The .docx Summary Report - What does it include?

Tim Roper -

The .docx summary report is an editable version of the PDF summary report. With that said, the .docx summary report is not identical to the PDF summary report - it does not contain the index at the start, the charts, or any logos. It has been designed to be a pared-down template, giving users flexibility to customise how information is presented and what content is included - you can add your own logo(s), additional context, and charts that meet your own specific needs.

How does the report deal with Quantitative questions?

  • Quantitative questions offer respondents the option to select either:
    one answer from selections provided, e.g. radio buttons, dropdown lists, single tick-boxes;
    or multiple answers, e.g. checkboxes
  • The answers for each quantitative component are displayed in a table

How does the report deal with Qualitative questions?

For text and other qualitative questions, the total number of responses to that part of the question is shown, but qualitative answers are not included in the report in order to keep the data anonymous, (a full export of all responses can still be downloaded in .xlsx format at any time).

NB: Tags from qualitative responses will not show in the summary report.

Generating the .docx Summary Report

As soon as a consultation has a response, the link to download the Summary report as a .docx will appear on the consultation dashboard in the responses section on the left hand side:
