The Mentors Rating feature allows mentees to select one to five stars to rate a mentor they have had a connection with, as well as add comments. Mentor ratings are cumulative; as multiple mentees rate the mentor, the number of stars on their profile (only visible to admins) will show the average of all mentee ratings.
This feature is available only by request. Please reach out to you Customer Success team member for consultation to determine if the feature would be a good fit for your program.
Why it matters: This feature allows enables admins can track mentor quality based on ratings. This can be helpful in ascertaining any issues with the quality of mentoring being provided by a mentor and indicate a need for further training or intervention.
Please note: An admin cannot remove a rating provided by a mentee. If there is concern about a rating, please create a ticket for our Support Team to remove the rating.
At the close of a connection, an email will be sent to the mentee to rate the mentor. A mentee can rate their mentor by hovering over the mentor's name on the 'Members' tile on the right of the Connection Plan page. This opens the mentor's profile summary which includes an 'Actions' button with a dropdown option to 'Provide a rating':
Upon clicking to 'Provide a rating', the mentee can select 1 to 5 stars to rate the mentor, as well as leave useful comments:
A user can provide multiple reviews of the same mentor if needed for example, to provide individual ratings per coaching session.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can mentors and coaches see their own ratings? Are they aware they are being rated?
Only the admin sees all ratings and therefore, can investigate further to ascertain whether a low rating indicates mentor training needed, or is a result of some other issue in the relationship.
Does this work for a self-match system where mentees can see mentor ratings before sending a request?
No. This is built for a workflow where connections are created by admins, as an aid to creating the right engagements.
Will ratings disappear if the feature is 'Mentors Rating' turned off?
Yes. You will no longer be able to view mentor ratings once the feature is turned off. However, if you create a user view that contains the ratings fields, you can download the report to save the ratings and descriptions before turning off the feature.
