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.

It would be really, really, really nice (and intuitive) to be able to manually select the order of the form fields on my form by dragging them in the editor to where I want them, rather than the precedence of when they were created in my custom form field profile.

Awesome idea @CRUSER_1

I will be opening up this idea so users like yourself can vote and comment on this idea as well. 


I agree, when creating custom fields, I can't move them to where they'r supposed to be...

Hi again! it would also be helpful if we could order the contact fields how we want. I don't see an option to change the order and it would be nice if I could move the "name" field to the top where "first name" and "last name" are. thanks!

Is this still not an option?? Shocking your system doesn't allow this to happen.

My company also needs the feature to arrange the contact fields and custom fields. We collect information about customers' projects and it doesn't make sense to the fields arranged alphabetically. 

Hi there! This is easy to use, but with migrating from another service, my fields came in an odd order. I really need to be able to customize my fields more (radio buttons, drop downs) and reorganize them (move the First Name and Last name so they are sequential on the form) so that the form flows naturally. Just some thoughts. Thanks for all you do!

Hi @JennaJ303


Thanks for sharing this feedback with us! Being able to reorder the fields on a landing page is a feature request we are currently collecting feedback on. In fact we have merged your post into a larger thread focused on this idea. As for the ability to have drop-down field types, we recommend sharing your need of this directly on the feedback thread focused on that idea. The more request a thread like these receive the higher of a priority it can be given by our Product Team.


Please, we need to rearrange the fields. First Name, Last Name, Email Address is standard 100% of the time. Email should not come first.

It would be nice to be able to rearrange the contact fields on forms. I'd like to place Company right after first and last name, then address. But it does not seem to work that way. I can do it on web forms, why not Constant Contact landing page forms?

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.
