Randomize Options Order

Digioh App Marketplace

If you are implementing a Survey, it’s good practice to randomize available options for each user to remove any position-based selection bias.

Digioh App #18: Randomize Options Order is a turnkey solution for this, at least with respect to dropdown and radio fields.

From your profile menu top right, go to Custom JS (Apps), install App #18, and then Publish to activate it.

You configure your form dropdown or radio fields as normal, but also add metadata order_random : true

Then, when viewing the box, the order of options will be randomized:

Note that if you have a dropdown with submit value “none” or blank, then that will not be randomly positioned and will be the default. If you don’t want to allow the user to select and submit this value, best practice is to make the submit value blank and set the field to Required in the editor.
