Ratings and reviews in practice

In the Web App or the Mobile App, an item's rating appears below the item title. Attendees click 'Rate Now', and add a star rating.

  • If written reviews are active, attendees can also write a review for the item.

  • If anonymous reviews are active, attendees can click the 'Rate anonymously' toggle to hide their information from the review.
