To create a geolocation chart of where your data was captured, first navigate to your Analytics page. 

Select the Dashboard you would like to use. You can also click on "Add dashboard" to create and name a new Dashboard.

Click on the "Add Chart" button.

You will now be prompted to "Select your Source" in step 1. The "Select Your Source" drop down will only contain names of forms which have at least one submission in the Device Magic Database Destination. The chart data is mapped directly from this source. This Destination should be added to your form by default. For instructions on enabling this Destination, please visit this article.

Select your chart type by clicking on the geolocation chart icon below. Then click "Next".

In step 2, you have the option to choose all of the metadata fields and form questions you'd like incorporated within the chart. These questions are grouped based on their corresponding type.

In this example, "Delivery Date & Time" and "Received By (Name)" are chosen. 

You will also be required to select a Location field in order to proceed. Scroll to the bottom to find your Location type questions. Here we have selected the Location field named "Delivery location". 

You are also given the opportunity to preview your data, by clicking on the "Preview Data" button.

This will show you a preview of the data that has previously been submitted to the fields you have selected. 

In this example, you can see the data from three submissions. The data won’t immediately be visible on the chart, but we will show you how to view it later in this article.

Click on back to return and then click next when you are ready for step 3.

In step 3, you will configure and create your chart. A title for the chart can be added in the "Title" section. 

Then select your Location field.

Once you have chosen your Location field, a map will be generated with the locations of the submissions as blue pins.

When you're satisfied, click "Create". The new chart will appear on your Dashboard.

You can used the icons on the right of your map to manipulate the view. The screenshot below gives more details on their functions.

Hovering over a pin with your cursor will show you more information on the submission. This information is based on the data from the previous fields you selected in step 2. 

On the top right-hand corner of your chart, you can select the date range, chart options menu, and move your chart. For more information on these features, please view this article.
