You might not realise it, but AltFi has bespoke RSS feeds that cover every topic, company and person we write about.

Because of this, you can get alerts sent to your company Slack with only a few clicks. These might be useful if you're trying to keep track of a certain company or a sector that AltFi covers.

Alerts can be either:

These alerts can be sent to specific Channels, or as DMs to individuals or groups.

Here’s how to get it set up:

Step 1: Install the Slack RSS app

To get started, you need to add the RSS app added to your Slack workspace. The app is here in Slack’s App Directory, note you may need an administrator to approve this.

Step 2: Add an AltFi feed 

After you’ve added the RSS app, add your AltFi feed of choice by:

  1. Right-clicking the RSS button on the AltFi page you’re looking to follow,
  2. Hit "Copy Link" or similar, to get the URL (which should look something like https://www.altfi.com/feed/companies/barclays)
  3. Pick the Channel, DM or Group you’d like alerts to come through,
  4. Type /feed subscribe [AltFi feed URL], and hit send.

You can find details of how to manage and remove these alerts here.

We welcome our readers to use our RSS feeds privately in any way they see fit, and if you need any help using our feeds, just drop us a line.
