    If someone has to select their 1st, 2nd, 3rd choices out of 5 possible choices... ? HOW?

    Asked by fastlanetravel on November 29, 2011 at 06:26 PM

    Form Question is:

    Which Porsche (all included, except Turbo) would you like to drive on the trip?


    Choices are (5) different models...   

    And the instructions are to "indicate your first, second and third choices"


    How do I present this...  Drop down?

     However, can we make it so they can only pick 3?

    I suggest placing three dropdwns and 

    using conditional logic. LOADS OF CONDITIONS.

    Or try a matrix example in link below.



    Only on option can be selected it each line. Think of it as multiple multple choice fields. There's another option, you could use multiple multiple choice fields but that would be messier. 

    I really preffer the second, but the first takes up less space your choice?

    Hey mathquiz... I think that the matrix solution you offered up would work great...

    If I understand it correctly, it will prevent the same car from being selected more than once... right?

    Thanks, going to try it out.

    Thanks Mathquiz :)


    According to Mathquiz, first car can only be selected once on the first row.

    Let us know if you have problems with that. Thanks.
