    Hi Raisondetre,

    Can you provide us more details on what you wanted to do on the form.. 

    From what I understand so far, it seems you wanted to have "randomized" questions on the form.

    If you use Condition logic on the form, the questions/answers would still be easy to determine as "linear" even if you randomize the the answers base on questions.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your quick answer. What a would like to do is this : in a "drop down" question, making the position of the propositions random so that for each person that answers the survey the order of the propositions appears differently.... Is that possible ?
    Moreover, I'd like to try the "logical condition" you're talking about, but I can't find it. Would you indicate me the way to use it ?
    Best regads,
    Benjamin Cambresy

    Hi Benjamin,

    Here is the guide on -Conditional-Logic-on-Forms

    As for the random values/options on a dropdown field, it seems this is not doable on the JotForm builder. As you can see, you only manually type those options during design mode. When the form is used, those options will not changed anymore.

    BUT, you can probably do some illusion of a randomize dropdown option by creating several dropdown field with different arrangement of options. Then use the Condition logic to SHOW/HIDE a dropdown field base on the selected option on the current visible dropdown field.

    I'll try to create a sample form.

    Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

    Thanks.
