You can change your Tracker News delivery option settings at any time. (Note: Before you add your first Tracker, you need to set up your Tracker News Delivery Options.)
To set up your Tracker News Delivery Options:
If you have not yet added a Tracker, see Adding a Tracker and follow the instructions on how to add your first Tracker (and set your Delivery Options).
- Or -
If you have already added Trackers and currently have Trackers listed in the Tracker News section of the Tracker Auto Tab, click the Add/Modify Trackers link.
Click the Delivery Options link.
The Tracker News Delivery Options dialogue box displays, allowing you to set your email delivery and content options. You can also find the link needed by RSS readers to receive your Tracker News via your RSS reader.
Click in the checkbox next to I would like to receive Tracker News via email if you want to receive emails that contain the results of your Tracker News searches.
In the Tracker News Email Address field, type the email address to which you want the Tracker News email sent.
In the User Name field, type your user name (i.e. the name you want used in the Tracker News email greeting).
If you would like to receive a test email to verify your settings, click the Send button.
Click the Choose an email format below drop-down menu and select the type of email format you want to receive: Text or HTML.
The Choose an email frequency drop-down allows you to select whether Tracker emails will be sent each day (providing there are updated Tracker News stories for that day), or whether they are collated into a single weekly email. The weekly email option allows for the selection of which weekday the email will be sent.
Include Story Details allows the configuration of the level of detail to be included in the email. Options include receiving just links back to the relevant stories within IntelliConnect (None), receiving a brief excerpt for each story with links back into IntelliConnect, or receiving the full text of each story within the email (also including links back into IntelliConnect).
An RSS reader is a tool that frequently checks sites to which you have subscribed and downloads any documents or RSS feeds it finds. If you use an RSS reader to subscribe to sites that have RSS feeds, you can add Trackers to the list of items you can add to your RSS reader. After you set up your Trackers in your RSS reader, you can receive the results of your Tracker News searches as you would any other RSS feed to which you subscribe.
To receive Trackers via your RSS reader, simply copy and paste the URL displayed on the Tracker News Delivery Options dialogue box into your RSS reader.
When you finish setting your Tracker News Delivery Options, click the Apply changes button to save your settings.
The Tracker News Delivery Options dialogue box closes, and the changes you made to your delivery option settings are saved.
