RSS Feeds

RSS Feeds is a one-stop solution if you consume new content and updates from specific websites that you follow. With the RSS Feeds Dashboard on Zoho Social, you can curate a stream of new content which you like to read delivered straight to you, and publish them seamlessly to your social media channels, all from one screen.
Let's look at how to create a new RSS feed on Zoho Social.
1. Click on the Posts tab on your dashboard.
2. Now, click on   RSS Feeds under Content Library.

3. Click on the +New Feed button on the top right corner to set up a new feed.

4. Type in the name of the Website or Paste the feed link in the search bar. You can also upload a .OPML/.XML file to get started and hit the Add button to add that source as  a new feed.

You can add upto 10 Feeds if you're on our Professional Plan, and upto a maximum of 20 feeds if you are on a Premium, Agency, or an Agency Plus Plan.
You can also mark articles as 'read' using the Mark as Read feature to clear all content, so the next time you visit the RSS tab, you will be notified with a new set of content that the website updates with. To do so,
1. Hover on the article you want to mark as read and click on the checkbox on the top left corner.
2. Now select the articles you wish to mark as read and click on the double-tick favicon on the top.

How to customize your Feed content using the 'Edit preference' option

On each individual feed, you can set up a desired text prefixing the post URL and a suffix (hashtags, for instance) which is auto-populated when you try publishing/scheduling any content from that feed. For example: Adding the text "Check out our new blog." prefixing any post that goes our from your website feed.
To customize your Feed content,
1. Hover over the feed name you have added to edit your preference and click on the gear icon (Feed Preferences).
2. Choose your channel preference by simply selecting or deselecting your chosen social channels and giving in the prefix text you want to include in your posts.
3. Finally, fill in the suffix with the hashtags or other content of your choice to complete your post.
