Reorder fields on forms

Please add the ability to reorder fields on a form. I'm pretty surprised this is not an option. Your default order is wonky and not suited well for the type of interaction I want to have with customers. It give the impression to potential customers that we are unorganized. Not a great first impression. This feature can not be that difficult to implement.

Status changed to: Acknowledged

We're updating the status of this idea to more accurately reflect its current status with our engineering team and also made slight changes to the subject line in order for it to be more easily found. We can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on the idea but should indicate some awareness that we have heard your feedback and could be taken under consideration for a future release.

Yes please add this feature. It's shocking this isn't already a standard feature. I've yet to see a form online were you don't enter your name before the email or other fields.


I came across this trying to find a way to reorganize the fields. Yes, we do need this! Totally agree with vkelly ^^ It's so odd to be asking for email first.

It would be great if I could rearrange the fields. For example: I want my form to have the option to opt into a free magazine shipment if they want to when they sign up for my newsletter, but they dont HAVE to. Ideally I'd like to have the custom field that I've created, "Opt in to receive magazine shipment: YES/NO" above the address fields because it isn't a required field for everyone who wants to receive my emails. The structure would be more user friendly in my opinion. It would also be nice to be able to insert placeholder texts into the answer fields. (such as: Instructing the consumer to only fill out the address field if they're opting in to receiving magazines. Rather than having no instruction at all if it isn't a required field). Just a suggestion that I think could make constant contact rock even more!

Fully agree! We work with doctors and want them to include their credential and profession. Right now the order is:






Job Title


Additional Credentials


Highest Degree



It should be name, degree, credentials, as that is how names appear in all professional communication. 



Did anything come of the request to manage the order of fields? 


Hi @KathyE499 


At this time we do not have a time estimate of when this feature will be available. We will however reach back out to this thread when there are any further updates we can share.


Almost five years after the request for a common feature with other similar systems (reorder fields), and we're all still frustrated.
Python code for this:

import csv

# Open the input and output files
with open('input.csv', 'r') as input_file, open('output.csv', 'w', newline='') as output_file:
# Create a CSV reader and writer objects
reader = csv.reader(input_file)
writer = csv.writer(output_file)

# Define the field order
field_order = ['Email Address', 'First Name', 'Last Name', 'Job Title', 'Company Name']

# Write the header row in the output file with reordered fields

# Iterate through each row in the input file and reorder fields according to field_order
for row in reader:
reordered_row = [row[field_order.index(field)] for field in field_order]


Status changed to: Planned

Hi all. We are updating the status of this idea to Planned. There has been some movement on our end to review how a draggable sign-up form would function and allow for the reorganization of contact fields. We can't share any dates or commit to this being included in an upcoming update. If we receive any news, we'll update this post.
