To edit the layout of a Spark, go to the Sparks menu and choose the Layout button alongside the Spark. In the Spark Layout, the presentation of the results may be customised. Later, when the Spark is "Shared" and "Viewed", the customised presentation will visible. Customising options include filtering results, changing the graph type, hiding or showing specific questions and responses, hiding or showing elements like additional comments, response rates, themes and more. Key messages and recommendations can also be added.
The Sparks Layout allows easy analysis of results and addition of key messages and recommendations. Sparks can be saved along with analysis without losing the work you done. Sparks can be customised and designed to present and share results with different audiences.
Default Options for all Questions
In the Defaults panel, you can set and apply defaults to the entire Spark. Select the desired default options and then click "Apply defaults" to apply throughout the Spark results. Decide what to hide or show, including response rates, themes, additional text, question types, etc. Consider setting and applying the default settings first to avoid over writing selections for individual questions.
In the Default "Chart Options" tab, the Chart Types, labels and legends, sorting order and chart colours can be set for the entire Spark.
In the "Reset Options" tab, all previous Spark customisations and settings can be reset. This will overwrite all previous Spark settings.
Individual Question Results
The results tab shows the question results and what will be visible when shared and viewed. After changing default or individual question settings the results presentation will change according to the settings selected.
Display Options Tab
In the "Display Options" tab the presentation elements of each individual survey result may be customised, including:
- Show or hide the the question. Hidden questions turn grey.
- Show or hide other result elements
- Question Theme
- Response rate
- Additional comments
- Add messages and recommendations. Messages will be visible when shared and can be used to make key points, draw conclusions, make recommendations, etc.
Chart Options Tab
In the "Chart Options" tab, the Chart Types, labels and legends, sorting order and chart colours can be set for the question. Results for the question update immediately and can be viewed in the Results Tab.
The Filters tab allows results to be filtered. Select the answers for specific questions you want to filter by and then apply. When "Applying" or "Removing" filters the change will be made immediately and you will be returned to the top of the page where a Filters Panel will be visible. Multiple filters can be set. Individual filters can be Enabled and Disabled in the Filters Panel. Filters may also be deleted.
For questions only allowing a single answer, the condition will be set up to include ANY of the selected values. For Questions allowing multiple answers, conditions can be selected to include respondents who selected ANY of the filtered answers. Or, include respondents who selected ALL of the filtered answers. For multiple filters there will be an option show results that match ANY filters or require that results match ALL filters.
