Creating Reports

Configuring Reports

With reports, you can sort and consolidate form data by applying filters on the received entries. This way, you can analyze the data collected better and get your team involved in managing them. You can share the reports publicly, or with specific users, and print and export the reports. You can also embed the report into any webpage. 

You can access the Reports section of your form in two ways:

  1. On the homepage (Forms listing page), click the Reports link below your form's name. A list of all the reports created for that particular form will be displayed.

Zoho Forms provides two different ways to present your data. They are 
  1. List View
  2. Kanban View

List View

In List View, all entries are consolidated and presented in tabular format similar to spreadsheet. Using list view, you get a comprehensive view of your entire data set on a single screen.The field names are displayed as column header and each record occupies a row. This allows you to see all your information at once glance.

Steps to Configure List View Report

If you have chosen List View, provide the Report Name and click Create to see the report builder.

List View

Kanban View

Kanban view reports offer a visually engaging way to represent your data. It uses selection fields like Dropdown or Radio fields to categorize entries. The selections made in your dropdown or radio buttons become the column headers. This creates a clear visual distinction between different categories within your data set. Each record in your report is transformed into a visual card. This card can display relevant information about the entry, making it easy to scan and understand. Entries are automatically grouped under the relevant column based on the selection made for that specific record. This allows you to see how many entries fall into each category at a glance.

Let's assume you're hosting a series of webinars on various digital marketing topics. You want to understand which webinars are attracting the most interest from registrants. Using kanban view report you can instantly categorise entries based on their selected webinar topic. This allows you to gauge audience interest and identify the most popular topics.


Steps to Configure Kanban View Report

  1. If you have chosen Kanban View, provide the Report Name and select a field to group entries in Group Columns By and click Next.
    Note: Only Dropdown and Radio choice fields will be displayed for you to choose from.
