RSS integration is an easy way to share Content Post directly with your social media management tool, such as Hootsuite, Sprout Social or Buffer.
Please note that RSS integration will not work until you have shared at least one post to RSS, as this is the point at which the feed is first populated. Please ensure that you have shared one post to RSS via the TAP dashboard before attempting to integrate the feed.
To set it up, navigate to 'Sharing' within the Content Feature in the Dashboard.
Copy the Feed URL and then follow the instructions below for three of the most common social media management tools.
Once set up, you can simply click 'Share to RSS' on a Content Post in the Admin Dashboard and that Post, along with its metadata like caption and accreditation, will display in your social media management tool ready for posting onwards.
If you use another tool and would like help getting RSS setup, please get in touch through chat support.
Note that with some RSS Feed Readers, there needs to be a post in the feed before the Reader will recognise it. This is the most common cause of a getting the error message "Invalid feed". If you receive this message, please 'Share to RSS" on Content Post from the Gallery and try again.

- Sprout Social has an RSS feed reader called Feedly built-in. You'll need to create an account with Feedly to use it but it's no extra cost. Navigate inside your Sprout Social account as seen below to set that up. This is only compatible with Twitter.
- Buffer has an in-build RSS feed reader as part of the Content Inbox.
