How do I sync my website news into the app?

Last Updated: Dec 28, 2018 10:00AM EST
When syncing in your news, you will do this with an RSS feed link from the Content Management System (CMS). The steps for obtaining the proper link and syncing in your news are below. Before setting up your News, you will likely want to create a category, in case you have multiple News items syncing in - you can find instructions for setting up Categories here.
 
Obtaining your RSS link in the CMS:
 
  1. From the Admin Home, click on the site section that your News feed exists on
  2. Click on the "Content Pages"
  3. Click into your Homepage section or the Content Page that your news feed is on
  4. Click "Edit" on the News Component
  5. Click the "Update RSS Feed" button
  6. Hit "OK" on the pop-up (this will generate a link under the button)
  7. Click on the "View RSS Feed" link - (This will generate a new tab and if your browser does not have an RSS reader it will look like a bunch of code)
  8. Copy the URL address in this new tab 
 
Setting up your News feed in the app:
 
  1. In the eSV2Go system, click on "Settings" under the News section
  2. Click on "Feeds"
  3. Make sure you are in the "RSS Feeds" tab at the top of this page
  4. Click the Blue "+ New" button
  5. Paste in your RSS URL
  6. Select a Feed Category (optional)
  7. Click the "Test Connection" button
  8. Check/uncheck your feed options, based on your preferences ("Create News Item" should be checked but "Create Push Notification" is up to your discretion) 
  9. Click "Ok"
