Importing News from a Feed

News imported from a feed is copied into your group and behaves like any other news story in the system.
  • From the LiveWhale interface, click the “News” tab. (If the News tab does not appear, the administrator has not assigned the news module to you.)
  • Click the “Import From Feed” link beneath the tab bar.
  • To list news in a feed, enter the feed url in the text field labeled “Enter a feed url” and click the “Go” button.

If feeds have been recently entered, they will appear in a box labeled “Recent Feeds” which can be clicked on for a shortcut to list news from that feed.

If a valid feed is entered, the feed’s contents will be listed with their linked headline, date, and summary.

Check off the news items you wish to import. Select “Link to stories” from the “With checked items…” dropdown menu and then click the “Go” button. The stories you selected will be imported. Use the “select all” link to select all items in the list.

The news manager is divided into sections, accessible by the links beneath the tab bar: News, Archive, Import From Feed, and Find News.

For information on managing news, please see “Managing news”.

For information on the news archive, please see “Managing archived news”.

For information on the Find News feature, please see “Finding shared news”.
