Description: Rating Settings in SharePoint

Quite a nifty little feature in SharePoint is the rating settings. If you have a library where you would like the users to rate the content, this is the way to go!

To configure these settings, go to the Library Tab > Library Settings. Click on Rating Settings:
Rating Settings 5

Here you’ll be able to choose to switch on the settings and what you’d like it to display as. Rating stars or Likes. SharePoint will calculate the average ratings click for all users.

And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
