Survey creators can customize the chart type they want to present to the respondents. This report similar to a real-time summary report, except the spotlight report shows a “Your Choice” pointer to every respondent. Respondents can also download this report in the form of a PDF file.

Advanced options:

After selecting the finish option, you can configure the survey tool to compare the results with other parameters. This option sets a filter for the spotlight report. Once you create a data filter, the respondents who fall under this filter would be able to see the spotlight falling under that particular criteria.

For instance, consider the question, 'What is your gender?' Apply filter on the spotlight for the answer option male. Now, if a respondent selects the option male, he would be shown the spotlight compared to all the respondents who selected the same option.

You can define your custom spotlight criteria. QuestionPro offers two options to set your rules.
