    On my page, I'm looking to provide clients with a list with 15 options and ask the question...

    What are the Top-5 areas that NEED THE GREATEST IMPROVEMENT?

    I'd like them to be able to select 5 options but then rate the priority of those 5 options(greatest need, 2nd greatest etc). The priority can be as easy as ranking each one on a 1-5 scale.

    Any thoughts on how to accomplish this?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    There are a couple ways I can think of to accomplish this.  The first would be fairly tedious, but you could have a checkbox with your 15 selections, then conditionally shown scale rating fields for each selection.  In the end, you will have the 5 rating fields based on the 5 selections made in your checkbox field.  Using manage multiple fields works great for copying multiple fields:

    You would need 15 conditions set up like this:

    One for each checkbox selection and rating pair.  Duplicating the previous condition then changing the selections to the next one in the list makes this quicker than you would expect.

    The result would be something like this form:

    Or if you don't mind having the whole list be sortable, you can use a widget:
