How do I rotate (randomize) the options in tables

Hi @Erblina_Temaj

Please refer to the Randomizing Choice Order in the ODK docs

In my case, I don't want to randomize rate1, rate2 and rate3 that in this case are choices. I need to randomize option 1, option 2, option 3 and option 4 that in xls form look like questions. Therefore, I need to know if there is a way to randomize a group of questions. Thank you

Hi @Erblina_Temaj
There is no easy way to display questions in a random way but there is a workaround you can use to achieve something like this. Here is a sample form:
Random question order.xlsx (6.0 KB)

So the workaround is that if you have let's say three questions A, B, C you need to create a group of questions for every possible order

Group 1: A, B, C
Group 2: A, C, B
Group 3: C, A, B
Group 4: C, B, A
Group 5: B, C, A
Group 6: B, A, C

then you have to generate a random number between 1-6 and display just one of those groups depending on the generated number.
