Tuesday Tip: Using RSS in DEVONthink Pro

If you like RSS feeds and you want to integrate them with your DEVONthink Pro workflow, there are three options:

  1. Create a link document with the URL of your RSS feed in your database. DEVONthink will display the feed live after selecting. Contents are not archived, but you can easily have a look at the feed’s current content.
  2. Use the scripts in the Scripts > Feeds menu. These scripts create groups with attached scripts that update the fill the group with new news items every time you select it.
  3. If you’re using DEVONthink Pro Office, you can also use Mail to subscribe to RSS feeds. Transfer interesting articles to your database with the Message > Add to DEVONthink Pro Office command like you would do with any ‘normal’ email message.

To learn more about the RSS and other scripts, don’t forget to have a look at DEVONthink Pro’s online help, chapter ‘Scripts’.

    If I want my RSS reader within DEVONthink Pro I simply open my Google Reader page within DEVONthink.

    The more I hear about Pro Office the more interested I become.
