RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. The basic idea is you can read the news the same way you read email. You subscribe to a feed and get notifications when a news publisher has a new story.
This is the RSS icon. Click on it and copy the web address into outlook to subscribe. Don’t worry if it looks like a bunch of random code, RSS feeds don’t display properly in browsers.
Feedly is a good option that works on all platforms, but if you have Microsoft Office, you have Outlook, so don’t need to add another app.
To add a feed in Outlook, just right click on “RSS Subscriptions” on the left, and click “Add New RSS Feed”
Every time the site makes a post, you get a number in the folder, so clicking on the site will show a feed of the latest news.
This can be useful for a lot of things, from keeping up to date on the news to watching your competitors.
