I am setting up a registration form for a tournament in which 5 options for start time are possible. I want users to rank those options in order of preference, and I'm using the Visual Multi Select widget for this.
I made the widget a required field, but I notice that a user can only select one option, and the form will allow them to submit their entry. Is there a way that I can require them to list a specified number of options (e.g., all 5, or at least 3) using either conditional logic or CSS code?

Unfortunately, no, that is not possible with a Visual multi-select widget. CSS cannot do that kind of logic, CSS can only change the look of a certain element in HTML.
And, I checked your form http://www.jotform.us/form/73383800437154, I see an Orderable list there:
Where it is also not possible to do that.
The field I know you can use in that way is checkbox field (Multi-select):
Where you can set such limit:
Let us know if you have any further questions.

Thanks - yes, I realized that by using Orderable List instead of Visual Multi Select, I wouldn't have this problem because all 5 options will be there in some order no matter what.

Hello @PCC_Founders - Seeing that the end goal is to allow users to rank 5 pool options, your current approach of using the Orderable List Widget is better indeed.
I guess you're all set but if you have other questions, just open a new thread so we can help you.
