The Data Visualization module was written to provide a simple, high-level visualization of your unique form data, letting you - very easily! - visualize waht you need through Line Charts, Area Charts, Pie Charts, Bar Charts and Column Charts. In some cases, this can provide merely a novel insight into the information in your form: in other cases, genuinely useful information.

What it offers

This module provides a simple interface to create and manage your visualizations, assign them to specific forms, and allows you fine-tune the permissions so that each client may see different visualizations (if needed). It lets you embed your visualizations in custom pages in the Form Tools user interface and in your own web pages. There is no limit to the number of visualizations you can create, and each may be customized with its own style.

Visualization Types

The current version of this module allows for two ways to visualization your data, but depending on demand, we hope to expand this functionality (see the Feature Suggestions page!).

 Activity Charts
Activity Charts display the activity on your forms: the frequency of submissions during particular periods of time. You may choose between Line Charts, Area Charts and Column Charts to display the data.

 Field Charts
Field Charts display the breakdown of content in a single form field. Generally, this visualization type is used on multi-select Option List fields, since they offer a finite number of values that the field may contain. You may choose between Pie Charts, Bar Charts and Column Charts to display the data.
