Right now MusicBee offers Album Rating field but it only shows rating in stars. How can I show the rating in numbers (0-100) calculated from average ratings of the album's tracks?

I swear there was a guide here on how to do that, but I can't find it through search anymore.

Anybody?  :(

I just can't find this bloody guide that was here. I believe you have to create a virtual tag if I'm not mistaked but I'm so bad at those.

Somebody help, please.  :(

If you have the option "auto-calculate album rating" ticked under Preference> Tags (1), <Album Rating> field is already a numerical value out of 100. To display the number, you only need to create a virtual field using the simple formula "<Album Rating>" and add the virtual field to the main panel.

Oh finally! Thank you redwing!!  ;D ;D

Do you think there is a possibility to implement this new Virtual Tag (I named it Album Score, you can see on the top right of the screenshot) more in the library view?  The Album Score column, I would like to see groupings of 50-60, 60-70, 70-80 and so on. Is that possible?

1. Go to Preferences> Layout (1)> Configure Fields
2. Find the virtual tag you created for album rating ("Album Score" in your case) and change its data type from "String" to "Number"
3. Define another virtual field "Album Range" using the following formula (note that this formula should use your own virtual tag label, "Album Score" in this case):

$If(<Album Score>=-1,"No Rating",$If(<Album Score>>10,$If(<Album Score>>20,$If(<Album Score>>30,$If(<Album Score>>40,$If(<Album Score>>50,$If(<Album Score>>60,$If(<Album Score>>70,$If(<Album Score>>80,$If(<Album Score>>90,91-100,81-90),71-80),61-70),51-60),41-50),31-40),21-30),11-20),0-10))

4. Add "Album Range" to column browser for grouping.

Thank you very much, redwing!!!

This is really valuable information. Have you considered adding this into the wiki?
