Widgets are different formats of content that you can include in your survey. This allows you to display data, for example, in graphs or tables, based on the respondent's answer.
If you include variables in your data fields, your charts will display customized data from the responses. You could choose to show an answer given to a question, the score from a question or question block, or many other variables.

Just make sure the variable is a numerical value otherwise the gauge chart will not work. You can also name your progress bar, this label will show on the top of the bar.
- Design options - Chose the colors for your gauge chart. Change the shading so that a higher score will have a different or brighter shade than the lower score.
You can adjust the Thermometer and Bar chart to configure a gradient color.
Bar chart allows you to round the numbers of your results. All you have to do is to toggle the Use rounded numbers button.
Add a gauge graph to your survey to represent average or actual scores or percentage results for question blocks or formulas. Respondents can see at a glance if they've scored towards the top-end or bottom-end of the scale.
Add a Bar Chart to your survey to show respondent's results or another data set at a glance.
Add a Thermometer graph to your survey to show respondent's results in percentages or actual scores. Respondents will see whether they scored towards the top of the thermometer or bottom.
- Question logic – use rules in your survey so that respondents are only shown questions that are relevant to them. Question logic allows you to specify which question to go to or go to the end of the questionnaire, based on the answer to a preceding question, quiz score, or contact data. Alternatively, you can decide to show or hide certain questions based on the criteria you set.
- Question grouping - You might want to show more than one question on the screen to make your questionnaire seem shorter. Use this feature for questions that are all on a related topic. If you really want a short survey, check out the making of a one-page survey guide.
- Labels and messages – did you know you can customize the messages that get shown to respondents, as well as the text of the labels? Make sure you’ve finished creating your questionnaire, then see if any labels or messages could do with improvements.
