If you work in media (or any other field that requires a constant presence on the internet), you know the pain of having to switch between sources and scroll through endless feeds to get the information you need. Company websites, industry blogs, social media feeds, and business newsletters that fill up your inbox… Why can’t all relevant content come straight to you?
Actually, it can. With Inoreader you can follow what’s important and filter out the noise. Read this article to learn how Inoreader can help you take back control of your newsfeed and boost productivity at the workplace!
Pick your sources
Let’s start with the basics. Think of the web media outlets you use in your daily work to gain professional insights. It could be anything: public service announcements, company updates, industry trends, or even Facebook and Twitter posts. Wherever you find that information, make sure to include it in your Inoreader subscriptions.
You can do that in a couple of ways – either by following selected RSS channels (use our Search engine to help you find your feeds) or by building webfeeds for pages that don’t already have them (more on that here). If you feel like taking it up a notch, you can monitor keywords and phrases with our Active searches feature.
Congratulations, you can now find all relevant content in one place! What’s next?
Organize your work feeds
Now that you have your feeds stacked, you will probably need some help organizing them. No worries, we’ve got you covered! Start by grouping them in Folders based on different topics you follow (e.g., Technology, Business, and Science). After that, you will be ready to build your own custom Dashboard where you can add gadgets to make your life easier during working hours.
Use the New articles gadget to show you fresh content from handpicked folders, go back and share Recently liked articles with others, keep an eye on Starred articles to read later, or monitor trends and media coverage via Recent Active Search results.

Save time and work smarter
Now that you have separated all professional content from your favorite entertainment feeds (Inoreader’s great for keeping up with those as well), you can use the time saved from chaotically scrolling online to optimize your content consumption during the day further.
Why not use commuting to the office as an opportunity to catch up with some Starred articles? Even if you’re driving, we’ve got your back with our Text to speech feature.
Got some great ideas? Leave notes to save your thoughts on the go and annotate important passages to reflect on later.
If you still have to go through many articles to spot important updates, we’ve got some cool features that might help. Declutter your feeds by applying the Remove duplicates filter and make important phrases pop out with custom Highlighters. Even when you’re away, you can still get notified about essential updates using Rules.
