Ranking / rating polls
I want to be able to capture answers to 'ranking' questions like, "Identify your top three choices of colour for the new office" and then have people place a preference on the ones they like. E.g. a completed answer sheet would be:
A. Red [ 3 ]
B. Blue [ ]
C. Yellow [ 1 ]
D. Green [ 2 ]
E. Orange [ ]
The variables are:
- The number of options available
- The rating 'direction' (1 is high or 1 is low)
- The number of choices that must be made (minium)
- The number of choices that can be made (maximum)
- A choice whether duplicate values are allowed (i.e. rate 2 twice)
Of course, your challenge is to make this easy to use on SMS. You could do this by just asking people to place their responses in order, i.e. the above would be "C D A".
Hope this is useful.
OK Guys! Watch the blog on Monday to see this announced! Thanks for supporting this with your votes.

Hello.... I was wondering if this was available yet also. This would be a wonderful method of getting "weighted" prefrences regarding what audiences really want. ie. top 3 colors based upon ranking versus number of votes.

Hi - has there been any progress in terms of offering an automated way to capture responses to a forced rank type of question?
