2 new cool features that you will love!
Updated: Aug 17, 2022
This week we introduce 2 new features (and a small change) in the Hoodin platform and we are confident that you will find all three of them valuable for your Hoodin intelligence project. The features are:
RSS with links to articles at original source
Report filtered on tags
The small change - archived articles
Feature 1 - RSS with links to original articles
Intelligence and insights happen when information is shared to the right people, in the right format. Besides creating RSS feeds that link back to the article within your Hoodin project, you may now also create a second RSS feed (URL) where the articles in the feed directs back to the article at the original source.
This is how you may benefit from this feature
Content marketing | News hub | Knowledge hub - One of the great things with RSS feeds is that you may use it in many ways. You could add it as an element on a web page, hence you would create a news feed that anyone could take part of! Check out this example that we created to visualise what a page with an RSS feed from a Hoodin project may look like. https://www.hoodin.com/medtech-marketnews
Another alternative is that you could add the RSS feed to a Slack or MS teams channel. Check out this Slack channel that has the same RSS hooked up to it: https://hoodin.slack.com/archives/C03STRP738F
Either way, what you achieve is a relevant and nisched media / channel that is a versatile tool to use. You may use it to spread knowledge internally with your peers, or externally to show customers or other stakeholders that you are the knowledge leader and also kind enough to share your insights :)
Setting up an RSS feed that links back to the original article is very simple.
Go to https://app.hoodin.com/ and login.
Select one of your monitoring feeds and make sure there are some articles being selected. Your RSS feed only contains articles that you have selected.
Click on the three dots icon on the right side of the monitoring feed name (see picture above)
Opt-in for the alternative to create an RSS feed with direct links and copy the URL that is generated.
Paste the RSS URL to where ever you wish to use it. If you are uncertain about how you may view an RSS feed at a website or how to add it to Slack or MS Teams, google on the name of the service or CSM that you use + add RSS feed.
Feature 2 - Filter reports on tags
In fact, what you will meet is a completely re-designed view for the report settings. The steps to follow when creating a report are:
Name the report
Select what use case or monitoring feeds you wish to include in the report
Filter on tags to limit the report content to the articles that are related to the selection of tags. You may also chose to filter only on tags. That way you get all content from all monitoring feeds that is related to the chosen tag(s).
The options to create a single or recurring report (with subscribers) are still at the bottom of the settings for reports.
The benefit from being able to filter on tags is that you may create alternative reports based on your tagging logics. Perhaps you have created a tag based upon a group of recipients / a team such as R&D or product managers. Then this is a perfect tag to use for a report that these people need.
Last but not least we have a minor change. Archived articles are now found via the three dots. See picture below. The change also includes that archived articles (the content you decide not to use) are still stored.
We hope you enjoy these new features and feel free to contact us if you have any questions on how to make the best value out of your Hoodin project.
