    Can I create a Ranking Question?

    Asked by Evan on February 11, 2013 at 03:43 PM

    I need to create a question that has 3 statements and 3 options that can only be used once.  For example,


    Please rank the 3 options in order of importance:

    Option 1: Least Important


                   Most Important

    Option 2: Least Important


                   Most Important

    Option 3: Least Important


                   Most Important


    The user will only be able to use each answer once, so by rule, there can't be two options that are both answered as Most Important.  I hope this makes sense.  Is there a way for me to logically do this using your software?

    Please let me know when you get a chance.

    Thank you,

    Hi Evan, you can easily do this with Jotforms. Here is the demo I made for you. Demo.

    In order to do that, all you need is Matrix Tool under Survey Tools section.

    Options can still be used at a repetitive manner. However, there is a workaround and Javascript can be used to verify the selections and limit the choices.
