SNEWS launches feature that allows subscribers to save favorite articles into personal folder

How much easier would it be if you could simply save favorite articles or topics of interest into a separate folder, available for easy access, printing and sharing -- all without having to search through more than 11,000 story files? Well, now you can. SNEWS just launched the "Save This" feature, which can be found on every article and news release in a member tools bar located at the top and bottom of each story.

Since Jan. 1, 2002, SNEWS® has penned nearly 6,000 articles and posted more than 5,000 news releases -- all searchable in our archives database. But let’s face it. Unless you can remember the topic, the year it was written or a keyword or name from an article to help narrow down a search, even as good as our search function is, the results can frequently be, well, overwhelming and sometimes frustrating.

How much easier would it be if you could simply save favorite articles or topics of interest into a separate folder, available for easy access, printing and sharing -- all without having to search through more than 11,000 files? Well, now you can.

SNEWS just launched the "Save This" feature, which can be found on every article and news release in a member tools bar located at the top and bottom of each story. Simply click on the "Save This" icon in the bar, as illustrated below:

and a new page is launched as illustrated below:

Here, you can add comments about the article or news release, if you choose, to help you recognize why it was important to you. Once you select "Save and Close," our system will place the headline in your "My SNEWS favorites SAVE THIS folder" located in your "Manage Subscription" area of SNEWS (you can find the "Manage Subscription" link at the top of every web page in SNEWS).

Your SAVE THIS folder will look like this once you start adding stories to it:

You will also notice in the member toolbar an email link. Perhaps you have forwarded stories of interest in the past, and if you have, you know how valuable this tool is. However, it just got even better with the addition of two quick-link buttons: "Forward This" and "Save This" -- as illustrated below:



Anyone receiving an email forward of a SNEWS article from you can now forward it on to other folks quickly and easily. Better yet, by simply hitting "Save This," recipients of your emails can add articles you send to them to their own "My SNEWS Favorites SAVE THIS folder."

We hope you enjoy this feature, and we thank all of our readers for their suggestions that frequently lead to system improvements, such as this.
