You can view and manage the forms that users submit in a JCR dashboard, data table, or metadata table. You can use this information to discover how your form is used and to improve your forms.

The JCR dashboard provides a timeline view of form submissions and a visual overview of submission data. The data table contains records of submissions in a table format that you can view, filter, and export. You perform data analysis in the dashboard and datatable.

The metadata table provides a static list of records that you can use to validate that submissions have been recorded.

Viewing submissions in a JCR dashboard

The JCR dashboard provides you with a quick overview of submission data for a form. The dashboard contains reports that show submissions by date and by source submission page. Reports also shows which form fields contain empty values and which options users selected for checkboxes and other inputs.

The total number of submissions, average number of submissions per day, and total number of submissions in the last day display at the top of the dashboard. You can click Average per day to display the average submissions per week, month, and year, and click Last day to display total submissions in the last 7, 14, and 21 days.

The JCR dashboard shows the following reports:

  • Submissions over time
    Shows the total number of submissions by day, week, month, or year. To change the date range, select a date type at the top right of the chart. Submissions display on the y-axis and the date displays on the x-axis.
