    Field Randomizer Widget Idea

    Asked by KUPSL on July 30, 2014 at 01:25 PM

    Did I miss a setting somewhere?

    Is there a way to

    (a) have selected or all questions appear in a random order each time someone uses the form? Like I have 10 questions A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J... and JotForm randomly orders the questions for each person, like one time it may have A, B, H, F, E, J, C, D, G, I.

    (b) to have a SELECTED NUMBER of questions out of your total amount of questions appear in a random order each time someone uses the form - more or less creating semi-unique forms with each person?  Like if I have 32 total questions and I choose 6 for the number of questions to appear, JotForm will randomly select 6 of the 32 to show each person who answers my form.

    If it's not possible, can it be a future feature? :-)

    Thank you in advance.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the fields order automatically nor to show the selected amount of random fields.

    I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread and forwarded it to our Development Team for consideration.

    We do not have any ETA on this, but we will let you know if we receive any updates.
