How to apply randomization?

Survey professionals often apply randomization as a method to combat survey bias and ensure data integrity. By shuffling the order of choices, questions, and/or pages, the survey owner minimizes the possibility of survey fatigue. This feature can be applied to a specific set of questions or all of the questions on the page. Surveyol makes this randomizing feature simple and effortless so it can be incorporated, if needed, into all of your surveys.
