Some surveys can get long due to the number of questions, having a lot of open-ended questions, etc. If your survey questions are numbered, then it becomes easy for your survey respondents to follow the questions and check for their progress.
Consider you are doing a survey to test how well your employees are supported to work remotely. You are asking them a series of questions regarding working from home, and there are various question types in the survey. You have some single-select questions, some smiley rating questions, and some open-ended questions. Your flow in this survey is crucial to identify and isolate problem areas to fix them and support your staff better. Numbering your survey will help your employees know the number of questions, how many they need to answer, and their questionnaire progress.
If you conduct surveys that have a high number of survey questions, it helps survey respondents answer the survey better. Also, numbering your surveys or questions where not all the questions are mandatory helps your audience navigate the survey better.
Not overwhelm: Numbering your survey questions lets survey respondents know how many questions they have to answer. This helps not overwhelm them and improves the survey response rate.
Know progress: When your questionnaires are numbered, it is effortless to track the survey progress. Your questionnaire respondents know how many questions they have answered and how many more they need to answer.
Follow the survey better: Numbered surveys are easier to follow and answer for respondents. This especially holds true for long surveys that can be taken over a longer duration due to the high number of questions in them.
