Results Chart: Display Results to Respondents within Your Survey

A Results Chart allows your respondents to see a chart of the summary for a question in your survey. It will act like one of our Poll projects without being restricted to just one question. You can set up multiple result chart actions to display the results from more than one question in your survey.

Use a Result Chart to show your respondents how other people answered your survey. For example, in quizzes in addition to displaying a quiz score you can use results charts to show your students how other people answered the questions.

Logic in Results Chart Actions

On the Logic tab use the logic builder to conditionally display the Results Chart.

Test Your Results Chart 

In order to see the results chart in action you will need to generate some test responses and then record a live response using the share link on the Share tab. The Results Chart will NOT appear when accessing the survey via the Preview option.

Once you've confirmed everything is working if you have generated Test data in your survey, you will want to make sure you delete those responses before going live the survey as those responses will count in the result charts.

 Best Practice Tip: Results Chart

After setting up your Results Chart, you may need to edit the question that the result chart is based on. If this is the case, we suggest deleting your results chart and building a new one in its place once you have made the necessary edits to your question.
