Staff reviews can be added to the product pages of individual titles by either submitting a form, or using the provided check box on a book list. This field can also be used to enter information such as a book video, sale information, etc. Preorder Badges can be displayed on titles that are 'Coming Soon'.
Staff reviews can be added to all books and are especially useful when creating ‘Staff Pick’ pages.
Staff Reviews can be added two ways:
Navigate to: www.yoursitename.com/book/ISBN (or use the search feature to navigate to the book product page)
NOTE: Disable the 'Is Staff Pick?' button to remove the staff pick graphic if you are using this field to enter information such as a book video, sale information, etc., but don't necessarily want it labeled a 'Staff Pick'.
Navigate to: Content > Add Content > Page (or content of choice or if it is an existing book list navigate to that page)
A CSV file of staff reviews can be uploaded to your site and the new interface allows you to easily manage existing reviews. The upload will add the review to the Staff Reviews section on book product pages. Reviews added through a book list can only be edited by looking up the original piece of content (Page, Book Page, or Event) to which they belong.
UPLOAD A FILE
Navigate to: Content > Manage Staff Reviews > Staff Reviews Bulk Upload
Specifications for the file upload:
A CSV template is provided for download to assist in preparing the file.
A confirmation message will display once the file has been uploaded.
Navigate to: Content > Manage Staff Reviews
The displayed results can be filtered by ISBN, Reviewed By, Review Text Contains and the Review Created Date.
NOTE: Files that include ISBNs with previous reviews will not replace existing reviews, a new review will be added to the ISBN.
