Drag and Drop Ranking Interaction

Aug 13, 2018

Hi there,

I want to set up an interaction where we ask users to rank a set of steps in order of completion from 1-5, where the answers for 1 and 5 are specific and must be in the correct place, but 2, 3, and 4 can be in any order. I know the Freeform Drag and Drop functionalities are pretty restricted so i'm wondering how else I can do this.

Hi there, Leeana! You could still use the Freeform Drag-and-Drop setup, and you can designate items 1 and 5 as the drag items, and their respective drop targets.  Add the other drop targets, but without a drop item.

For the rest of the items, give them drop states and triggers so that they become draggable objects. This way, they can order 2, 3 and 4 how they'd like, but only get evaluated on putting 1 and 5 in the correct location.  Check out this quick example (file attached).

If anyone else in the community has some other cool ideas about how to get this accomplished, please feel free to chime in! 😀
