  3. On the right side, below the large star rating are "More Rating Reports" Click on the "Distribution of Stars Reports"
  4. On this report you will see a count of the star ratings that reviewers have left the company. On the right side of the box the number is linked. For example 3/211 In this example the 3 is linked. Click on the number.
  5. Clicking on the number brings up the ratings and reviews for that company with that specific rating.
