    Hi @Bob

    I'm loving this addon. I'm not using a lot of its features, basically using it just for reviews which is working well.

    I'd like to know if the following can be achieved. When a user leaves a review, it does not change the 'Updated' date/timestamp. I guess that only gets updated if the Item gets an update.

    1 - Can this be changed to accept an updated timestamp from the latest user review?
    2 - If no to above, how would I best remove the Updated field?

    As a side suggestion, if you are only allowing Rating stars with a review, (as I am) the votes should be removed from the star count, as they will always report the exact same number as the amount of reviews :)

    See below for my implementation of Showcase.

    Hey Rob..

    You could add code to the DataWriter that would trigger an update query to set a new timestamp on the item update field. There is a bit more involved tho because of the Read Marking system (which is driven off the item data fields), so that would also need to be taken into consideration. Are you a developer? (don't want to talk above or below your skill level so figured I'd ask first before going too deep or not deep enough)

    Hi Bob,

    Unfortunately that would be above my level of skill :)

    Thanks though :)

    I'll check with a couple of the upcoming developers to see if they would be interested in helping you. This would be the perfect project for someone that is wanting to learn.
