2016 Application Times with GRAPH!

Please enter your 2016 application dates into my form to create a easy to view graph!

I'm a computer guy and have been lurking in the waiting room application wait time forum for the last month and a half.
I figured there has to be a better way to combine all the wait times and get a good idea of how long 2016 processing is taking.
Also, if you have feedback, I'd love to hear it and will try to add it into the charts! (I have 3 kids, so it may take a few days :)

Enter your 2016 dates here: http://goo.gl/forms/AvpVnGWjlzMgZ3ji2

Which then will feed the two graphs below!
(It may take up to 5 minutes for the graphs to update, so don't worry if you don't see your data point right away!)

I don't believe PhpBB will allow you to directly embed a Google Doc spreadsheet without the forum admin installing a specialty extension that inserts customized BBCode options. For obvious reasons, I know Charles is averse to adding extensions and plug-ins: they make updating to new versions of PhpBB more difficult, and add-ons always bring with them security risks that aren't controlled from within the forum software itself. A Google Drawing can be embedded with the standard [img] tag, but there are no built-in options for display of Google Documents, Spreadsheets, or Presentations.

And welcome, by the way!

Thanks for the suggestion! I was in the process of going that route... but got hung up getting kids back in bed.

I may play around with it a bit more... see if I can get their interactive chart to show up. It's been a while since I messed with one of these forums and what they will accept.

I couldn't figure out a way for people to enter their data in then come back and re-enter a completion date... but really just didn't spend much time researching that.

Thanks again!

Someone posted their wait times on 5/26/2016 9:02:59

All in date: 4/18/2015
Plastic in hand: 5/29/2016

I don't know if the 2015 date was a typo or really 2015.
If you recognize this entry, let me know and I can edit it.

If nobody replies, I'm going to delete the entry since this graph doesn't differentiate by year, just month and week.
With some work I could make it do other years, but I don't think anyone cares about 2015 at this point unless your LTC required some type of hearing.
