Background

Many sites with regularly updated content provide an RSS feed to help users stay up to date without having to manually check the site. Currently, DEAL only provides update summaries via a monthly newsletter, which does not appeal to everyone. 

What is the essence of this suggestion/idea?

Add one (or several) RSS feeds that update with new news items, events, tools, stories and newsletters. 

What are the potential benefits of this suggestion/idea?

 Help people stay up to date with new content on the DEAL Community Platform without having to manually check the site.

Who would benefit from this suggestion/idea?

Anyone who uses news aggregator software to keep track of updates from websites, and those who do not like to subscribe to newsletters for privacy or other reasons.

Open Questions

  • What content would you like to see an RSS feed for?
  • Should we have one feed with different content types, or separate feeds?
  • Should the feed(s) also be viewable within the platform? (See related Activity Feed proposal)
  • Would it be useful to have social media feeds (e.g. Twitter) on the platform, too?

    🙌 Nice idea. I would like an RSS feed that includes new tools, new events and news off course.

    What are the (technical) implications of this great idea?

    Limited technical implications in this case! The main question is whether the RSS feed(s) should be designed purely for use in external tools, or should it/they be visible in the platform? And would the related Activity Feed suggestion, if implemented, remove the need for showing the RSS feed(s) in the platform?
