When you receive a submission (results of a form that users are sending to you when they press the submit form button), data gets stored in encrypted mode, but also becomes aggregated and indexed. Based on the aggregated data, you can later generate charts and place them in your form (they are mainly used for pools, reports, etc).

What type of fields can be displayed in charts?

A chart can display a field that can contain a value. Excluding the Long text field, where the user can input a large amount of text which is not suitable for data aggregation, the fields Short text, Single Choice, Multiple Choice, Dropdown, Date and Time, all of them can be shown in a chart.

What type of charts can I use?

You can use both Pie charts and Column charts.
