    Average rating on stars field

    Asked by dcboswell on May 24, 2015 at 02:44 PM

    Hi,

     

    I found a post from back in 2011 where someone asked if it were possible to display an average star rating on their website. At the time of the request, the only way was to export the ratings into Excel and select all the cells to get the average.  A JotForm support person said they were submitting a request for that feature but wouldn't know when it would be implemented. I wanted to see if that ability is now available since its been 4 years since the request was made.

    I think it would be awesome to be able to use JotForm as a website review platform.

    Thanks,

    Daniel Boswell

    Jonathan,

    What I'm trying to do is create a rating system on my website. I want to use a form that lets visitors rate our products, but then I want a way to display the average rating of all the submissions on the website. I'd would also need a way to display the reviews people leave on the website.

    The advantage of using Jotform over a WordPress plugin is I can connect to our Infusionft account and tag people who submit a review.

    Is there some way to accomplish what I want?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to display the average rating of all the submissions on the website. It is only possible to rate a product as my colleague has already explained and gave you demo form.

    If you want to display the reviews people leave on the form the only way to achieve that is to use the Grid Listing or HTML Table Listing Report to create something similar to a comment box.

    Inside of this thread you can see how to do it:

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
