Creating a Profile Report allows you to compare one response to how the rest of the survey sample answered.
For example, if you were conducting a quiz for your students, you could run a Profile Report for each response and hand out the individual report to each student. This would allow them to see how they did compared to the other students.
- Go to Results > Reports then select Profile from the Create a Report button.
- Select from the available Display Options for the report. You can elect to:
- Include Open Text - this includes data input via open-ended questions such as Textboxes, Essays, etc.
- Include "Other - Write In" Text - this includes text submitted via other, write in textboxes associated with Radio Button and Checkbox questions.
- Include Comments - this includes text submitted via Comment fields added to compatible questions
- Include Location Data - this includes location data collected along with the response.
- Select your Profile Labels (this will default to the first question on your survey). In this particular survey, we asked the respondent what their Name was. This will be how we label each individual profile. Up to two Profile Labels can be added, though only one is required.
- Finally, if your survey includes Custom Table questions, determine whether you want the data grouped by row or grouped by column. Learn more about these grouping options here.
- You'll now see a list of all Profile reports, one for each response, with the options to Preview, Share Report, or to Download the report as a PDF.
- Go ahead and click Preview next to one of your responses, this will give you a first look at the individual Profile Report for that response. It should look like a Summary Report with the answer options for your selected response highlighted.
- Click Customize Report to select which questions will appear in the Profile Report. To remove a question from the report, click on the x icon corresponding to that option. The customization options also allow you to:
- change individual chart elements
- include/remove statistics for compatible elements
- filter report data
Visit the Legacy Summary Report documentation to learn more about customization options.

@Duncan: Thank you for your question!
I'm afraid that the Profile Report cannot be shared in the same way as the Standard Report.
A Profile Report generates a unique link for each respondent - but these links are not available while the respondent is taking their survey.
A possible alternative could be to use the Review Response Action to allow the respondent to view their response:
I hope this helps!
