Ranking question with option to selectively rank or not rank

I'd like to program a question where respondents can rank as many response items as they wish but also have an option to not rank any items. Is there a way to include that as an option in a ranking-style question in ssi-web?

Ranking questions in SSI Web v8 have a "Number of Items to Rank" section underneath their "Settings" tab.  If you select "Range" in this section, you can define a minimum and maximum number of items to permit respondents to rank.  Does this suit your needs?

That's good to know thanks. Is there a way to have a separate response option respondents could select if they "regard all items as equally ranked" on the same question page?
"Not Applicable" from the Community Question Library could probably be used for this:

I imagine this question could still be useful pre-v9.  What version of SSI Web are you running?
