Typeform not returning response answers in order of typeform

Does anyone know why with Typeform v1 I could get the response answers back and they would be in the same order everytime, but now in v2 they return a different order every time a request is made. I'm at a complete loss as to how I'm supposed to manage entering users answers in the database now and line them up with the questions because there's no consistent order coming from the response.

So far, I haven't been able to receive a response from Typeform about this.

Here are images of 3 responses from a typeform that return a different order of answers each time. (see: choice > label)

Hello @roywilliq32 

each answer has field object with id prop. You can use this id to identify which question does the answer belong to. Even if you reorder questions in your typeform their ids will not change.

Hello @jordanwilliom are you @roywilliq32 ? You have the same writing style 🤭

Also, did you know Danny had exactly the same issue back in 2018? What are the odds 🤣
