    Widget to number items in order of importance

    Asked by naguibihelek on January 03, 2016 at 08:22 PM

    I was looking for a widget that let's the user number a list of options in order of priority. Something like this

    __ One

    __ Two

    __ Three

    Would look like this when they're done

    2_ One

    3_ Two

    1_ Three

    Is there something to do this, which also checks that the user numbers each item, and doesn't accidentally use the same number twice?

    items in same and accidentally item

    Hi,

     

    I think this Orderable List widget will work for your needs.

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

    The user can drag and drop the list according to their order of preference.

     

    Do inform us if you need further assistance,
    Regards.

    Christian, Thanks but that is not what I am looking for.

    I have used ordered list, and reported issue with that. It gives wrong results compared to my example above. Is there something else that is like my example above.

    Thanks. Nagui

    Perhaps the following widgets could help?

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

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

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

     

    Although they won't be able to have the order number but they'll be shown in your submissions in order.

    Another possible way is to create your own custom script that will order the items in your form. However, you'll need to use the form's full source code.

    Let us know if that helps.
