Viewing your Visualizations
Form Tools is great for gathering and managing information, but not so great at
summarizing it. Up to now, it's been up to you to download your form submission data
and interpret it - which is not exactly convenient! Well, that's the purpose of
the Data Visualization module. It lets you - very easily - visualize different
aspects of your form data through Line Charts, Area Charts, Pie Charts, Bar Charts
and Column Charts, providing you and your users with an attractive, high level view
of your data.

Functionality, in brief
This module provides a simple interface to create and manage your visualizations,
assign them to specific forms, and allows you fine-tune the permissions so that
each client may see different visualizations (if needed). It lets you embed your
visualizations in custom pages in the Form Tools user interface and in your own
web pages. There is no limit to the number of visualizations you can create, and
each may be customized with its own style.
The current version of this module allows for two ways to visualization your data, but
depending on demand, we hope to expand this functionality (see the
Feature Suggestions page!).
| Activity Charts
Activity Charts display the activity on your forms: the frequency of submissions
during particular periods of time. You may choose between Line Charts,
Area Charts and Column Charts to display the data.
Activity - Area Chart
| Field Charts
Field Charts display the breakdown of content in a single form field. Generally,
this visualization type is used on multi-select Option List fields, since they
offer a finite number of values that the field may contain. You may choose
between Pie Charts, Bar Charts and Column Charts to display
