Impact Reports are a convenient way to generate quick and simple aggregate views of your form data from any project that has received submissions. They show pre-formatted views of responses that help you understand the effects of your project in a pie chart, bar chart, or column views, and can be used with either initial or additional forms.

Generate an Impact Report

  1. At the top of the page, select Reports > Impact Reports.

In the Project dropdown selector, select the name of the project for which you want to generate an impact report, then select the name of the form within that project. You will have the option to select the initial form associated with the project, or any additional forms. The report will be automatically generated when these selections are made.


At the top of your page, you will see the following set of simple statistics that show how many questions were on the form, how many responses you received, the completion rate, and the most skipped-over questions (if responses were not required).

  • Questions: Number of fillable fields in your form.

  • Responses: Total number of submissions to your form.

  • Completion rate: Percentage of completed submissions to unsubmitted drafts.

  • Most skipped questions: Unrequired fields that are skipped by submitters the most.

Below these numbers, the questions on your form will appear with pre-configured visualization options to view your response data.

Supported Form Fields

Impact Reports aggregate data for the following fields of any Form:

  • Dropdown lists will aggregate into your choice of chart, including pie, bar, or column.

  • Single checkbox lists will aggregate into your choice of chart, including pie, bar, or column.

  • Multiple/single response lists will aggregate into your choice of chart, including pie, bar, or column.

  • Short/long answers will aggregate into a list with the respondent's name for easy skimming.

Quantitative Data

Single and multiple response questions will automatically aggregate into a chart. You can toggle between a pie, bar, or column chart using the dropdown menu.


Click on the Option button to customize filter responses included in the chart. You can unselect or reselect any of the response choices to filter in or out. Then click Apply.


Below the visualization dropdown selector for each question, you can check the box to show a visual chart, a data table, or both.

Data Table

The Data Table shows you how many and which percentage of respondents selected any given option. Below is an example of a data table showing the same data as the chart above.

Qualitative Data

Written responses are displayed in chronological order, with simple navigation controls provided to go through them in order or skim through them.
