Spotlight report

Spotlight report allows you to share the results of your survey in a very unique way with all the users who took your survey. The spotlight report allows your respondents to visually see how their responses compared to the overall survey responses.

Fundamentally the idea is very simple. When users take survey, after they complete the survey, they are directed to a page that shows the summary of all the other responses overlayed with their own response in the form of pie chart.

How does it work?

The spotlight report is essentially the same overall report (Real-Time Summary Report) except that for every respondent, a “your choice” pointer is shown for that answer option which was selected by respondent. This can be shared via Facebook or Twitter.

How do I enable spotlight reporting on my account?

You can enable the Spotlight Reports by going to:

  • Login » Surveys » Edit » Finish Options
  • From the select finish option drop-down, select spotlight report.
  • Survey Software Help Image

How do the respondents view spotlight report?

The respondents can view the spotlight report at the end of survey after they click on done button.

For example, you have shared a survey on cosmetics usage and the respondents start taking the survey. Once the respondents have answered all the questions and click on done, the survey will take them to the spotlight report.
