How do i use cascading select within ranking question in KoBoToolbox?

Dear Sir,
Below I am giving some examples, which I want to put in Kobo form.

What Type of Job you want (Select Many)
Options are - 1. Govt
2. Private
3. Business
4. Farming
5. Small Scale Industries
What is your 1st preference (Condition - Which has been selected from 1st questions)
What is your 2nd preference (Condition - Which has been selected from 1st questions)
What is your 3rd preference (Condition - Which has been selected from 1st questions)

Query 2 - While adding Ranking Question, I want only some of them mandatory. Is it possible?

Please guide me.

Hi @sarbeswar,

You could do the same as outline in the image below:

In the survey tab of your xlsform:

In the choices tab of your xlsform:

Data entry screen as seen in Enketo:

Reference xlsform:
Ranking Questions & Cascading Select Questions.xls (31.5 KB)

Have a great day!

additional hint:

Based on @Kal_Lam, here another version, with a step-wise reduced list.
Ranking Questions Questions02.xls (31.5 KB)

You might even only ask ranking for those items which are not automatically fixed, For ex. if only 1 selected = first ranking. If 2 selected, after ranking first, the second is fixed.
But this may need more work for analysis (or to calculate additional form variables).
Kind regards

Dear Sir,

With this can I create more than 1 or 2 question set in one form.

Please guide me how can I do this in Ranking type questions

Hi @sarbeswar,

You should be able to design as wished. As outlined in the post above, i have combined both the cascading select questions with the ranking question.
