Using Charts & Dashboards To View Survey Responses



If you are using Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement, you will no doubt have used Charts, Views and Dashboards to get a visual representation of your data. This is no different for your Forms Pro Survey responses! We can create charts to display the responses from a view (search) and display them in various places. It’s an easy and familiar way to review your survey feedback.

Just a quick overview if you haven’t created a chart before. Create the charts as system charts under the Forms Pro Survey Response entity. Select a view for the chart preview, then give it a name. For this one, I am counting all of the survey responses, then breaking it out by Net Promoter Score, and the actual Survey that was filled out. Save your chart, then publish the entity.

Now if you navigate to the Survey Response entity, and look at a view, you can click on the Show Chart button which will add it to the left of your view. Clicking on the various segments of your chart will filter the results in the view.

Here we can see a chart showing the sentiment by survey. If the responses showed positive, neutral or negative feedback, we can see it easily in this visual.

Next we have the Net Promoter Score by Survey. So based on each response, we can see how many have given a specific number response on an NPS specific question.

And were we can see the overall number of responses received for each of the surveys.

Another option is to add charts to a Contact record. You could do this for Leads, Accounts or any entity that you are using to set regarding on the survey responses. If you aren’t sure how to do this, check out this post on creating account specific dashboards. It’s the same principle. Below we can see responses by survey and sentiment by survey for a specific Contact.

Finally, we can use a combination of charts and views to create a Forms Pro Survey Response Dashboard. Simple! What ideas do you have? How else might you want to see the data using charts?
