The EmbedReviews app allows you to easily import your current reviews that you have saved in a spreadsheet or reviews you have downloaded from third-party platforms. Once you do this, you can display them in a widget on your responsive website builder.

To import reviews, you will need to make sure your reviews are structured in a spreadsheet according to the following guidelines:

Import reviews file specification

The Reviews Import tool accepts data in comma-separated values (CSV) file format. The first row of the template or data file contains column headings. Each subsequent row corresponds to a custom review that needs to be imported.

You can upload a maximum of 500 reviews in one file. Download the template file here.

Columns:

name, review_date, rating, review_text, email, tags, custom_link, reviewer_photo_url
  • name: Reviewer name

  • review_date: You can choose the date format

  • rating: Number 1 – 5

  • review_text: Review text

  • email: Reviewer email

  • tags: Review tags, comma-separated

  • custom_link: Individual Review link. This link will take precedence over the source link

  • reviewer_photo_url: Reviewer photo URL

Required columns are name, review_date, and rating. The other columns may be empty, but they must be comma-separated
