Hi there. Can you please help me understand how to accomplish the following?

I am trying to create a database at site #1 using the names and locations of the individuals listed at site #2.

#1) hidden link

#2) hidden link

The difference being, for #2, is I want each name or location to have a corresponding page rather than merely being listed in a row. On those pages corresponding to a name or location, I want any client to have the ability to rate the service they received by the counselor and/or by the location.

I would use a plugin for ratings like: hidden link

I also want all rating excerpts to be viewable at the respective location page.

The column titles would be first name, last name, location name, city, state, role.

The "role" will be: 1) counselor, officer, assistant director, director, VRE Service Director.

Hi,

I suggest you try this:
1) setup a custom post type "employees",
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/create-a-custom-post-type/

2) setup custom fields "first name, last name, location name, city, state, role" in above custom post type "employees":
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/using-custom-fields/

For field "location name", you can try with custom address field of Toolset Map plugin:
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/display-on-google-maps/#map-address-fields

For field "role", you can try with custom select field, with options:
counselor, officer, assistant director, director, VRE Service Director

3) Then you will be able to setup a view with custom search form, list all "employees" posts, and filter the result by above custom fields:
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/front-page-filters/

For the rating plugin "wp-product-review", I am not familiar with it, I suggest you check it with the plugin author of "wp-product-review/", check if it supports wordpress custom post type.

Luo,

Thank you so much for your feedback. I will give that a try to see how it works out! Let me know if you have additional feedback on best practices regarding implementation of a review plugin so uses can rate their experience.
