In some instances, you may find that your Newsletters would benefit from having articles hand selected from various sources rather than an automated search. Curated Feeds allow you full control to individually select articles for including in your Topics and Newsletters. We suggest using Curated Feeds when you want 100% control over the content you make available to your users.
Create a Curated Feed
New Curated Feeds can be created from the Sources page, using the Add an Article Source action drop down.
You will name your feed and have the option to add a description.
Once created, you will be taken to the details view of the new Curated Feed.
Connecting a Curated Feed to a Topic and Newsletter
On the Curated Feed's details page, you can opt to add it to a Topic or a new or existing Newsletter using the Source Actions drop down.
Note that when you add any Source to a Topic, you first create a Vable Search, as only Vable Searches can be added to Topics. This is a simple action and only requires you to enter a title for your Vable Search and activate it.
Add content to your Curated Feeds
Curated Feeds may be populated either with articles already in the platform's database or by uploading items located outside the platform.
Upload Items to the Platform
You can also include documents, such as PDFs and Word files, as well as articles that you find on the internet and wish to add directly to Vable.
From the details view of a Curated Feed, select Upload Article. The popup window will give you the option to upload a file or a URL. Include a title and, optionally, a summary and finalize the Upload.
From Searches and Topics
To handpick articles from a search of the Articles page or while reviewing the results within a Topic, click on the three vertical dots icon to the right of an article title and select Add to curated feed.
You will then see a list of existing Curated Feeds from which you can select one or more before finalizing the step by clicking Add to Selected in the top right of your window.
View and Edit Your Curated Feed
You can easily locate your existing Curated Feeds on the Sources page using the Types filter and selecting "Curated Feeds".
Click on the title of any Curated Feed to be taken to the details view.
Note: Curated Feeds are available on InfoPro Professional and InfoPro Enterprise subscriptions. For more information, please contact your account manager.
