New Feature

Data tables
Data tables

The responses view has been completely rebuilt to enable you to do more analysis in Ballpark rather than switching to spreadsheets.

We've transformed the responses table into a powerful way to browse, edit, analyse and export your research results.

What's new:

  • New more compact design - see more in less space and better visualisation of key numbers

  • Stack multiple filters together - dig into your response data by adding filters on every question type including 'contains', 'equals' , plus and/or operators

  • Toggle column visibility - Create the perfect view of your data by showing and hiding columns

  • Download CSV - export your table based on the filters and columns selected

  • Super fast - load thousands of rows of data in less than 2 seconds

We're rolling out Data tables over the coming weeks!
