Using content rating in message boards

The Message board and Group message board web parts have the content rating features embedded. This enables live site users to submit a rating along with a comment posted to the message board. To allow content rating features of these web parts, configure the following properties:

  • Enable content rating - if selected, the content rating features of the web part are enabled.
  • Rating type - specifies the appearance of the web part. You can select Stars, Radio buttons or Drop-down list.
  • Max rating value - specifies the size of the rating scale. For example, if 7 is entered rating is possible on a scale from 1 to 7

When leaving a board message, the system displays the rating control (determined by the Rating type property) above the Name field. Users can select their rating and after sending the message, the rating is applied.
