Change output for ranking polls
We love the drag and drop functionality for ranking polls on the participant end. However, the output of the poll results on the screen is not so great. It gets confusing quickly if participants' answers cancel each other out and everything is ranked at the same level. It would be nice if the answers could be listed on the vertical axis and re-organize to reflect the ranking. We've been testing out another polling system, Mentimeter, that has this functionality in their "100 points" questions.
Sure! If I understand, you would like the top ranked choice to be listed at the top of the vertical axis, correct? This way the answer choices will be listed in rank order.
We do have this feature, but we decided not to turn it on by default for ranking polls because some of our customers had complained about how the order kept changing and made it difficult to read.
To get them in rank order on the chart, you will need to enable our Leaderboard feature. Here’s how:
1. click on the paintbrush icon on the top right of the chart to open our visual settings menu
2. in the drop down menu, click on the Bars tab
3. then click the checkbox for Leaderboard
You may then select how many options you’d like to display on the cart. This will list the answer choices in rank order based on how people respond.
