  • 1.  Online Version/Data Entry Version of Survey not in correct order

    Posted Feb 23, 2024 10:33 AM

    I went in to add data to a survey (using enter responses online)  that we created a while back and all the questions are in a different order and one of them doesn't display the options in the drop box. However the print version is still displaying correctly. I am attaching the print version & screen shots of the online version.

    Jennifer - thanks for sending this over. Until we get this solved, I would encourage you to use the Bulk Entry Form (I emailed you separately with the link to the form for your survey).

    What's the Bulk Entry Form? Click through for the Entering Paper Survey Responses tutorial (login required) for explanations of your options:

    1. Entering Responses Individually (where Jennifer discovered the issue reported)
    2. Bulk Entry Form
    3. Bulk Upload Template

    If anyone else is having this issue - online survey not matching your desired/designed survey layout - please let us know.

    Thank you,
