RSS feeds are great for getting alerted to brand-new short articles on your favorite websites. However your personal time should not be taken up with reading work posts. Split your professional and individual subscriptions by including work feeds to Microsoft Outlook instead.
Managing feeds in Outlook is incredibly easy, although it can just be performed in the desktop Outlook client. If you only utilize the Outlook web app, there are plenty of other good feed readers, like Feedly or Inoreader, to select from instead. You can subscribe to your feeds using Slack or Microsoft Teams.
RSS feeds in Microsoft Outlook are created in the “RSS Subscriptions” folder.
Right-click the “RSS Subscription” folder and choose “Add a New RSS Feed.”
In the “New RSS Feed” window that turns up, go into the feed address of the website or blog site that you wish to follow, then click “Add.”
If you’re happy to stick to the default settings, select “Yes.”
If you wish to see or change the default settings, click “Advanced.”
This will open the “RSS Feed Options” panel. Change the “Feed Name” or the folder where the short articles will be shown, then click “OK.”
Now select “Yes” to continue.
A new folder for the feed will be produced under the “RSS Subscriptions” folder, and Microsoft Outlook will draw back the latest feeds for you.
Erasing a membership is as simple as right-clicking the feed folder and selecting “Delete Folder.”
You can apply classifications to downloaded articles, however there are no bells and whistles like there are with specialized RSS feed readers. Sometimes bells and whistles aren’t required. If you just desire a quick and simple method to see your feeds, Microsoft Outlook may just be the best tool for the task.
