    Hi,

    Though we do not have the ability to re-order the options in an active form, you could use a "Scale Rating" field to allow your users to assign a rating to each word:

    This would allow you to have a similar result with your users being able to assign a level of importance to each word.

    If this does not work for you, let us know and we will be happy to have another look.

    Hi David,

    http://1081385951.8155540.temp.prositehosting.co.uk/index.php/test

     

    but I sort of wanted it more interactive so maybe the boxes at the bottom and they drag them up or something

    Thank you for providing that example.  Unfortunately I am unaware of anything we have similar to it.  I checked through several of our widgets and nothing really came close.  I believe the rating system described above may be the closest workaround you can get from us currently.

    Ok many thanks for getting back to me ok another thought 

     

    anyway of doing something like a word or something in the middle, then the ability to add the words or link the words to the middle word not all of them just some of them so say what the client thinks is most important

    I did a bit more looking and sure enough, I think this is what you are looking for:

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/orderable_list

    We usually have a widget for everything, sometimes it just takes me a bit longer to find things.

    ...need it to be like a spider diagram the user makes up with words we give them

    Will you be able to share to us an example for this?

    I can only assume that you probably meant the lists to be NOT in the top-down sequence order. But you instead wanted it to be like in pie like graph/chart.

    We will check for further solution once we get a better understanding of the requirement.

    Thanks.

    @cheapwebz 

    Unfortunately we do not have that kind of particular widget but here's another one that works similarly with order list. http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/visual_multi_select. You can define words and users will move them to the right side according to their order. It's more like including and excluding values but with order.

    Here's another one: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/dual_listbox.

    The first one is better though in terms of styling.

    Thanks!
