The Trends dashboard displays data for answers to quantitative questions (metric questions) over a period of time. Quantitative questions are yes/no, numerical, or rating scale questions. Text questions will not appear in your Trends reporting, nor will one time metric questions—called Polls. Each trend is initially displayed as an average to track how a company, group, or individual are answering a certain question over time.
Account administrators will have access to all quantitative answers and any additional qualitative answer given. Reviewers will have access to their hierarchy's quantitative answers and any person in the company that they follow.
