Passing dynamic field values to Survey add-on ratings field

Looking to dynamically populate a rating field with a value from the query string. I’m hosting w/ WPengine but have the URL excluding from their caching.

It doesn’t seem to be populating the field. I have the "Allow field to be populated dynamically " option selected on the field and have a “Parameter Name” defined.

Is there anything special I need to request of them to make this work beyond excluding the URL from their cache
or
is this not known to work with these ratings field types?
help please.

you can remove this topic. I figured this out.
