Edit diagrams

On the left side, after selecting a diagram, the possible settings are displayed:

The settings can be divided into different areas: Visualization - Data sources - Labels

Settings - Visualization

In the first area "Visualization" you can:

#-1 click on the drop-down menu to change the diagram type.

  • for simple questions you can choose from the following types: Column chart, bar chart, line chart, area chart, pie chart or stack chart (vertical or horizontal) as well as the word cloud
  • for multidimensional questions you can choose from the following types: Column, bar, line, area, pie or stack chart (vertical or horizontal).

In addition, the drop-down menu can be used to convert the selected chart into a frequency statistics, coding or results table.

#-2 define the type of "values" and the number of "decimal places" (for percentage values or mean value):

  • for simple questions: absolute, percentage (related to participants of the question or related to selected answer option), mean, minimum, maximum or sum
  • for multidimensional questions: absolute, percentage, average, minimum, maximum or sum

#-3 display the number of participants, a text at the top and/or at the bottom. For multidimensional questions you could additionally swap the axes/legend here.


Settings - Data sources

In the second area "Data sources" you can:

#-1 remove a source in the options (for number of sources > 1), create/edit a new filter only for this source or exclude/ignore report and element filters

#-2 using "Add source" to add another source to the chart. This feature allows you to show a side-by-side comparison of the results of, for example, different age groups in one chart.

#-3 set the "breakdown" of the chart according to a specific question or filter.

Settings - Labels

In the third section "Captions" you can:

#-1 display/edit the main heading,

#-2 display/edit the sub heading,

#-3 as well as sort the x-axis, as well as change the labels. To the left of the labels, you could also customize the displayed color of the ranges per answer option in the charts.

Other settings

Show missing values

Missing values are missing values that occur when a participant has not answered a question. This can have different reasons. For example, the participant may not have seen the question at all due to a display or skip logic, or the participant may have deliberately not answered an optional question. Answers marked as "Exclude from export and report" in the questionnaire are also treated as missing values.

Missing values are supported for all charts and for the frequency table. Note that you select the desired value as "Base" in the visualization. Depending on the base, the missing values are calculated differently:

  • All participants - For Missing values all participants are considered who did not answer the question
  • Participants who have seen the question - For Missing values only those participants are considered who have seen the question but have not answered it.
  • Participants who answered the question - Since in this case only participants who answered the question are taken into account, Missing values will always have the value 0.
