    Limit Questions to perform Ranking

    Asked by thickey on October 10, 2013 at 11:42 PM

    Please see the forth question with the matrix question type. 

    I would like the user to rank each option with a number 1-6, using each number only once but can only find question types where the respondent can use the numbers multiple times. Please let me know how I can limit their responses.

    Thank you for your help!

    From my understanding you want the user to rank 6 items, from 1 to 6, not repeating any number between the 6 items.

    The ranking can be created with the Matrix tool, however limiting the responses goes beyond the standard tools found on the Form Editor:


    To limit the answers you will need to edit the source code of your form by performing additional programing for the form to behave as you wish.

    If you need additional assistance, do let us know.
