    Drop downs and ranking preferences

    Asked by losbour on September 02, 2014 at 12:37 PM

    I want to create a drop down that ranks a person's preference.


    If a person select event A as first preference, I would like them to only able to choose 2nd or 3rd preference for the next three events. Eliminating the options they can choose from the drop down as I wish for them to be able to use that drop down option only once.

    Does the elimination of the option should be saved permanently so when other user fills the form, they can't select the option which are already taken or selected before? If so, that's possible with Gift Registry. It's a checkbox field though and not a dropdown field. Check this: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/gift_registry

    However, if what you need is to only rank the options according to the user's preference, this widget will be of help. http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/orderable_list

    If you want the options to be disabled instantly after it's selected, use this widget. http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/asmselect

    Hope any of these fits your requirements.
