Your surveys can present answers and questions to recipients in a random order. You can choose to randomize the order of answers within a question, randomize the order of questions within the survey, both, or neither.

In the interface, this is referred to as “randomization,” which means the ability to put questions/answers in random order. All recipients will still be presented with all questions.
