How to Add a Ranking Question in a Form

December 18, 2023

A ranking question is a valuable tool in most survey forms. It will allow you to gain information beyond a simple yes or no response as it tasks your form users to rank their choices based on their importance, preference, or priorities.

In Jotform, you can add a ranking question to your form using our Orderable List widget. In this widget, you can add a predefined list of options that users can reorder within your form by dragging and dropping.

Create or edit your existing form and follow the steps below to add the widget:

  1. Click the Add Form Element button on the upper-left corner of the Form Builder.
  2. Go to the Widgets tab.
  3. Search for and click the Orderable List to add. You can also drag/drop the widget to add.
