With a numerical input field question, your respondents have the opportunity to enter a numerical value. These types of questions are not automatically added to your report, instead, you have to add them manually.
To illustrate, we'll use the following numerical input question as an example:
STEP 1 - Create a new variable view
- Go to your report and select settings on the side menu. If the menu is closed, click the menu icon () to open it first.
- Click on Variables*.
- Click on your numerical input field question and select add variable version.
- Name your variable, e.g. seniority
- To define the content of your variable, click on categories.
- Click on the add icon () to start defining your categories.
- You have 6 options to define your data criteria:
- Equal to
- Less than
- Less than/equal to
- Greater than
- Greater than/equal to
- For this example, we want to divide our seniority variable into:
- Less than 1 year
- Between 2 - 5 years
- Between 6 - 10 years
- More than 10 years
- To create the first one, less than 1 year, select less than, write 1 in the input field and click next. Name the category and click save.
- Remember that you can create as many categories as you need. For this example, once we've added all the categories it looks like this:
- Once you've defined your category, click next.
- Name your category and click save.

Step 2 - Add your chart
Now that you've created your variable view, you can add charts based on it.
- Go to your report and click on the add icon ().
- Select between frequency or comparison chart, depending on your reporting needs.
- When selecting the variables for your chart, you can select the variable view you have just created. If you have created several variable views on the same variable, click on the arrow corresponding the variable and you will be able to see the list of variable views you have created.
- When you have chosen your variable(s), click add.
- Now you'll have something resembling this:
