There are lots of ways to use an RSS feed.
Beyond being a convenient, centralized source of information you want easy access to, it can be integrated with Process Street to automate repetitive tasks so you can work more efficiently.
For example, when a new blog post has been published on your website, you’ll want to start promoting it right away. By taking a few minutes to set up a simple automation rule in Zapier, you can kickstart the process without wasting any time.
Through RSS by Zapier’s integration with Process Street, you can automatically create and assign a content promotion workflow as soon as an article goes live, beginning the promotion process without even lifting a finger.
Let’s outline the use case and go through how to set this up in Zapier.
- When a new post is published on Process Street’s blog, RSS by Zapier will identify the new item in the blog’s RSS feed and will create a Content Promotion workflow run
- The workflow run can be automatically assigned to the relevant team member managing content promotion, notifying them via email, so the promotion process can get underway as soon as possible
Plan: This integration is available to customers on all plans.
Users: In order to create an API key for integrations, you must be an Administrator.
- A new blog post is published on a website
- RSS by Zapier recognizes the new item from the feed URL and triggers the creation of a content promotion workflow run
- The workflow run is named after the blog post and assigned to a marketing team member responsible for managing the article’s promotion
