A staff rating form is viewable on the page only when a customer is redirected to this page with the URL which contains the token. To test this, you should make an actual booking, and after that wait for the real reminder (don't use test notification).

This is an example of how the rating form page looks like:

4. Go to Settings > URL Settings. In the Rating page URL, set the URL of a page with a rating form (a page that you created at step 3).

5. Go to the Email Notifications section. Select Follow-up message template, or create a new one (type: Appointment reminder). Include the {staff_rating_url} code into automated email notification. This code will generate a unique link for a customer with the option to rate the service and leave a comment.
