Work with your results

Related to:

You can explore and download all the answers you collect in the Responses section of the Results panel.

The Responses section allows you to view individual responses to your typeform, rather than just seeing overall trends, like the Summary section does. This makes it great for diving deeper into qualitative data, to really get to know about each respondent.

Where to find your responses

Go to the Responses section by clicking on the Results panel and then on the Responses tab. The number of responses that your typeform has received will be shown in brackets in this tab.

How to work with your responses

1. Order your data by clicking on the Submission time button to sort by the time the response was submitted. Alternatively, you can choose to display results in alphabetical or numerical order by answers to a particular question.

2. Filter your results for a selected date range by clicking on the All time drop-down menu and selecting a start and end date. Click Apply and only responses from that date range will show up.

3. Search for any text or value in all your responses by typing into the search box. All of the responses that contain that search term will now be displayed in the section on the left hand-side.

Thanks to our Google Sheets integration, you can send typeform responses to a Google Sheet of your choosing. Full information is available in this Help Center article.

What’s all this other information in my responses?

When you download your responses as an XLSX or CSV file you’ll notice some extra columns in the sheet. These contain some useful pieces of information:

  • Start Date: indicates the date and time when the respondent accessed the typeform link.
  • Submit Date: indicates the date and time when the respondent submitted their responses.
  • Network ID: a randomly-generated string of characters unique to the IP address of the respondent. This Network ID is unique to the IP from which the response was collected. It can be used to detect and filter out duplicates. Note that it is not the actual IP address of the respondent – we do not collect and store that information. If several respondents connect through the same network or WiFi, they’ll have the same generated Network ID. On the other hand, if a single person is filling in your typeforms from different locations (therefore different networks) a different Network ID will be associated with each of her submissions.

Be careful when editing your typeform

When editing your typeform, it may have an impact on your collected results.

  • You can add a question to your typeform; that will not make you lose data.
  • When you need to delete a question, though, you’ll lose results associated with the question or answer option. If you need the collected data, make sure you export your data before deleting the question field.
