Welcome to The Newsfeed! This article will help users get started with a Newsfeed and will cover the following topics:

Create a Newsfeed

  1. Within 'Share', select the Newsfeeds from the dropdown

  2. Select Create Newsfeed in the top right corner


3. Name your Newsfeed before moving on to select the content for your feed.

4. Select the desired searches and tags to add to your feed.
5. By clicking on 'update' you will be able to see the desired searches on the left-hand side. If you are happy with the selected searches or tags select 'Next' to continue.

6. Include/exclude articles by selecting or deselecting articles and Preview your Newsfeed in the left pane. Documents present in the left pane will show on your feed.


7. Edit your Settings and determine what parts of the documents will display in your feed. If you turn on 'Automatically Include New Articles' you will automatically add new documents to the feed. If you deselect 'Automatically Include New Articles' you will need to manually add additional documents via this page in the future.

8. Click on 'Done' to continue.


After you have selected 'Done,' a new window will pop up providing you with your Feed Link. This link can be shared with your intranet or website manager to be added onto your desired page.

If you would like to adjust the design template for your newsfeed, this can either be done by your website manager with the feed link or please reach out to our team via Live Chat within the Help button with the design details. Our team will customize the design using HTML within the 'Advanced' tab.
