  • Optional: select the relationship groups that should be able to view and respond to the question.
  • Optional: select if the question should be required.
  • Click "Save Changes".

Results for forced rank items can be displayed in PDF reports by going to the Reports >> Edit Report Templates option and including the "Forced Rank Item Report (beta)" component in the report template. Results can also be exported to excel or csv format under the Reports >> Export Data Files, using the export titled "Forced Ranking Item Export".
