Now Rate and Review extensions on Marketplace!

As the number of extensions on the Visual Studio Marketplace grew, we felt the need to have a mechanism to provide feedback and easily differentiate extensions. Today we are glad to announce a Rating and Review system on the Marketplace as the first step in fulfilling that need.

The rating for an extension will appear on its tile as well as on the extensions details page. Clicking on the rating in the details page will take you to the ratings and reviews section on the page, from where you can submit a review.

Currently only logged in users can review an extension and you can also edit it at any point. If you find any issue with a review, we provide a mechanism for you to report it to us. At which point we will look into the review and take action if necessary.

There are a number of additional improvements coming in this space as well. For instance, the ability to incorporate feedback from other sources and providing in-product experiences for submitting a review.

Do visit the Marketplace to check out the new feature and tell us all about your favorite extensions!
