Ratings Block

This is some text inside of a div block.

This article explains the features of the Ratings block and how it can be used to design your app.

Ratings Block is used for:

  1. Selecting ant one option from a pre-defined set of values.
  2. Making specific blocks appear as the user selects an option.

Editing the Ratings block

Click on the block and configure it by editing on the right panel.


The label is the name of the block that the end user sees in the app.

Example: Cleanliness in the site during survey. 


The description is the additional information provided to the end user which will be displayed below the input area.

Example: 1 being the least and 5 being the highest. 

This is how the Ratings block with the label and the description will look to the end user.

Select emojis and their corresponding values
