Rating Feature for Sharepoint 2010 Document Library
In 2010 a new feature is introduced for rating the documents in doc library..I will explain here how to rate the documents and what are things we need to set to get this feature...
Open the Document library(here my library name is BOOKS) which you want to set the rating feature.
Go for Doc Library Settings-->Rating Settings-->Select Yes under "Allow items in this list to be rated
Then you will find the rating column in your document library as follows
Give Rating to the Docs(select the rating Stars.) You will notice that the rating will be applied.But upon refreshing the page ,the applied rating will be disappear.
This is due to By default the Timer Job(Social Rating Syncronization) related to this service is set to run for every hour. Instead if you want to change to minutes/some other you have to change the settings as follows
Central AdministrationàMonitoringàSelect Review Job Definations
In that Select User Profile Service Application-Social Rating Synchronization Job
Then you will be navigated to the Timer Job Edit page
In Recurring Schedule section "This timer job is scheduled to run " Hourly by default. Change it to minutes (here i kept it to 2 mins)
Click on Run Now Button
Now go back to your document library and give rating to a document
