General settings

Table of contents

    There are a number of settings that can be amended for your report. These settings will alter the report to display answers and questions in different ways. Report settings are split into two categories: Standard settings  and Advanced settings. To access the report settings, click SETTINGS in the left-hand menu of the report you are in.

    When changes are made to the report settings, they are applied to the whole report version. However, some settings can be overridden by individual settings in graphs. You should also note that settings operate on the report version level as opposed to survey level.

    If a report is shared, any change in settings will immediately be applied to the shared version.

    Settings overview

    Standard settings:

    • Auto save
    • Measurement units
    • Show page numbers
    • Show series with 0 answers
    • Display values in charts

    Advanced settings:

    • Decimal places (percentages and other values)
    • Hide BG (background) questions with 0 answers

    Standard settings

    Auto save

    This setting is always on by default, meaning your report will be automatically be saved after each change.

    You might choose to deactivate auto save when editing a report that you have shared with someone else. This is because any change you make and save is implemented instantly and mirrored in the shared report on the recipient’s end.

    EN_auto save report settings

    When this option is disabled you will need to manually click SAVE to store your changes.

    Measurement units

    Decides what type of measurement will be used in the presentation of your data. This setting applies to both tables and graphs in the current report version. It is set to Numbers & percentages by default.

    • Percentage – Only the percentage share of answers on each question option will be presented in your report.
    • Numbers – Only the number of answers on each question option will be presented in your report.
    • Numbers & percentages – Both Percentage and Numbers will be presented in your report.

    Individual graph settings for measurement units override the general report settings. This means you can tweak the measurement units for specific graphs while having the general settings applied to the rest of the report.

    Show page numbers

    This setting is switched on by default. It means that every dash in your report will show you the page number and the question number it belongs to.

    You might want to switch this toggle off for the shared reports to make them look cleaner.

    Show series with 0 answers

    If there are series that do not contain any answers, this setting will decide whether the results will be shown in the report or not. Disable the setting if you don’t want to display the series in the report. It will also help to declutter your report.

    Display values in charts

    Values are not shown in graphs by default; you must hover over individual bars to see them. If you want the question values to show, switch on Display values in charts. Whether the values are shown as percentage, numbers, or both, is defined by the Measurement units setting.

    Advanced settings

    Decimal places (percentages and other values)

    This setting applies to both graphs and tables across the whole survey. This setting is mirrored in PDF and PPT exports, but does not affect Excel exports. You can choose from 0 to 4 decimal places by using the arrows or typing in a number (0-4).

    Hide BG (background) questions with 0 answers

    This option is enabled by default, so any empty background data labels (e.g. test data) will be hidden from the report, making it cleaner and clearer. Disable this setting if you want to see background data labels (options) which do not contain any answers.
