Once you have one or more form submissions you may want to generate reports. For example, you might want to generate reports on the specific data entered into your form such as how many students signed up for the Washington DC field trip versus the Disneyland field trip? Reports can range from something as simple as how many submissions did you receive on a given day all the way to very sophisticated data presentation and analytic capabilities.
Forms submissions can be saved to many places. For instance you can save your submissions in the
server's built-in submission repository; store them as email attachments in someone's email inbox; store them into a Google Sheets or a Google Drive folder; store them into a document management system or ECM system such as Confluence; store them into a database or other 3rd party system such as a CMS etc. The options are really endless.
These storage options have various degrees of built-in reporting capabilities. Some support very sophisticated reporting and analytic features.
The Google Connector
can store your form submission data directly into a Google Sheet.
Sheets includes some sophisticated reporting capabilities including charts, queries, filters etc. If your organization is already using Google Apps this can be a simple and effective means of adding reports on your forms submissions data. See the using Google reporting on your submissions
for an example.
The Microsoft Excel export
saves your forms submission data directly to an Excel spreadsheet. Excel includes excellent flexible reporting capabilities and dashboard creation tools and pivot table reports for data analysis. It's simple to select a date range from the
server's submission repository and generate an Excel spreadsheet to create powerful reports.
server currently supports basic reporting which enables you to view the submissions activity over a given time period via the submissions repository UI page.
The submissions view can be shared with any user or role by setting up access control and shared items
. The submitted forms are also directly viewable here. Also edit permissions can be granted allowing specific users to make changes to submitted forms if needed.
