About Report Template Visualizations

Dashboard report templates have many different visualizations you can add. Some of these, like the engagement summary and scorecard, are almost exactly like their dashboard counterparts. Others, like the breakdown bar and statistics table, can communicate similar data to widgets you’d find in a dashboard, but with a unique and simple setup.

Bar Chart Visualization

The Bar Chart visualization allows you to see data about a selected field in a bar format. You can then breakout your bars by another field, allowing you to get granular in your data analysis.

Creating a Bar Chart

  1. Click Insert in the report template toolbar or in the report template body.
    image of the insert menu for inserting a bar chart
  2. Select Visualization.
  3. Choose Chart.
  4. Select Bar Chart.
  5. Click Add Metric to add data to your chart.
    image of the dropdown for adding a field/metric to a bar chart

    Qtip: You can add multiple metrics into your chart.
  6. Click your newly added metric.
  7. Select the field you would like to display.
    Qtip: If you select a date field, you can then select how you would like your dates to be grouped together.
  8. Select the metric that is displayed.

Compatible Fields

The following field types can be added to Bar Charts:

  • Numeric
  • Number Set
  • Text Set
  • Date
  • Multi-Answer Text Set

This means that Text Value and Open Text fields cannot be displayed in Bar Charts.

Customizing a Bar Chart

To learn more about editing the title, configuring the metric, breaking out data by additional fields, display logic, or other general style settings shared by other visualizations, see the Visualization Overview.

For information on customizing Bar Charts, read Bar Chart Customization. Please note that the linked page is for a similar feature in the Survey Platform, and only the linked section is applicable.

Line Chart Visualization

Line Chart visualizations are used to view your data points in a chart connected by lines. This visualization type is particularly useful in analyzing trends over time.

Gauge Chart Visualization

Gauge Charts can help you quickly determine how a given field is performing versus how it is expected to perform. With a Gauge Chart, the visualization displays your chosen metric along a scale that displays color according to where your metric falls on the expected scale. The arrow below the value ranges will show you where your current metric falls on the scale.

Engagement Summary Visualization

The Engagement Summary visualization is used to analyze the favorability of a selected field. You can also add comparisons into your Engagement Summary visualization to compare against historical data or industry benchmarks. This visualization lets you rebuild the Engagement Summary widget from your dashboard in a report.

Creating an Engagement Summary Visualization

  1. Click Insert in the report template toolbar or in the report template body.
    image of the insert menu for inserting an engagement summary
  2. Select Visualization.

From here, the Engagement Summary visualization has the same setup and customization options as the widget, with some exceptions.

Differences from the Widget

For the most part, the Engagement Summary is the same in dashboards and reports, with a few exceptions.

  • The scale’s color is taken from the reports Global Settings, particularly the Favorability Scale.
  • A few customization options are not available. The horizontal bar format and the compact view are not available in reports.

Participation Summary Visualization

The Participation Summary visualization gives you an overview of how many of your participants have taken your survey.

Creating a Participation Summary Visualization

  • The scale’s color is taken from the reports Global Settings, particularly the Favorability Scale.

Data Table Visualization

The Data Table visualization allows you to view basic information about a selected field. You can also break out this information by other fields, such as metadata.

Qtip: By default, this table pulls in all sources mapped to your dashboard. If you have multiple sources mapped to your dashboard, and you only want to pull from one, you will need to add a visualization filter.

Creating a Data Table

  1. Click Insert in the menu or on the report page.
    image of the insert menu for a data table
  2. Hover over Visualization.
  3. Hover over Table.

Statistics Table Visualization

Statistics Tables help you see key statistics about a chosen field, such as mean and standard deviation.

Qtip: By default, this table pulls in all sources mapped to your dashboard. If you have multiple sources mapped to your dashboard, and you only want to pull from one, you will need to add a visualization filter.

Creating a Statistics Table

  1. Click Insert in the menu or on the report page.
    image of the insert menu for inserting a statistics table
  2. Hover over Visualization.
  3. Hover over Table.

The Statistics Table can display the following statistics:

  • Minimum
  • Maximum
  • Mean
  • Standard Deviation
  • Variance
  • Responses
  • Sum
  • Top Box
  • Bottom Box

Unlike its counterpart in the Survey Platform, Report Templates cannot display median.

Learn more about these options and how to hide or display them at Statistics Table Customization Options. Please note that the linked support page is for a similar feature in the Survey Platform, and only the linked section is relevant.

Additional Customization Options

For customizing display logic, breaking out visualizations by other data (such as department), and style settings shared by other visualizations, see Visualization Overview.

Results Table Visualization

The Results Table visualization displays data in a list format. It breaks out each response as a separate row, and allows you to customize what columns of collected data to include. The Results Table is best if you want to see individual responses or open-ended feedback; if you want to display data on response counts or statistics, use the Statistics Table or a Data Table.

Qtip: By default, this table pulls in all sources mapped to your dashboard. If you have multiple sources mapped to your dashboard, and you only want to pull from one, you will need to add a visualization filter.

Creating a Results Table

  • The scale’s color is taken from the reports Global Settings, particularly the Favorability Scale.
  • There are no additional visualization options, and thus no percentile option. The Question list is a horizontal bar by default.
  • When you select the impact measure, you can also select to Show R Value. This is the R Value of the Impact.

  • The scale’s color is taken from the reports Global Settings, particularly the Favorability Scale.
  • No significance testing.
  • You cannot change the visualization type to histogram – Scorecards are horizontal bars by default.

Word Cloud Visualization

Word Cloud visualizations allow you to view the words repeated most often in your open-ended text results. The most frequent words appear in a cluster, with the font size increasing the more often that word was included in a response.

Despite sharing a name with the dashboard Word Cloud widget, the look and feel of this visualization are more similar to the World Cloud in Advanced-Reports of the CoreXM platform.
