Rate or vote on a webpage or blog post on a portal

Ratings provides users with the ability to rate or vote on a webpage or blog post. Ratings can also be enabled for comments on pages or blog posts. By default, this feature is disabled and can be enabled on a page-by-page basis within Dynamics 365.

Ratings are custom Dynamics 365 activities and thus can be used in the same way as any other activity such as emails, phone calls, and so on. Because Ratings are activities, it is possible,with customization, to have ratings appear for any entity you choose that appears and is rendered on the portal, including custom entities.

  1. Login to Dynamics 365.
  2. Navigate to Portals.
  3. Click Web Pages.

  5. Set Enable Ratings to Yes.
  6. Click Save & Close.

Use ratings

For webpages that have page ratings enabled and the developer has applied the control to the template, users can rate the page either by using the rating scale or voting, depending on the type chosen when the control was added to the page template.
