After customers submit reviews in the Product Review Form, you have to moderate them to decide which reviews to publish on your website.
The Moderation Card
The moderation card is made up of 3 sections:
The sidebar is located on the left side of the review card. It contains details about the product and the customer and their status ( Verified user or Unverified ).
The Review Card contains all the main review information including the rating, title, and text as well as the Profanity alert.
The toolbar is located on the right side of the review card. It contains actions that can be taken on the review, you can control the statuses of reviews and you can reject or publish the reviews.
If you publish a review, it will be shown publicly in the Review Widgets, otherwise, it won't be visible on your website.
The reviews have one of the following statuses:
Pending: No action has been taken by the moderator and it requires attention. A pending review is not visible in your Review Widgets.
Published: The review is approved to be published and is currently visible in your on your website if you have implemented a Review Widget.
Rejected: The review is rejected and won’t be visible on your website.
