Tally is an abstract class providing a standard method of collecting feedback from members on how they value specific products and services. Anonymous feedback is not supported. The site visitor must register and sign in to participate and sign in to change their feedback. The requirement to sign in facilitates moderation and enhances the value of the feedback by preventing multiple posts.
A custom tally component can be created by extending the abstract tally class.
