Drag and Drop Rank Order Question Setup

A drag and drop question is a rank order scaling question. Rank order scaling questions allow a certain set of options (brands or products, etc.) to be ranked based upon a specific attribute or characteristic. The Drag and Drop rank order question type allows you to have images as ranking options in your question. Respondents can then drag the images one by one to rank them, once the images are all dragged they can be sorted easily by dragging and dropping them vertically in the box.

What is the recommended image size?

For best look and feel we recommend the images with width less than 350px. 350x200px

If the image width is larger than 350 the image will be resized in the list but will not be scaled not destroying the aspect ratio of the image..

If respondents go through all the pages in the survey without selecting answers, the response is still considered as complete. You can enable required option to make a question required so that respondents can continue with the survey only after responding to the questions.
