My Excel report isn’t divided into columns

Each Excel version converts the CSV that you download from Survey Anyplace in a different way. If you're having trouble reading your Excel file, you can try these steps.

First, start by double-checking you converted the CSV to Excel in the correct way. This guide will show you how.

Still not a correct Excel file? Follow these steps:

Click on the home button of your computer and open the console panel.

How can I download survey results that are hidden by a filter?

By default, the dashboard displays results from the past month. To view and download all results, simply click on the filter, and press the X to delete the filter that only shows the past month's results. Make sure to click save and close to save the changes you've made to the filter settings.

How can I delete my test results?

Go to Responses when you are viewing the results dashboard.

Check the box at the top of the list to select all responses. Then click Delete selected responses. Be aware - this action is irreversible. If you only want to delete individual responses, you can do this one by one next to each individual response.

Don't forget to reset the completion rate if you don't want your test results included in this count. Click on Options in the Results tab and find the reset completion rate button under the Edit summary section.

Can I share results with non-Survey Anyplace users?

Yes, we provide a special feature – Dashboards – which allows you to specify who should get access to the online results pages. This can be password protected. Make a specific dashboard for each of your audiences by using filters. External users will only get access to the results pages (optionally white-labeled) and will not be able to adapt surveys/quizzes or delete responses.
