Add the widget to the canvas
Many websites either rate, or allow users to rate products, services and more. In fact, crowdsourced ratings are one of the great benefits websites can offer their visitors. The Ratings widget allows you to include these ratings in your site.
The Rating widget displays a visual representation of ranking. Most commonly stars are used for these rankings, but the Rating widget allows you to use icons from the icon library or uploaded SVG images.
Jaime owns an online jewelry store. They want to introduce a new feature that will allow customers to rank each piece of jewelry according to how good a value the jewelry is and how the significant other reacted when they received the jewelry.
Instead of using stars for their ratings, Jaime decides to use dollar signs for the value rating and hearts for their reaction rating. In addition, they decide to value will be ranked 1-5, while the reaction will be ranked 1-10.
