Most Requested Feature Ever: Custom Reviews and Rankings


Over the weekend, Emily and her team released custom reviews. This has been our most requested feature. We’ve been working on it for almost a year. We’re pretty pumped.

What’s it do?

Custom reviews enables you to create fully customized surveys and ratings around submissions, applications, entries, or hires. It works for peer reviews, scoring entries or applications or just getting nuanced information about your content or films. You can drag and drop any type of question, drop-down, check-box, or radio button for enabling any type of rating around the submission.


The biggest use-case for Custom Reviews is to create numeric or more robust ratings, for example 1-5 or Excellent to The Worst Ever.  (Previously we just had a simple thumbs up/thumbs down.) With Custom Reviews, you can also add multiple rankings, so, for example, you can rate something by context, narrative, strength of grammar or artistic merit, essentially anything.
In the following video, Asta shows you how it works:

Also, here’s a help document on the subject.
Thanks! Let us know if you have any problems or questions.
