Feed Your Need

Did you know there is a great way built in with Office 2007 for you to keep up to date on all the Blogs/Web pages and other RSS feeds you keep tabs on during your day?

No? Then do we have a Blog article for you!

“Feed your need” on the Blackboard and Helpdesk blogs here at SHSU and any other Internet site with RSS Feeds through Outlook 2007. You can accomplish this in two ways:

In your Mail Folders section on the left hand side of your Outlook window right click on your RSS Feeds folder and select Add a New RSS Feed. At this point you need the Feed address or XML file address. For the Blackboard Blog that address is: http://www.shsu.edu/~ucs_www/webdev/blackboard/blog/atom.xml
and for the Helpdesk Blog, that address is:
http://www.shsu.edu/~ucs_www/support/blog/atom.xml. Once you have pasted in the appropriate Feed address, click Add and you are done.

In Outlook 2007 select the Tools pull-down menu and choose Account Settings. Next select the RSS Feeds tab and select the New button. At this point you need the Feed address or XML file address. For the Blackboard Blog that address is: http://www.shsu.edu/~ucs_www/webdev/blackboard/blog/atom.xml
and for the Helpdesk Blog, that address is:
http://www.shsu.edu/~ucs_www/support/blog/atom.xml.
Once you have pasted in the appropriate Feed address, click Add and then Close and you are finished.

So find the way that is best for you and stay connected to the news that affects your life here at Sam Houston State University.
