Continuing my series of posts about new features in Microsoft SharePoint 2010, I’d like to talk about content rating. This is a feature that was much demanded in MOSS 2007. So many people wanted it, that the code for content rating was included in the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 community kit.
Microsoft listened to the feedback about MOSS 2007 and have included this feature out of the box in SharePoint 2010. Now you can quickly and easily rate SharePoint content, discussions, documents and list items out of five and see the results of other people’s ratings displayed as a simple graphic.
It’s a simple click to provide your rating and now everyone can see what content is liked, as well as sorting and filtering by the average rating.
If you buy MOSS 2007 with Software Assurance now, you’ll get the upgrade rights to 2010 when it’s released. There’s no better time to buy!
