How do I create a trend chart?

A trend chart is used to display the data collected during the last 3 survey periods concisely. It even displays different question types! Simply select which questions you'd like to have displayed and see how the data has developed over time.

When creating the chart, feel free to select a mixture of different question types. These will be displayed according to the amount of answer options that each contains, but also in the order in which they appear in the survey.

The results of the selected period filter and the 2 periods previous to this will be displayed. For example, if you are currently viewing May's data, both March and April's data will also be shown:

  • Today/Yesterday: “22.01.2022”, “23.01.2022”, “24.01.2022”
  • Based on survey periods or custom filter: “22.01. - 05.03.”, “08.03. - 15.03.”
  • This month/ Last month: “September”, “October”, “November”
  • This Quarter/ Last quarter: “Q1”, ”Q2”, ”Q3”
  • This Year/ Last year: “2022”, “2023”, “2024”

 

Data collected from NPS questions will be split, showing you exactly how many promoters, passives and detractors you had.

 

Creating the chart:

First add a new chart by clicking the "+" in the top right corner of your dashboard:

Then select which questions you would like to have displayed in the trend chart. The following steps will look different if you have selected either just one or multiple questions.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Trend charts are always created using the full width of the screen, but can be edited later. You can also choose whether you would prefer to see the full height of the chart or scroll within the chart.
  • These charts cannot be exported into Powerpoint or Excel and will not appear in the PDFs of subscribed dashboards.
