Rating assets helps your users quickly find those that are popular and often used so they can use them, too. If you enable the Rate Assets permission, users will see a five-star rating icon in the thumbnail of assets in search results. They can select a rating from one to five stars, and the ratings component will reflect the new average rating in real time. They can change their previous rating by selecting a new number of stars.

Note that you should also enable the Rate Assets feature from the Features page in order for ratings to display.

Rate assets from search results, Quick View, and on the Asset Details page.


Users without the Rate Assets permission can view average asset ratings but cannot rate assets. Collections cannot be rated.

Filter Search Results

Search results can be filtered by assets that are rated zero through five stars from the Refine Search area. Selecting two stars filters for assets that are rated 2.0 to 2.99. Users can filter for multiple ratings in the same search.


Embed Ratings
When the Embed Ratings into XMP Fields feature is enabled (also on the Features page), ratings can be mapped directly to an asset's metadata field when the asset is downloaded from your Widen Collective site. You can disable the feature by clicking the star next to "Ratings are set to embed automatically" on the Embed Metadata page under Order Settings in the left navigation of the Admin app or from the Features page.
