    How do I change the submission order in a report?

    Asked by qqssci on February 20, 2017 at 04:51 AM

    When I create a report with all of my submissions, the first submission is at the bottom. Is there any way I can change the order so the report will always start with the very first submission & keep the order of when submissions were created?

    Generally, the reports are generated in the descending order i.e., the last submission on the top and first submission to the bottom of the report. If you are generating Grid Report or HTML table report, you may click on Date field so that the report will be automatically sorted. You may consider integrating Google Spreadsheet to the form so that the form submissions will be stored in the Google spreadsheet in the ascending order. You may also download the report from Google spreadsheet into an Excel sheet.

    Hope this information helps!
