Bamboo Rating and Custom Identifier columns are now available for use on SharePoint 2013. With Bamboo Custom Columns, you can expand the capabilities of SharePoint as easily as adding a new column to a list or library.
With Bamboo Rating, you can let users rate items, lists, and even pages through any one of several different UI choices:

10-Point Rating Scale

Detailed Statistics When Hovering

10-Point Rating Scale
Unlike SharePoint Server, where you have to wait up to an hour to view the latest statistics, Bamboo Rating updates the statistics immediately.
Support Across All Lists and Libraries
Bamboo Rating is simply another column type you can choose from when adding columns to any List or Library, including our popular video management library SharePoint Video Library.
Rate Site Pages
Simply add a new column to the Site Pages library, then add the Bamboo Rating Web Part to the individual pages in the library. Bamboo Rating Web Part will display the Rating control right on the Site Page.
Filter and Sort Based on Rating Columns
Filter and sort based on Bamboo Rating columns. Quickly view the highest rated or most popular items by filtering, grouping, and sorting based on the current average rating or the number of ratings submitted.
Allow Anonymous or Authenticated Ratings
Define if users must be authenticated (only one rating per user, but can be updated anytime) or anonymous (users can rate many times).
Allow Individual Item Ratings to be Reset
Uploaded a new version of a document or modified a site page? Need a new set of rating data? With Bamboo Rating, define which users have the ability to reset individual item ratings.
With Custom Identifier Column, you get an easy way to create customizable unique identifiers for items using any combination of text, lookups, dates, site names, and more:
Custom Identifier Feature
