Using Voting

The Voting component is a useful tool that allows community members to rate a particular piece of content, such as an answer within a QnA component. With the Voting component, members select up or down arrows to indicate their opinion.

Adding Voting to a Page

To add a Voting component to a page in author mode, use the component browser to locate Communities / Voting and drag it into place on a page, such as a position relative to the feature for users to vote on.

For necessary information, visit Communities Components Basics.

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