The Rating field allows members to rate records for ranking and many other use cases.

Adding a Rating field

Click the + menu icon after the last column header or open the Column Menu by clicking on a column header's dropdown icon and then select "Add Field to the Right."

Select "Rating," and a window will open to configure the field. You can search the name for a quick find.

From Record View

The fastest way to add a field from an open Record View to is simply click the + sign next to a current field to add a new field below.

From the field customization settings, you can adjust the display format of the rating symbol and color (included in all SmartSuite plan types).

You can set the maximum rating using the Scale dropdown (options from 1 to 10). Next, you can customize the color and including rating labels to be displayed for the bottom and top range as needed.

The maximum number to rate will always display in grey and the color selected in the settings will be applied to the selected ratings. To adjust the rating value simply click on the appropriate number of rating symbols or type the corresponding number on your keyboard.

To clear the cell, click on the symbol of the current rating value, hit delete on your keyboard, or type 0.
