RSS Feeds


Use RSS Bot (Mac) for RSS Desktop Alerts


Feed Notifier configures Desktop Alerts. When you download this software, you can configure it to monitor any one of your CivicReady RSS feeds. The software will monitor the CivicReady RSS feed and once a message posts, the software will display a customizable pop-up window on any Mac computer.


  1. Download Feed Notifier to your Mac
  2. Install the Software
  3. Navigate to the Add Feeds (+) option from your bottom toolbar
  4. Enter the URL for your CivicReady RSS feed group
  5. Make the following changes:
    • Change the Feed Title to your desired description
    • Select the setting of the RSS Bot
      • Start at login: Select to start the RSS Bot every time you log into your computer
      • Open with Readability: Open via the Readability accessibility option
      • Notification Sound: Select whether or not you want a notification sound, and if you do, what sound it should be
      • System Preferences: Select from various system preferences, which may vary
      • Auto Mark as Read: Automatically indicate new items as read after "x" amount of days
      • Status Icon Highlight: Choose to indicate unread items
    • Select the way you want to receive notifications in the browser you are using
      • None: No desktop notifications
      • Banners: Notification at the top of your screen
      • Alerts: Notification to the side of your screen

Your feed should now be active. Once someone posts a message to the designated group, you will see the pop-up message appear on your desktop.
