Document Rating in sharepoint 2010

Mar 17, 2010 at 8:55 AM


I have created a publishing site and added the rating site column to the document library.Whenever I upload a document I get a property window which allow me to rate the document.But when I rate it is not getting reflected in the site.When I change the rating setting "Allow users to rate this item" to "Yes" an error is displayed. Should we activate any other features in the site collection? I could not find any feature related to rating.

This is not related to my solution, this is the out of the box rating of SharePoint 2010. I'd recommend you to post your quesion on Technet :).

What happens if we use your rating tool in 2007, then upgrade to 2010?

This should be ok but my rating tool loses of its interest since their is an out of the box solution 2010. Otherwise, it should be compliant. The last time I tried it, it was 90% ok. The only thing that didn't work was the custom field type (the rendering wasn't ok) but I think it was a bug of the BETA so it should be fine with the RTM.
