    Hi Heather,

    You can do this by enabling the the voting and rating option in your app. You can see more here https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/articles/203566836-Custom-voting-and-Star-rating

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. However, voting and stars will not work.

    Stars work on the entire app, not on fields within the app.

    With voting, you can only vote once within an app. And you can only select 1 choice. I need them to 'vote' for more than one, in order of preference within a single field. They need to rank from 1 to 5, not simply select their top 1.

    For example, when I try using Vote, I name the field "Rank from 1 to 5" then I list 5 options. The client can only select one to vote for. Hence, they cannot rank them. :(

    My app is a 'diagnostic' whereby clients answer lots of questions. One question is to rank 5 options. Is there anyway to do this within a single field?

    Ah ok thanks for clarifying Heather. Unfortunately, you cannot do that within a single field.

    You can however add 5 rating fields to your app and then call each field the different choices for example Feature 1, Feature 2, Feature 3 etc. You can then further up in the item explain the specific features in a text field, for the specific item. Then your clients can rate the different listed features.

    Specifically for what you're describing within a single field there is not a good option.

    I hope my suggestion makes sense.

    If you like you can also send a ticket to support where you add some screenshots from your app so we can give you some advice with the setup.

    Hi Heather,

    Good question. As said this is not simply to solve. The suggestion of Mette is ok, but keep in mind that voting and stars are not available on mobile apps.

    You could, as you suggested, make a category field for each question and give values 1 to 5. That's the closest it can get.

    Regards, Ron

    Thanks, Ron. :) I didn't know that voting and stars were unavailable on mobile apps. This is something I will keep in mind.

    Hi Heather, a little addition because Podio is working hard on improving their mobile apps: I just read in the blog of Tina Egolf (http://blog.podio.com/2014/11/14/podio-mobile-vision-2015/) the iOS app has recently got voting and stars. Suppose Android will follow soon.

    Good luck

    Thanks a lot for helping out here Ron. You're right that the iOS app has the voting and rating feature now. We are hoping to follow up with Android.
