How to request a review update from a customer

Don't see the blue button?

If you don't see the blue button to request an update, click on the three dots on the far right of the review row and you should see it there.

No option to request an update?

If Fera does not give you an option to request an updated review it usually means that the customer did not provide valid contact information.

Reviews imported from other systems or synced from Facebook, Google, etc, can't be updated so you won't see the option for those.

Why ask customers to update their reviews?

  1. It lets you turn negative reviews into positive ones

  2. It retains your "verification" status.

  3. It lets you minimize negative reviews that bring down your rating scores

What happens after I request an update?

After you request an update from a customer the review will go into the "pending update" status.

How to see reviews waiting on customers to update
