The default field used is LocationURL, which is a system field automatically collected by Mozenda. It contains the URL of the deepest page visited by the agent during processing.

  1. Select one or more fields as the Content for each RSS post.

The RSS feed displays this data without field headers. When multiple options are selected, the values are separated by commas.

  1. (Optional) Drag to reorder fields under the Content window.
  2. Select Preview.
    This will open a new tab in your browser to the permanent link of your new RSS feed and display the feed. Some browsers attempt to style the output while others show the raw XML with no styling.
