Scoop.it enables you to add an RSS feed as a destination within your smart calendar. The purpose of doing this is to monitor your publishing on a certain website, and distribute content from that site, without publishing to it from Scoop.it . Many businesses use this if they have a custom CMS and cannot integrate with Scoop.it, or wish to solely share and distribute their own content through Scoop.it's social media integrations.
You can add an RSS destination to your smart calendar basically the same way you already do it for website integrations. First, from the right hand side of your smart calendar, click "add a destination".
Then, give your destination a name. Such as "Press Releases" or "Home Page". Nobody will see this but the users on your Scoop.it account.
Next, Scoop.it will ask you where your content destination is. Select "Other Website".
Enter the RSS URL from your website. (This may be different than the regular URL, it must have an RSS on it). Click "Attach".
Once we find the RSS, we will ask you to "save" the setting.
Then, go back to the smart calendar. You will see your new RSS destination appear at the bottom of your calendar as a new destination. It will start to sync automatically, but it may take a few minutes for the calendar to find all of the content coming from that feed.
Once we are synced up, you will start to see some blue boxes pop up in the calendar. These represent posts that have been published on that website. If you don't see any blue boxes, it either means that nothing was published recently, or that Scoop.it has not completed the sync just yet.
Now, what can you do with this added content?
You can share it to social media!
Simply click on your calendar next to a social network, and select "share existing content". This will display content coming from that RSS feed.
You can share or promote them the same way you can share your blog content through Scoop.it.
You can also click on a blue box directly on that destination to share it to your social networks.
