An interactive mapping question allows a participant to place a pinpoint on a map, and then submit a comment pertaining to that point.

When creating a dynamic report, the comments don't automatically display the specific map point that that participant is referring to. You can edit your dynamic report to display the map thumbnail showing their selected pinpoint next to the comment it pertains to. This feature creates more visually illustrative reports that you can share as a link or save in a PDF.

To get started, let us first take a look at an interactive map question. In this case, the user is asked to respond to a question by dropping a pin within a map's boundaries with the option to submit a comment:

Anyone viewing this map question can click on a pin to see the associated comment on the live site.

From the Results & Data tab, you can edit an existing report, or click Create New Dynamic Report if you have yet to create one:

Note: Reports update in real time as participants complete the survey, all the way up until your survey is closed! You don't have to create a new report each time you need an update of the survey's progress. It updates automatically!

Find your interactive map question within the report, and click Options. (This menu will appear when you hover slightly over the question.)

The Edit this report item dialog will appear. Toggle the “Show thumbnail with map pin location for map comments” button On (green):

and click the Save button in the bottom right corner:


The map thumbnail associated with each comment will be displayed below the question in your dynamic report, and stakeholders can see the map location and comments at a glance, without having to click on associated pins.
