ReportR: Text Widget


This feature is included in the ReportR plan. Contact us for more information.


Choose the text widget to write paragraphs or sentences of text to be shown on the report. Use the text widget to give further information about questions, give feedback or explain a particular answer.

Type your text in the box and format it as you wish using the editor icons. Check out our WYSIWYG guide to learn how to make your text look appealing and professional. The way you lay out the text is the way it will appear on the PDF report, so take care to space it out properly and make sure the font is the right size.


Tip: Add text before each of the other widgets so that respondents will know what is being displayed, for example, describe exactly what the table or spiderchart is displaying.



Tip: To make advanced design changes to the widgets, you can upload a custom CSS file.


You can add multiple text widgets to create different text version for each outcome you have in your questionnaire. To have the PDF show the right text you can add the widget logic rules, similar to the rules in our survey editor. Click add rule and now select which condition from the drop-down menu should be used to decide when to show the widget.


PDF Text widget criteria


Once you've chosen the initial condition, you can specify exactly what conditions need to be met, for example the answer on question must be greater than a certain number. If you need a more complex condition, click on the white circle with a purple + sign to add criteria that will be in addition to the other criteria (AND), or instead of (OR).

Tip: If you have set up outcomes, you can choose an outcome as the criteria for showing the widget. Choose outcome from the drop-down menu and then select what the outcome should or should not equal so that the widget will be shown. You can set the outcome as the only criteria, or as an additional criteria as shown below. In this example, we clicked the purple button and added that the widget should be shown if both the response on intro field criteria AND the outcome criteria is fulfilled.
