    How can I create a ranking survey question with a numerical value assigned to specific answers?

    Asked by Rissa on August 30, 2016 at 10:22 PM

    I'm creating a survey question using a ranking system. I want to add a numerical value based on specific answers chosen. The end result will allow me to run a report and see what the audience likes the most based on the order of importance.

    For example: 

    1 = 50

    2 = 40

    3 = 30, etc.

    I noticed that you have several questionnaires on your account. May I ask which form is related to your question about ranking?

    I believe for your requirement, that can be achieved by adding a matrix field with multiple radio options.

     

    Then click on the radio icon to open the properties.

    Select the Options tab then add the specified values in the Calculation Values area as seen below.

    Then add Form Calculation widget for each row. This is where we will see the values that we specified in the matrix.

    Then to add each row to each calculation widget, open the widget and add the Matrix field. Check the appropriate row for that calculation field. You can check out this guide for more info on Calculation Widget: How to Perform Calculation in the Form?

    Once you do that to all the widgets, you're all set. You can check out this demo form and clone it to your account if you like to test it out further: https://form.jotform.com/62431664986971
