COINS RSS news feeds keep you up to date with news from COINS; once you subscribe, you will be notified whenever new content is available on the website. A short paragraph summarizes the content of each new item, and a link takes you to the full article on the website. One news feed is currently available on the COINS USA website - COINS News and Events, which includes the latest news about COINS clients, solutions and events.
What is RSS?
RSS is a way to gather up-to-date information, such as news articles that are published by different web sites, and display it in a single place. This means that you do not have to visit each individual website to see if new information is available. There are various explanations for what the initials RSS stand for, but the most common is Really Simple Syndication. Each information source is known as a channel or a feed.
How to get COINS RSS feeds
There are various ways you can receive these feeds:
- Use a news reader program.
- Use an Internet browser such as Internet Explorer.
- Use a mail program such as Microsoft Outlook 2007 or 2010.
- Display them within COINS OA on the module home pages.
To subscribe to the COINS News and Events feed, paste the following URL into your news reader or other software:
(how and where you do this depends on the software).
What does it cost?
It's free. Although we talk about "subscribing", all you are really doing is telling your browser, news reader or other software that you want to receive the feed. If you want to receive the same feed using different software applications (for example if you want to display it in COINS and view it in Outlook), you need to follow the "subscribe" process for each software application.
