Creating a Data Feed from an External Source

A Data Feed can be created by importing and keeping data in sync from external data sources.

For now, the Data Feed can connect to:

  • RSS
  • CSV
  • XML
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Google Sheets
  • And more!

To create a Data Feed from an external source:

  1. Go to the Content tab.
  2. Click on the “New” Button.
  3. Select “Data Feed”.
  4. Give the Data Feed you want to create a name and select “Data Feed From Source”
  5. Select the type of data you will import. In this case “RSS”
  6. Enter the Data Source URL, for example,
    Finally, there are two options to configure:
    • Keep data feed updated – This will automatically synchronize your Data Feed with the external source. This ensure new data at your external data source are automatically updated on your Data Feed.
    • Updates are automatically marked as approved – This will mark all data that is populated from the external source as “approved”

    In the particular cases of CSV and Google Sheets, keeping the data feed updated comes with a trade off. You can either:

      • Keep data feed updated, but then you can’t edit the data feed on our platform manually anymore.



    • Not keep the data feed updated while having the option to manually edit the data feed.

Here is an example of a Data Feed after importing an external RSS feed.
