The technology world is evolving daily, and so is Judge.me. With the aim to continuously enhance your app experience, we are excited to announce the launch of Judge.me's new widget version (Widget 3.0). In this version, we have redesigned our widgets to be more trendy, user-friendly, and better showcase your reviews with a new widget theme and various customizations.
So what’s inside Widget 3.0? Read on to learn more!
Widget 3.0 comes with a new theme called Slider, which displays your reviews in a slider of review cards. Customers can click on the arrows to move back and forth or click on each card to see the full review. The Slider theme is an excellent choice for stores that want to have a carousel-like widget that showcases reviews for a specific product.
In the meantime, we’ve also adapted our existing 3 themes (Default, Cards & Align) to the design of Widget 3.0.
If you have some informative reviews that best describe your customer experiences, it’s a good idea to “pin” them on top, so potential customers notice them at first glance. Our new “pin reviews” feature can help you do that simply by clicking on the “pin” option from the reviews dashboard. After being pinned, those reviews will be displayed on top, regardless of the filters your customers may choose.
With Widget 3.0, you can apply your brand palette to even more elements and make the whole widget more harmonized with your store theme. To do this, you can choose a primary color and secondary color:
Judge.me medals are awarded to stores as an indicator of transparency and authenticity. In Widget 3.0, you can add these medals to your Review Widget header, which further assures that your reviews are trustworthy. Medals are also visually attractive so that customers can acknowledge your trustworthiness at first glance.
Informing consumers about the review collection process helps you not only gain trust but also ensure that your business is compliant with related consumer laws such as the EU Consumer Protection Act.
In Widget 3.0, your widget header will include (by default) a link to our Authenticity page that explains everything about how your reviews are collected and verified by Judge.me. This feature is also available in existing Judge.me widgets (Widget 2.0) for you to turn on at your disposal.
You can choose your preferred border style in Widget 3.0 with just one click. The square corner brings you a clean and professional look, while the round corner is more friendly and playful. We'll apply your chosen style to widget containers, star rating bars, buttons, images, search input, etc.
Depending on your store design, you can decide whether to use standard pagination (1 2 3 4..) or a “Load More” button to display your reviews. The "Load More" button will be either square or round, depending on the border style setting. This feature is also available in existing Judge.me widgets (Widgets 2.0).
A good form design increases your chance of getting reviews. Therefore, we have rearranged the order of the form fields so that what matters more comes first:
Asking more questions beyond star ratings and reviews can help you get more insights from your customers. Our custom forms let you tailor the questions to your business needs. Now, this nifty feature comes with a new question type called Slider, where users can drag the scale to choose their desired value. This question type is more interactive and requires less customer effort since they don’t need to type or pick an exact number.
You can upgrade to Widget 3.0 with one click by going to Settings > Advanced > Advanced Settings > Widget Version, then click Upgrade to Widgets 3.0. If you have any questions, read our FAQs or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
