Reordering fields in data download

Hi all, I have a survey form where some administrative folk are downloading the CSV from the Survey123 data page. They need some fields rearranged, but it is not honoring any configuration I give to the stakeholder view layer such as modifying the view definition or configuring the attributes. Anyone know of a way to do this short of deleting and republishing the survey?

Hi Jason,

Apologies for the delay.  I don't believe there is a way to re-order the columns on the Export Data task.  Looking at the API call (Export Item—ArcGIS REST API | ArcGIS for Developers ), there is not the capability to specify a field order

If you reorder the popup the attribute table in a web map will respect it.  I posted this before here but forget which export was being used.

Give that a shot.

Is there any update to the ability to do this? It is possible to reorder in the popup so that the attribute table respects the new order, but this is not honoured in downloads / exports.
