What is Feed Tool?
Feed Tool allows you to manually build feeds via a simple user interface. Feed Tool can be used for any situation where you require a collection of content to be manually controlled.
What is a feed?
A feed is a data format for delivering your content. Most content publishers have a standard feed which they use for basic content syndication. This feed is typically generated automatically by their content management system (e.g. Wordpress) and is updated automatically as new content is added to the system.
What feed formats does Feed Tool support?
If you need us to support a different feed format, please contact us and we can work with you on you requirements.
What is an outgoing feed?
An "outgoing feed" is what we call the feed you are creating. It is the feed you create and manage with our application.
What is an incoming feed?
"Incoming feeds" are pre-existing feeds from anywhere which you can use as sources for your outgoing feed. An example incoming feed would be the ESPN Latest News feed.
