Users can check on the details of the reviews for the tracked listings via the review categories in the Review Manager.
The system will display the reviews received from all marketplaces. Then from the All Marketplaces menu, users can choose to check on the reviews from a specific marketplace.

Only the listings that have been toggled on will display the following information:
-Date Received: The date when the system downloaded the product review to the Review Manager.
-Date Created: The date when the buyer left the review.
-Reviewer: the pen name of the reviewer
-Rating: the star ratings that the reviewer left.

The Review Tracker records any changes made to every product review.
By clicking on a changed review, users can see the original version of the review and the subsequent changes that were made to it. If buyers also uploaded product videos or images, users can see these.

Users can control whether the initial status of a new review should be "Open" or "Closed" based on the average rating.
For example, if the business strategy is that no action is needed for 3-star reviews, users can change the status to "Closed." All 3-star reviews received from Amazon after this setting is saved will be automatically marked as "Closed".
To set up the automation of the Review status, please visit Review Settings.
Through the Actions drop-down menu, users can perform the following actions:
- Contact Seller Support: Users can request to remove a controversial review.
- Add a note: Users can add notes to a specific review for future reference.
- Action Status: Users can mark a review as Pending Reply, Pending Resolved or closed in accordance with the user’s operation procedures.
Users can filter to define the review requirements and click download. A pop-up will inform users that the system can only download the first page of reviews from the search results to the CSV file.
