About this task

You can change the order in which the questions in one category appear relative to those in other categories for the same survey definition. You may want to change the order of questions if you add a new question manually after you create other questions.

When you create questions using the survey creator, the system sets the Order field for the first question to 101, the second to 102, and so on. When you create a new question outside of the survey creator, the Order is set to 100 by default, which means it appears before all questions generated by the survey creator.


  1. Navigate to Survey > View Surveys and open the appropriate survey definition.
  2. In the Metric Categories related list, edit the values in the Order column.
  3. To change the order of questions within a category, complete the following steps.
    1. Open the Assessment Metrics related list.
    2. Edit the values in the Order column.
  4. Click Update.
