I'm creating a signup form that will display a list of several groups for people to choose to subscribe to. Is there a way to change the order that the groups are displayed in?

Hi there -- Great question! You can change the order those groups display in by changing their order in your Manage Fields. You can access that button from your Audience main page. The changes made there will reflect on your sign-up forms!

I clicked into "Manage Contact Fields," and that gave me options for more information fields for subscribers to fill out (which I also needed, so thanks!) However, I don't see anything to change the order of the groups. Am I missing something?

You're very close! If you hover over the 3 horizontal lines in each row (next to the red X), you should get a 4-way arrow that allows you to drag that row up or down! Here's what that looks like in my account:

I hope this helps!!

It's not the contact fields I'm needing to reorder. It's the list of groups that people can choose to subscribe to.  My library is setting up a variety of monthly newsletters related to different departments and subjects, and I've created email lists for each of those newsletters. In the sign-up form, I'd like to be able to change the order of the groups in the checklist where people will choose which newsletters (email groups) they're signing up for.

Hello again -- So sorry, you are right! I was on the wrong track there. I can't find a way to reorder that list of groups displayed on the sign-up form. That's not a current feature of your account. If you think that would be useful, I encourage you to post an idea here in the Community. Our product team keeps an eye on those to see what our Emma users are looking for in terms of added features!

Thanks! I found a solution. I realized they're displaying in alphabetical/numerical order, so I'm just adding numbers (1., 2., etc) to the beginning of the group names to make them display in the order I want them.

I would also like the ability to reorder the groups without having to add numbers. Please consider adding this feature. Thanks!
