OpinionX is a research tool for stack ranking people's priorities. Here are five simple steps to help you get your first survey up and running in minutes...
#1. Pick A Ranking Method
The ranking method you choose should be based on the format of result you need and the options you're planning to rank. Here's a quick guide:
Order Rank: rank statements from highest to lowest preference by asking participants to drag-and-drop the full list into their personal order of preference (better suited to short lists of 10 options or less).
Pair Rank: rank statements from highest to lowest preference via a series of head-to-head votes (well suited for ranking longer lists of 10+ options).
Agree Rank: rank statements from highest to lowest consensus by asking participants to vote 'agree' or 'disagree' on each one.
When creating your survey, hover over any of these ranking methods to see an example of what voting looks like for participants (as shown below).
#2. Add Your Question & Ranking Options
This step is really easy! Some extra tips to help you get the most out of your survey:
Your can have as many ranking blocks as you'd like, just hit the (+) button on the right-hand side of the block to add an additional separate question to your survey.
If you're conducting a Customer Problem Stack Ranking survey, here's our guide to writing great problem statements for user research.
You can also crowdsource new ranking options directly from your participants using the Text Response block.
#3. Add Your Other Questions
Here are some questions you should consider adding to your survey:
Welcome & Finish Pages: customize the first page in your survey to ensure participants trust your survey and the last page to redirect them to any URL you want upon completion (tip: you can see the "Edit Welcome Page" button in the screenshot above).
#4. Preview Your Survey
Before distributing your survey link, hit the 'Preview' icon (👁) to see how it will look for participants. This is a great way to spot typos or issues with your questions before distributing your survey.
#5. Invite Your Teammates
