I am a Forms newbie. I've created a question that contains a likert scale matrix, where people will be asked to rate a list of statements on a likert scale. I'd like to reorder the list of statements and for the life of me can't figure out how to do that. I can see how to delete a statement, but I really don't want to have to delete the statements and start over. Seems like there should be an easy way to either a) insert a statement, or b) change the order of statements. Anyone have any suggestions?

Many thanks,

Kathy

Hi @Rospenda 

 

As far as I know, there's no way to rearrange the Linkert statements at this time. 

 

Depending on how large your Linkert is, you could add a new one, and then cut & paste the statements over in the order you want them in.

 

Not a solution but at least it's quicker than retyping it all out again!

 

Best wishes!

@Damien Rosario  Thanks - that's pretty much what I ended up doing!

Hi Kathy @Rospenda 

 

Yeah that's what I figured. A shame you can't move them around but at least you have a way forward.

 

Best wishes with your Form!

 

Cheers
