Using Outlook to view unread Forum content

Version 5

    There are two options for reading SolidWorks Forums content right within Microsoft Outlook, RSS and eMail notification.

     

    RSS:

     

    View all content via the following RSS feed https://forum.solidworks.com/community/feeds/allcontent. This feed can be used by any RSS compatible viewer.

    - You can see the posts you have read and ones you have not (unread).

    - Add to Outlook or any RSS capable reader. Note that Outlook 2007 and previous has some issues with RSS feeds.

     

     

    Following what's important:

     

    Use Follow this Place and mark the places within the Forums that are important to you.

    You can follow, or un-follow, places within the Notifications area of any place.

    Receive e-mail notification to define what is important to you (i.e., place post, tag, etc.).


    - You can define, and modify, the email notications.

    - Add to Outlook (see Create an Outlook rule below).
