Now you'll have a few items to fill in. We'll go through each of them below:

Map widget settings

  1. Widget name - start by choosing a name for your map.
  2. Zoom - enable zooming if you want to take a closer look at locations.
  3. Start position of map - specify which location should be the first view.
  4. Change marker - there is a standard marker used to indicate the location. Click Change marker to upload an image of your choice, for example, each marker can be your company's logo. Upload a transparent image so the background will not block anything.
  5. Street - use the arrow to access the drop-down menu. Link the response field of where the particular address item was asked in your questionnaire, e.g., Question 1 response.
  6. Number - in the example here, we clicked on the edit pencil to change to allow typing. Now you can type in the box and fill in a field that was not asked in the survey, for example, if everyone lived in the United States, you would fill this in as the country.

Make sure to click Save and close and your map widget is ready!

Don't forget that you need to Save dashboard as well - you'll find that option when you click Dashboard.

3 What's next?

There are more ways to customize your dashboard – read the guides listed to make sure you’ve got your dashboard looking just right:

  • Create your results dashboard – this guide tells you how to customize your dashboard by choosing which questions you want to see, which summary elements to display, which filters or comparisons to set up, different chart types for your respondents' answers and how to set a public dashboard that allows your respondents to download their data.
  • Filter and compare results - Sometimes you want to focus only on a part of your results. Use the filter and compare feature to show only the results that fulfill a certain condition. You can select your results by Question and Answer, by Intro field, by Date range, by Respondent, by Language, by Custom score, and by Quiz score. The filter feature will show you only the results which match certain conditions. Compare allows you to see different groups side-by-side so that you can compare them to each other.
