Would you like to randomly order options in your form fields? Displaying Multiple Choice, Checkboxes, and other field options in random order each time your form loads can help to avoid order bias and collect more reliable data.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to randomize the order of Checkboxes and Multiple Choice options in WPForms.


Before we get started, you’ll need to create a new form or edit an existing one.

After opening the form builder, add either a Checkboxes or Multiple Choice field. Then, click on it to open its Field Options panel.
