Configuration Specific Information 

  • When you use labels only, the rating scale will always be displayed as a dropdown list.
  • You will not be able to display ratings using stars or circles, it will default to a dropdown list if configuring this option.
    • By default, when using circle or star ratings, the value will be "hidden" (Only show when hovering over the circles/stars).  The only exception to this would be in the Other's Rating Tab for that section, which will still show the value.
