Looking for a reporting add-on or tool - any recommendations?

Hi, 

Just started to use Typeform, and where we love the interface and ease-of-use, we’re not equally impressed by the reporting capabilities. They’re pretty basic, and I’m thinking we may need an add-on tool that allows us to take the data from the survey, and do (any of) the following:

  • Calculate averages based on inputs (Typeform doesn’t do this in, for example, matrix questions)
  • Add data to a pre-created reporting template (just update graphs in a preset doc)
  • Use data to calculate something else (for example, calculate NPS based on survey answers around satisfaction)

Might help to know that we’re a training business, and as such are interested in things like average/composite satisfaction scores, “jumps” in proficiency/skill from before/after training, … . Potentially, in the future, we’re also going to use Typeform for assessments (not simply surveys), meaning we need to be able to generate individualised reports, “auto filling” data based on survey input.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations ?

 

Thanks !

Hi @RG-EMEA thanks for joining the community and sharing info about the reporting you’re looking for! This is helpful to know. :) 

Like @john.desborough mentioned, there are quite a few integrations we have here that might help serve what you’re looking for in regards to reporting. To help narrow it down, it’s good to think about the output you’d like the reporting to have. For example, do you want the data simply in a spreadsheet? Or in a graph? If you like the idea of visual aids for the data, integrations such as Report Gorilla can help aid in the look of the data outside typeform. :) 

Hope this helps narrow the search a bit!

@RG-EMEA 

this comes from a user of the product:

I agree with the native capabilities being not what I needed as well: thankfully they have integrations available with Google Sheets, Google Analytics, etc. which i use to do the types of/or similar calculations you discuss for my own reporting back to clients. 

There are a whole raft of integrations available - check out the Connect tab/link in the builder.

Hey @RG-EMEA welcome to the community! Might I recommend you check out @Nordin 's excellent tutorial post (freshly published today):

He uses Google Sheets and Google Data Studio to build reports automatically from responses to his typeform. His is for reporting bugs for the Typeform Support team but the principle is applicable to many use cases. Have a look and see if it's helpful for what you're trying to achieve.

@James - that is an amazing resource, thanks so much sir !

This approach does exactly what I need done, and will make our regular reporting so much easier.

Literally, set (up once) and forget.

I’m tempted to join the little “use case” bandwagon that @Nordin mentions, and add a few of our own. We’re a training firm, not IT/Tech, so let me know if that would be helpful or not.

Thanks guys !

Brilliant! @RG-EMEA so pleased it does what you needed 🙂 If you have any questions as you go I'm sure the great @Nordin can assist. 

And yeah, I also love the idea of demoing what's possible with other use cases too. @Gabriel and I were saying this morning that it would be cool to do some kind of working session on Zoom where @Nordin and a customer (here's looking at you @john.desborough @RG-EMEA ) get together to walk through their use case, which we can then record and post on the community for others to learn from. WDYT Nordin? I know you have a day job and all, but possibly something for a rainy day…?

Sounds like a nice interaction with the community. Would be lovely. We’d need to know in advance what are we going to showcase and do some prep-work as the whole thing can take too long… but yeah, sounds good!

@Nordin nice one. Let's see if we could make it happen. I notice that @john.desborough already shared some details of his use case over on the tutorial thread. Do you think this could be a starting point for working on doing a session like this (assuming Des is interested, too)?

@James @Nordin - colour me in
