Randomise question order within a question group?

Have just started using LimeSurvey for a couple of small projects for work - am very impressed with the development and functionality of the program, it is also surprisingly user friendly as well.

Have just been puzzled by one thing so far, I was wondering whether it was possible to change the order of questions within a question group so that each new respondent will see the questions in a different order. For some of the questions that I use, this is something that comes up quite frequently, so it would be handy to know if it is possible without needing to copy and change surveys accordingly.

Thanks - and keep up the good work!

You can use 'Randomization groups' functionality from advanced question settings to randomly change the order of questions. This gives you even more control over randomization because you don't have to randomize all questions in a group. For example you can random only 2 out of 5, then 3 will always stay in place. A bit more info here:
