Use a multi-vote ballot to reduce the number of candidates. For example, use a multi-vote ballot to vote on which variables are most likely to affect your process.
Each voter chooses a set number of items, usually 1/3 or 1/2 of the total number, from the list. Candidates that receive the least votes can be removed from the list.
Use a rating-vote ballot to rate 10 or fewer candidates on several criteria. For example, creating a rating-vote ballot to rate 6 cars on price, safety, and performance.
A rating-vote ballot enables you to assess each candidate on a scale, such as 1 to 10. Voters can also weight the ratings for each item by rating the criteria themselves. For example, each voter rates the importance of price, safety, and performance.
You can create a ballot directly from a data-entry table in a form, such as the main data-entry table in a C&E Matrix. Voters can then rate each activity by importance to the customer based on specific criteria, and then display the average ratings in the form.
Only one person can vote at a time.
