Using Ratings

The Ratingcomponent is used standalone or in conjunction with other Communities features. This component allows signed-in community members to express their opinions by rating content.

Adding a Rating to a Page

To add a Ratingcomponent to a page in author mode, locate the component Communities / Rating and drag it into place on a page, such as a position relative to the feature for members to rate.

For necessary information, visit Communities Components Basics.

When the required client-side libraries are included, this is how the Rating component will appear.
