// Reporting Modules
In Dapresy Pro you can use different Reporting Modules to report your data. When you report your project you select the Reporting Modules you want to use. You can at any time add or remove Reporting Modules without this affecting any other parts of your project or require you to redo parts of the process.
All the Reporting Modules use the same data-source. This means that when you update your data (independent of functionality used) your reports will be updated and always show the same results. Since Dapresy Pro stores the Meta Data information as a separate layer this means that you also can change colour for e.g. one answer alternative in the central colour library and then all your reports with this answer alternative will be updated. The same example can also be applied to grouping or computed variables. A good example is where you have 10-point scale in many different reports and want to add top-box and bottom-box. Change this in the central answer-list and all your reports will reflect this change.
With StoryTeller you create online dashboards with a point-and-click operation. Build your online Dashboard in the same way as you are used to when designing your PowerPoint reports. The StoryTeller covers a wide spectrum of possibilities. You can create everything from simple Dashboards to comprehensive online portals with filters and multi-layered access rights to the data. The online dashboards and reports created via the StoryTeller reporting module can be exported to PowerPoint where the research data will be displayed as images, preventing the end-user from accidentally changing the results.
If your client requires full freedom, (or freedom within a defined framework) to drill-down in data and make their own charts with custom settings, filters and target groups, then Chart Creator is the right choice, probably in combination with the StoryTeller.
With Chart Creator you select one or several questions, chart type, time period, target group, filters and miscellaneous settings, such as weighted data, counts etc. Once you have selected what you need you click Apply and the chart will be created on the fly. Created charts can either be stored in your personal online library or exported to PowerPoint. If you decide to store the charts in the online library they can be updated automatically once new data is available in your project.
Online Chart Library
In the Online Chart Library you find the charts you have decided to save when you have worked with the Chart Creator. For each chart you decide how you want the chart to behave when new data is available for your project. Decide to always report all data (Ad-Hoc projects) or decide to show the last six weeks of data (e.g. for trackers) etc. All the charts can easily be downloaded to PowerPoint. Select chart by chart to download, or download all charts in a single go. If you want to share the charts you create to your colleagues you can save the charts to the public library instead of your personal. The functionality is all there to allow you to collaborate in the most effective way with your colleagues.
The Cross Table Tool is a powerful tool for creating online tables. You have full freedom to combine any number of variables you need, add filters, hide rows, columns, add significance-testing, colour formatting, indexing. The tables you create can either be exported to Excel, or saved as your personal Favourite tables. Tables you store as personal favourites will be automatically updated once new data is available in your project.
If you are using Dapresy Genie – the Dynamic PowerPoint Add-In - you can directly import your favourite tables into PowerPoint and create PowerPoint reports with the chart engine available in PowerPoint.
When your client requires a deliverable consisting of both online and offline reports the Dapresy Genie plugin is the ultimate tool. With Dapresy Genie you get access to all your project data directly from PowerPoint. Just Open up PowerPoint, click on the Dapresy Tab and then select the project and data tables you want to import to your PowerPoint document.
Once you have imported your data you design the PowerPoint reports as you normally do, using all functionality available in PowerPoint for design, layout and flexibility and all the time you benefit from having the data available from Dapresy Pro. You do not need to worry about bringing in data from your data-collecting tool via Excel or other software; you always have access to the raw data from Dapresy Pro directly into your PowerPoint charts.
The Open Ended reporting module allows you to report open-ended answers both as lists and as Word Clouds. You can add profiler information to each answer given by different respondents, i.e. you can show background variables or for instance a computed segment variable together with the comments. With the search and filtering functions you can narrow your report to only show relevant answers from a specific target group, like Promoters or Detractors. The result can be exported to PDF for offline use.
The TopLine reporting module serves the purpose of providing a quick and easy to understand table of your data. The TopLine report gives you a table showing the frequency for each variable. Click the “Export to” button to export each question as a separate chart into PowerPoint.
If you decide to deliver a full online portal to your client, you probably would like to add all information to one central place. With the document Archive you can add a portal tab where you can upload documents, like for example the questionnaire, your written findings etc.
As with all other reporting modules in Dapresy Pro you can grant access rights to individual documents for different users. You also have the possibility to add a hierarchical document archive where each level in an organization has access to local documents.
Action and Planning Tool
For hierarchical projects, like employee satisfaction studies, customer satisfaction studies etc. you have the possibility to add a Action and Planning tool. With this tool each stakeholder in an organization can plan follow-up activities based on the reported results. The progress for the activities can easily be monitored from a central function.
