A report is made up of a collection of widgets that display your data as charts, graphs, and tables—widgets are the building blocks of reports. There are five types of widgets: Chart, Graph, Number, Datagrid, and Text. Different widgets work well with different field types to help you clearly display your data.

You can have up to 20 widgets on a report with two notable exceptions: You can only use one Datagrid widget per report, and Text widgets don't count towards the limit at all—you can add as may Text widgets as you need.

Chart widgets work with all field types. The settings and display options depend on the field type you used in your form.

When editing your report, click the Chart widget in the report preview to open the Chart Settings. You'll need to select the field you want to use for the widget. To help you out, we automatically choose one of the following chart types—the one that makes the most sense for the field type you're using.

  • Bar Chart
  • Grid Chart
  • Card Chart

Total Count vs. Unanswered Count: Total Count represents the total number of non-blank submissions for that field. The Unanswered Count represents the number of blank responses for that field. A Checkbox field is considered blank if all selections are blank (has zero checked boxes).

Graph widgets work with all field types. When editing your report, click the Graph widget in the report preview to open the Graph Settings. You can choose to display the data as a small, medium, or large Pie, Bar, or Line Graph. Line Graphs only work with Multiple Choice and Dropdown fields.

Sample Wufoo datagrid widget

The Datagrid widget displays entry data in a nice, organized table so people easily browse individual entries—it's kind of like browsing entries in a spreadsheet. You can only add one Datagrid widget per report.

When editing your report, click the Datagrid widget in the report preview to open the Datagrid Settings.
