    Can I make one question randomized in a survey form

    Asked by FloridaDreamHomes on December 11, 2015 at 02:59 PM

    Hello JotForm,

    We're in the process of trying to utilize a few different forms for our website. One of the things we'd like to do (We understand this may not be possible) would be to make a guest survey, with the final question being randomized. So, 9 out of the 10 questions would be the same for everyone, but the 10th question would be randomly selected from a pool of potential questions. This would be in order to get more specific feedback, but to not bog down the user with a plethora of questions.


    Any help you could give us would be very much appreciated.


    Kind regards,


    Tony Origer,


    Florida Dream Homes

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I think it could be possible to accomplish, you should add the Submissions Counter widget to your form and then use conditions to show the specific question, I think you can have more than one hidden question and show one of them depending of the condition you will set.

    This is the link to the widget : http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/submissions_counter

    This is the link to the guide about conditions : http://www.jotform.com/help/316-How-to-show-or-hide-a-field-in-the-form-based-on-the-other-field-input-or-selection

    Basically, you should use the Submission Counter widget to know a number, and then set the condition, for example, like this : IF Submission Counter Contains 1 Then Show Question 10.

    Please, if you have more questions or need more help feel free to contact us, we will be glad to assist you.
