Randomisation in NetworkCanvas


is it possible to randomise the order in which the alters are displayed (e.g. for Categorial Bin / Ordinal Bin) to avoid order effects?

Thanks so much!

Hi @Theresia!

Thanks for posting this question. At present, there is no way to randomize the order in which alters are displayed. There is the option to create a sort rule for the ‘bins’ (where nodes are ‘stacked’ at the top of the screen) and ‘buckets’ (the ordinal or categorical variables you have defined on the stage represented below) to order nodes in either ascending, descending or as nominated order. We just identified a bug in the latest version of Architect which is impacting these sort options, however, but we hope to have a fix very soon.

I hope this helps!
