    Will re-ordering my radio button entries affect conditional operations?

    Asked by hoopersaki on November 27, 2012 at 02:46 PM

    I have a large form with a number of conditional branches.  For usability, I need to re-order the radio-button answer choices to my first question to make them alphabetical.  Will the conditions “find” their assigned triggers via text, or are they assigned by variable (that is, re-ordering will mess up all my conditions)?

    If so, is there a clever workaround besides trying to find all the conditions and change them?

    We are sorry to inform you that YES, reordering the option will mess up your form conditions. The conditions is there but you also need to reorder them, this is a time consuming to the fact that the best way to solve and correct this is to re-create them, the condition. We are sorry, there's no other workaround for this.

    Thank you.
