Article Votes & Ratings

User Feedback in the form of article votes and ratings help to know whether or not the support article met their needs.



When a user is done reading a support article, it should be trivial for them to immediately leave feedback on whether or not the support article met their needs. This feedback can quickly draw the attention of support teams to deficiencies in an article or user interface.

PHPKB knowledge base software allows the end-users to:

  • Vote an article and tell if it was helpful or not.
  • Rate an article on a scale of 1 to 5 stars.

PHPKB offers the voting feature on the knowledge base articles and get valuable feedback from your readers via a simple question: "Did you find this article helpful?" with the ability to vote with a YES or NO. The simple like/dislike feedback mode gives you a clear, quick picture of user response.
