    survey questions - randomly draw questions from a question bank

    Asked by max123jot on February 17, 2016 at 05:08 PM

    thanks your all around support.

    i am providing users with about 20 survey questions to which they respond.

    in order to evaluate the "meaning" of their responses, i would like to provide them with the "same" survey at a later date (perhaps a few weeks) but this time the questions are presented in a different order (?randomly)


    in this way i would have opportunity to compare the "reliability" of their answers (time 1 vs time 2)

    while i could use the same survey, presenting the questions in a different order would add to the work i plan

    If I understand correctly, you want to use the same survey for your next survey at later date, only this time the questions will be presented in a different order than before?

    If so, then you can clone the original survey by following this guide: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    Then with simple drag and drop, you can rearrange the order of the questions by using our Manage Multiple Fields feature. Here's how: How to Manage Multiple Fields

    However, if you want to copy or "draw" the questions for your new survey from other survey forms in your account, then the Field Manager app may prove useful for your requirement.

    Simply follow this link: http://apps.jotform.com/app/field_manager

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
