Adding a Custom Review Site

You can connect to most review sites, even if they aren’t already listed as a third-party review site in Podium. While you’ll still be able to add a custom site to your review invitations, you won’t be able to see or respond to reviews submitted directly in Podium. Please note that you can only connect one custom review site.

To connect a custom review site, you’ll need to find the URL for the site’s review page, then manually enter it in Podium using the instructions provided. Two common custom sites are WebMD and Glassdoor. We’ve included examples of how to find their review page URLs. The process will be similar for most sites.
