    Is there a widget that lets respondents drag options from one box that is full of option into other boxes?

    Asked by savieshopper on November 11, 2016 at 12:17 PM

    I would love to have one box full of options- and you can place those options into more than just one other box

    Example: I create infographics- I can only have 6 icons on one page. But you can have more than one subject. So- if you select 3 subjects- you can place an icon into each of those subject- but you only have 6 icons to chose from If you select 4 subjects- you can place an icon into each of those 4 subjects- but still only have 6 icons to chose from

     

    You currently have 2 widgets similar to this... but they each only allow for 2 boxes.  Perhaps I'm just not seeing something?

     

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure I understood your workflow completely, but would the Drag and Drop upload widget work for you?

    Maybe a combination of several of them?

    I'm sorry if I misunderstood, in that case please give us more details so we can give you the best possible solution.

    Thank you!

    Sorry I wasn't clear

     

    I attached an image to tr to help me explain...

     

    I want to be able to have a limited number of choices, ex: all the icons.

    And you can drag each icon into a person's box.

     

    So, I could drag 'heart icon' into 'Person 1' box.  Then I would not be able to use 'heart icon' for anyone else.  Does that make more sense?

    Thank you for the clarification. However, base on your requirement, I'm afraid we don't have a widget that would suit it.

    The closest one I found is the "Visual Multi Select" widget. You can add one widget for each person. However, this does not meet your requirement that when an option is selected from Person 1 it should not be available for selection for the other person's box.

    By the way, we can submit a feature request to have this included in your widgets, on your behalf. However, I cannot give any guarantee that it will be available anytime soon. We can only assure you that we will be updating you via this thread if it becomes available.

    Thank you.
