Ranking a survey - compulsory ranking

Hi All! 

I am wondering if anyone can help me ahead of the UK service desk opening at 1pm.  


I want to copile a survey wherein respondents RANK (not rate!) the answers and wherein it is obilgatory to put them in order of preference:


For example: 


Chicken 1 

Beef 2 

Lamb 3 


When I have created my survey, it seems that one can rank the items equally and there is no obligation to use in order of preference. 


I would be grateful for any help! 


Thank you 




Re: Ranking a survey - compulsory ranking

Hello @AndyS43. Great question! This is possible using our Survey tool. 


When selecting the question type, you will select Rank Items Numerically. Then, enter in the items that you would like to rank.




When previeiwng and testing the survey, you'll see that if someone tried to rank the items equally, they will get an error message.
