Be able to manually add reviews to the All-In-One-Reviews + premoderation

I love the All-In-One-Reviews but I think it would be even better if the functionality of the testimonials slider (where you add your own "manual" reviews) could be integrated in to the All-In-One-Reviews as well. Please vote if you agree :)

By allowing the buyer to post a review directly through this app but also giving the app owner the option to Approve or reject before going live, my customers can feel confident that their review is in their own words (typos and all) and will be posted upon approval of said review.

    This would be a big help. Since the review widget will not connect to sites like Angi, I could manually add the reviews to my clients websites.

    This would be a fantastic addition and is needed to cover off review webites or portals that are not intergrated already with ElfSight.

    Hi Phil,

    Thanks a lot for your comment and for describing your use case!

    I'm truly sorry that we haven't released this option yet, although it's a really popular one.

    The good news is that this feature is included in the pipeline and we expect it to be released within this year. Hopefully, our dev team will be able to release it much sooner, but everything depends on their overall load.

    We're really sorry for all the inconvenience and we do thank you for your understanding 🙏🏻

    For those that leave reviews in guest books at holiday properties as well as on TripAdvisor et al, this would be a brilliant addition to complete the picture for those reading up about a place before making a booking. Please add this, it has been a request for some time now.

    Hi Vincent and James,

    Thanks a lot for your comments!

    I totally understand your point and agree that adding reviews manually would be a very handy option. Our dev team will do their best to think over the possibilities, and I do believe they will manage to release this feature in one of the future updates.

    Thank you very much for helping us :)

    Hi Helga,

    What I am saying is:
    We really want to be able to add the exisiting reviews to our AirBnb, Google reviews etc.. so they all come up rather than having 2 separate ones if that makes sense. I love the All in One Widget - just would be great to have our own inputtable one with our logo so its obvious it direct and people can still differentiate where the reviews have come from.
    If we use the slider then it wont have the other reviews automatically added to it. This is one of the things I love about the all in one along with the floating widget ��� it also adds authenticity.
    Thank you
    James

    Hi Olga,

    This way around is of course doable, but you know even better than us that the true power of a review display add-on is its "official" feel. Plus, adding 2 widgets won't work.


    Adding a free-writing field for reviews posted elsewhere than the websites you already link to is essential.


    And you gave the technical idea yourself, just implement the Testimonial Slider Widget routine to our plugin and the trick is done ;)


    Best regards,


    Vincent

    Dear folks,

    Thanks a lot for your comments!

    James, I do understand your point and I'm truly sorry that we don't support such a needed feature yet.

    However, maybe our Testimonials Slider widget could work for you? This widget lets you add any reviews you need along with other information you'd love to display.

    You're welcome to check the widget out here - https://elfsight.com/testimonials-slider-widget/.

    And if any assistance needed, feel free to contact us 🙂

    Being able to add our own reviews and use our direct icon is essential - people always leave reviews on emails - by replying even though we ask them to say leave them on google or facebook, we also have lots from our guest books we used to leave out. Please please please add the option to allow manual reviews with our compnaies logo - that way people can see they have come directly and so can differentiate.

    I agree and we must be able to upload our own icon
