Enabling the Ratings feature in SharePoint Communication sites
The ratings feature in SharePoint allows users to rate and provide feedback on list items, enhancing collaboration and decision-making within teams. While this feature is available by default in SharePoint Team sites, it is not enabled by default in Communication sites. However, if you wish to utilize the ratings feature in a list of a Communication site, you can enable it using PowerShell.
In this article, I’m showing you how to enable the ratings feature in Communication sites using PnP PowerShell.
- Install PnP PowerShell (if you already have it proceed to step 2) – You can install it using the following command in PowerShell:
Install-Module -Name SharePointPnPPowerShellOnline -Force
- Connect to your SharePoint Communication site, launch PowerShell and connect to using the following command:
Connect-PnPOnline -Url https://<yourtenant>.sharepoint.com/sites/<yoursite> -Interactive
Replace <yourtenant> with your SharePoint Online tenant name and <yoursite> with the name of your Communication site.
- To enable the ratings feature in your Communication site, execute the following PowerShell command:
Enable-PnPFeature -Identity 915c240e-a6cc-49b8-8b2c-0bff8b553ed3 -Scope Site
This command will enable the ratings feature in the specified communication site. The feature GUID 915c240e-a6cc-49b8-8b2c-0bff8b553ed3 represents the ratings feature.
