Subscribe to a New Feed

To get started with an RSS feed; click the Workspace button on the main toolbar, then select Root from the tree view. This will display a list of your RSS Feeds.

Click a specific RSS Feed in the Root folder to view the contents of that feed.

Subscribe to a New Feed

This can be accomplished two different ways:

  1. Click New Feed from the left tree view, or
  2. Click the New icon from the actions toolbar.

Adding a feed requires two pieces of information:

  • Name - Enter a friendly name for the feed. Typically, you'll want to make this a short name so you can easily find it. You can use a backslash character to make the feed appear in a subdirectory, such as in News\Fox News or Technology\Microsoft Updates.
  • URL - The feed URL must be entered exactly as it is written in the web site you want to track. Some sites do not offer RSS, and those that do usually have a link from their web site to the RSS feed. Some sample RSS feeds can be found in the help topic Sample Feeds.
