No matter how carefully crafted a search is, irrelevant documents still occasionally appear in search results. Revising the search itself to exclude these documents can be tricky. Help is on the way: there is now the ability to hide selected documents from a content stream!
To hide a document, simply select it and then click on the new right-most icon to hide it. Multiple documents can be hidden all at once, so you are able to scroll through a content stream, selecting articles one by one, and then at the bottom of the stream just click on the new icon to hide them all at once.
Click on the new "Show Hidden" link and the content stream refreshes to show only hidden documents. Select the document then click on the right-most icon (circle) in the action bar to make it visible once again.
Hide with Show Hidden is available on the Inbox, the Search page, and when viewing documents from the Tag page. Other parts of the app like Dashboards always automatically show only the visible documents, but don’t have the ability to change when a document is visible.
When a document is hidden it is hidden from all searches. Being able to hide a document from just one particular search is an enhancement already in our backlog.
A patch release went out between last and this release to address data inconsistencies in dashboard widgets.
Australian Sources - Some Australian sources are now restricted for customers outside of Australia. Instead of seeing the article you will see the message “Content is not available in your region”.
German Premium Package - now included by default for all accounts. This will give everyone access to FAZ and SZ, two of Germany’s top publications.
The team has been investigating and fixing several causes of missing tweets. We have implemented changes in our subscription component to consider country codes used in boolean searches when creating a twitter subscription. We also support “twitterInfo.userName and twitterInfo.displayName” syntaxes alongside ‘Author’ searches in order to get the fullest results.
- Increased the capacity for newsletter summary headers to now be 3000 characters (up from 1000)
- Newsletters now also show the total number of articles that have been included and showing that count in reference to the article limit (currently 200).
- Articles can now be shared using a fixed firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Simply check "Use default Meltwater email address" when sharing an article.
- The Modify Sender Address option is available to change the identity and physical address associated with the unsubscribe footer for newsletters.
We are changing existing news and broadcast search instant notification settings so that any push notifications are currently subscribed to, as well as any new ones set up, will not get duplicate article notifications. With duplicate settings for news and broadcast instant notifications, one can choose to receive:
- No duplicates (default setting)
- Only similar duplicates
- All articles (exact and similar duplicates)
