How do I set up a Watchlist channel?
In order to do this you need to have the rights to create Watchlists on your platform. If you have these access rights you will be able to see "Manage Watchlists" in the drop-down menu for Publish. If you do not have these rights and you would like them, please contact the person inside your company who manages Digimind.
What to do
Click on “Publish” and then on “Manage Watchlists”.
This will take you to the next page. You will see the Watchlists that you have already created, or if you are an administrator, you will see all the Watchlists that exist on your platform.
Click on “Create”.
Then on the next page, you can name your channel and describe the contents of this channel. The description will appear with the name and will help your subscribers to understand if they would like to opt in to this channel.
If you would like to add an image to the Watchlist, use the browse button.
A featured channel will be marked by a yellow star on the Watchlist selection page. This will highlight it as relevant or interesting for your subscribers.
The Data Source choices allow you to define where you would like to draw the information from. It is possible to create Watchlists using:
- projects and folders
- tags for stored information
- a combination of projects and folders
Today it is possible to create Watchlists using only folders.
In this example, I am using a combination of folders and tags. On this first page, I have selected the folder that contains the information about mobile payment.
To start applying tags, I will click on the link to My Reader:
This will open the My Reader interface, and I can start applying the tags I need. To confirm any choices made here, click on "Apply Configuration" at the bottom of the window.
Back on the Watchlist generator page, you are also able to target the audience of this particular Watchlist channel. You can select a group of users or individually select them by name.
Any users you select will be automatically subscribed to the Watchlist channel you have just created. They will receive it in their next Watchlist.
Finally, at the bottom of the page, click on Save. Your Watchlist channel has been created.
