"Rank in order" questions in survey
I'm using a form to create a survey which includes 4 questions with this format: "What are the biggest barriers for ...(please rank in order of importance from 1-6)". I've considered one option: Each question would be accompanied by 6 columns to represent each of the options to be ranked. In the form, respondents would just write a number from 1 to 6 to correspond to each of the 6 columns.
Is there a feature in forms that would allow me to create a questions like this more easily, and using less columns in the sheet? NOTE: I did not create the survey so do not have the liberty to change the format of the question.
