Enabling and Disabling Ratings

Rating is enabled by default for your organization, but can be turned on and off:

1. Click the More menu in the upper right corner of the screen and select Account. 

2. To remove all rating functionality, uncheck the Enable Voting box. This will not delete any existing rating data, so you can turn it off and back on and all of the the previous ratings and scores will still be there.

3. Click Update Profile.

How to Rate a Submission

1. In the Submissions tab, click the name of the submission you'd like to rate.

2. In the Submission Details page, you will see 3 rating option buttons 

at the upper right-hand side of the page: yes, maybe, and no. To submit a rating, simply click on the applicable button. If you have already rated the submission, the button you selected will be highlighted.  After at least one rating has been submitted, the submission will be given a score. Level 4 and 5 team members will see the current score in a circle at the top left part of the page.

Rating and User Permissions

Levels 1-2:

Lower level team members (levels 1-2) may rate any of their assigned submission, but will only be able to see their own ratings. In the submissions list, an icon in the far left column allows them to quickly see which submissions they have already rated.

Level 3:

Level 3 team members may rate any of their assigned submissions and see all team members' ratings for those assigned submissions. They can see an overall "score" for each submission based upon the current rating totals. This score appears in the submissions list and can be used to sort the list using the "+/-" header link. The score is also visible in the Submission Details view.

If you click on the score in either view, you will see the list of team members, their ratings, and the current and average scores.

Levels 4 and 5:

Level 4 and 5 team members may rate any submission and see all team members' ratings for any submission. They see an overall "score" for each submission based upon the current rating totals. This score appears in the submissions list and can be used to sort the list using the "+/-" header link. The score is also visible in the Submission Details view.

If you click on the score in either view, you will see the list of team members, their ratings, and the current and average scores.

HOW SCORES ARE CALCULATED

Scoring is a simple calculation:

  • Each "yes" rating = +1
  • Each "no" rating = -1
  • Each "maybe" rating = 0

We add up all of the rating values for a submission to determine the total score. If a submission has not received at least one rating, it does not have a score.
