SurveyGizmo Needs Your Help with Reporting!


Hello there!

I’m the User Experience Designer here at SurveyGizmo. We are planning some changes to reporting this year; we’d like to get some more details from you about what we can do better.

Update: We have finished collecting your valuable feedback! We will be sharing the results here.

Stay tuned!

    I do a lot of 360s and have to download the responses to create a report.  It would be nice to be able to generate a report based on the type of respondent (peers, subordinates, etc.) as identified in the contact upload.  A summary with all tabulated is only moderately helpful.

      I would love it if exports would only include the actual questions by default and have all of the other data unchecked. I doubt many people use most of the technical data but they can always check it if they do.

        On the Share tab there is an option to re-run 30, 60, 90, or 120 times.  We do annual surveys that go out continuously through the year, and we report on it monthly, so I would love an option for 12.

          Reporting Request~  I would love something similar to the Bulk Editor for surveys but for reports.  We schedule a lot of monthly reports and I would love one place where I could see/edit a list of reports, when they’re scheduled to run, and maybe even the first or first 2 email addresses in the “send to” field, subject and from email.  Even the ability to just edit and add these columns to the Saved Reports list would be helpful.

            SUGGESTION 1: Ability to Hide Statistics Blocks

            I personally would love to be able to hide statistics for a question in a report if possible.  

            I often have a question that asks either a District Number or a Zip Code which I change to a Pie Graph in order to get percents.  However, at that point I don’t need the averages and standard deviations that I need on all other questions.


            I see 3 ways to do it.

            1. The ability to assign a class to a to a report element like you can a question in build mode.


              This might be the better method, but I don’t know your backend system all to well.  This method would ensure the style is always applied to the right element.

            2. Each div.Question given an ID


              Currently there is an ID attached to the ‘horizontal bar chart’ table that is in the following format:

                   report-highchart-table-{ELEMENT ID}_{SURVEY ID}

              Where {ELEMENT ID} is the {ELEMENT ID}’th element in the report.

              What this method would entail is attaching a similar ID to each div.question, like so:

                   report-question-{ELEMENT ID}_{SURVEY ID}

            3. Have an option under Element Settings to hide the statistics block.


            1 and 2 would satisfy all of us CSS users out there and make very happy. 1 a little more than 2.

            3 Would satisfy the casual users.


            SUGGESTION 2: Give Vertical Bar Charts a class selector dedicated to them.

            Currently are given the same class as a pie chart, which is:


            What I request is that it be given this class.



            This just makes sense.  Also, this would allow me a workaround for Suggestion 1 as I could hide statistics for all pie-charts and leave them on vertical bar charts, or vice versa.
