School Settings: External Feeds

Jade Pathe -

Please see our External Feeds Video Here: https://youtu.be/xrRgQk5KXzE 

External feeds are a way for you to display information from Handshake on external sites. To setup an external feed:

  1. Click School Settings from the main menu drop down
  2. Click External Feeds on the left side of the screen
  3. Click New External Feed from the tabs at the top of the screen
  4. Select a name for the External Feed, for example, College of Business Jobs
  5. Choose the type of external feed
    • Jobs
    • Events
    • Career Fairs
  6. Select a "version" for your external feed. Our "v1" feeds include minimal detail in the title and description fields for each feed item and are supported for legacy clients. Our "v2" feeds include additional information (For career fairs and events, the title now also includes the date, the description now also includes the date and location. For jobs the title now has the employer name,the description now also includes expiration date and the employer name) for each feed item and should be preferred.
  7. Click Next
  8. Choose the filters you would like on the left side of the screen.
    • Example: A label titled College of Business Jobs
  1. Click Next at the bottom of the screen when you are satisfied with your filters
  2. Change the status of the External Feed to Published
  3. Click Save Changes
  4. You will need to provide the link below to your IT department or manager of the website you want the feed added to. If you need to regenerate the link you can do so from this page.

Chrome is the most popular web browser [ >45%], but it doesn't support RSS.  Not good ROI for this feature.

    I'm having trouble with the feed showing up too.

    Same. I wish it was in a different language, preferably as an iframe.

    Have these issues been addressed? Which platforms can support this?

    The feed is in XML, which is not compatible with my HTML-based website.There is no plan to change this at this point in time based on the feedback I received from Handshake.

    We also have campus partners who are looking for RSS feeds to display specific groups of students - particularly our grad programs. Considering the large portion of people using chrome, this is unfortunate, particularly as we have told people to not use explorer (because we've run into issues with our approved version on campus). Anyway, hopefully this gets addressed soon! Thanks.

    The RSS works fine. It's a dataset, so you reference it when defining how it shows up in a browser (as Text/HTML).  Here's a PHP example. I just wish Handshakes "Format v2" didn't role event dates into the event titles. Makes its harder to sort and format. Not impossible, just painful.
