In addition to your own news, you can also show external news as News feed in your group. RSS, Really Simple Syndication (simple simultaneous publication), is a technical tool with which one can subscribe to changes to a website. For that reason, this is not static news but it is adjusted whenever new messages are available. Viadesk automatically checks for new messages every 10 minutes.
