Need Date Column For "Text Answers" in Question On Survery.

We send out our customers a simple 10 question survey asking why they bought.  The last question asks for any additional feedback.  I get notices that we have "new responses" and when I go to the survey, look under "overall results" and then see the question and it says "number of responses" and then the link to "View Text Answers".  HERE is the challenge.  There is no way to see which ones are old/new.  There is no "sort" button and it's not clear if the new ones are on top of the list or the bottom several pages back.  A "Date" of response column would be great here!  And by default show the newest ones first. We use the same survey for several months at a time and send out in batches to new customers. So, responses may come in over a long period of time.

Hi @EdF150 how would you expect to sort your responses by date? Where would you like this option? On only the view text answers section of your survey response? What about the sorting option under the individual responses or the current response date filter available does not fit this need?

All the other answers we look at to get an average or look for trends in overall results.  We don’t really look at them individually.

For the “feedback” question, we can get specific good info, ideas, ways to improve etc. from our customers.
It think it would be best in the “view text answers” page.  Just having them in order would be great.  Being able to sort my newest would be even better.  Basically 3 columns:  Date, Comment and their email address.

Hi @EdF150 thanks for following up with these details! We are opening this idea up so other users can weigh in as well.

Status changed to: Not Currently Planned

At this time, we do not have plans to allow for sorting date or time information when viewing Survey reporting for text responses. Reporting will show the date/time in a column with the most recent response appearing at the top.
