1. To create a chart, drag and drop the question or its part from the Data Source panel to the Value or Dimension field. The compatible questions are indicated with the following symbol:
  2. If the Chart type supports multiple Values/Dimensions, you may add several questions or their parts until the limit is reached. In such case, the following notification message will be displayed: 


  3. The Section Header and Compare One Against Another question types are not supported and cannot be used to build a chart; 
  4. You may rearrange the data in values/dimensions by dragging; the charts will be updated on the Dashboard Body automatically;
  5. You may also drag data from values to dimensions, and vice versa.

Chart Data Settings

The setting Hide Empty Categories is common for all chart types, except for Table. If you want to hide the dimensions (or table rows/columns) for which there are no responses, you can enable this setting:

 For example:

In your form, you ask a respondent to choose their Gender (1st question) and Department (2nd question):

Then you would like to see how many males and females are in different departments, so you create a Bar Chart in your Dashboard and add Male and Female answer options as Values, and Department question as Dimensions (Show by).

If none of the respondents selected the Accounting department, Accounting bar will be empty:

 

You can hide this bar by enabling Hide Empty Categories on the Edit Chart panel:

Hide no Response setting is on by default. It hides No Response category in Charts. It might appear if respondent answered a question added as a Chart Value, but did not provide a response to the question, used as a dimension.


Once you have edited the Chart, click the <Dashboard link on the top of the Edit Chart panel, or click anywhere on the canvas outside charts. This will return you to the Edit Dashboard panel. 

To stop editing one chart and start editing another, simply select a different chart on the Dashboard body.

Chart Design Settings

Design tab is located on the Edit Chart panel. You may access it while creating or editing one of your Charts. The Design options that are available there depend on the Chart or Table type, as well as the combination of dimensions and calculations in the chart data.

Chart Design settings override Dashboard Design settings.

Chart Title and Subtitle

On the Design tab, you can activate/deactivate both the Title and Subtitle. Once activated, you can add text and set the text alignment:

The Chart Title and Subtitle are limited to 150 characters including spaces.

Bar/Line/Slice Colors

If you would like to apply individual chart colors instead of using Dashboard colors, you may do it in this section. You will see and be able to choose as many individual colors as there are unique bars/lines and slices in your chart.

If your Bar chart consists of one dimension and one calculation only, by default all bars will be displayed in the same color:

For such charts, there will be an additional setting which will allow to keep using one default color, or activate Different Bar Colors:


Bar Grouping

This setting is available only for bar charts with two dimensions and one value. 


The Grouped option is the default one.

Show Values


Activate this option if you would like to see calculated values in your chart:


Show Tooltips

Tooltips are displayed when hovering your mouse over a bar, slice, or point on the line or a table cell, with information about the dimension name and value.

If you would like to see these tooltips, activate this option on the Design tab:


X-Axis

This setting allows to show/hide X-Axis on your chart, and is displayed only if a Bar/Line Chart has at least one dimension.

Additionally, you may enable and add a Custom Title which will be displayed below the X-Axis. The Title field is limited to 50 symbols.


Y-Axis (%)

This setting allows to show/hide Y-Axis on your chart.


Additionally, you may enable and add a Custom Title, specify the Minimum/Maximum value and set a Tick interval.
A custom title will be displayed near the Y-Axis. The Title field is limited to 50 symbols. The default Minimum and Maximum Value is auto, but you may input any number with which the axis should start and end.
The Tick interval can also be changed if needed. For example, this is the graph with the Auto tick setting, which appears to be 1:

If we change the Tick interval to 0.5, the graph will look like this:

Scroll

Sometimes in Charts X-axis may have a lot of categories which don't fit into the chart width. Then you may enable the Scroll option on the Design tab.


Please note that vertical and horizontal scroll options will appear for those types of bar charts.


Display points

This setting appears for Line Charts only.


Activate it if you would like to display points on the lines, along with the values. If this option is disabled, points will still be displayed on hover.

Show labels

This setting appears for Pie Charts only.

When this option is on, answer labels will be displayed next to each slice.

Responses per page

This setting appears for Tables only and allows to determine how many responses are displayed per page in your Table:
