I am trying to rank a series of five answers with 5 being the most interested and 1 the least. Is there a way to use the number ranking without doing a drag and drop?
I find the drag and drop works really well especially with the mobile version, but if you want a different approach just use the Ranking Grid question type. You can add your five items and it will force the person to select the ranking from 1 to 5 (or less if you set the option to require less). It is a radio grid layout but also works just fine.
