From questions--drop down item ordering is just random

Have searched looking to discover how to control the order of items in drop down selection menu on a Form, but ended up more confused. According to what I found, there is no internal way to manage the order of drop down items. Many people indicated though that their menu items were in alpha-numeric order. On my form, there is no rhyme or reason to how they are ordered. In several cases the options are the same for multiple questions, and yet monday’s form creator just orders the same answers differently for each question.

It’s rather annoying–anyone else who has encountered this or solved it, I’d love to hear what you came up with.

I think the only solution that works is including the numbering in the option names directly like this: “1. Yes” “2. No” 3. N/A"

Then Monday Forms will honor that naming pattern and list them “correctly” in dropdown.

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. N/A

Thanks for following up, but even that isn’t working. I literally have a list that goes 4, 1, 2, 3.

I cannot figure out what logic it’s using to order them.

Wondering if there has been an update on this issue?
