HOC Release Notes (December 22, 2022)

This release provides under the hood improvements to make HOC public sites operate more efficiently when interacting with Salesforce. It also provides some bug fixes and new features as described below:

New Features

RSS Feed Generator (HOC3-16548)

Using a Listing Block you can now create a RSS Feed. There are two key components of this new feature.

  1. You can utilize the RSS Feed Generator to create a public RSS Feed using our RSS block in the CMS. Using ONLY the RSS Feed Generator in the Listing CMS will not create a public feed without the use of the RSS block.  
  2. You can export the RSS Feed data in an XML format so it can be used by other third-party solutions like a mass mailing application.

To access the RSS Feed Generator go to Blocks > Listing CMS.

If you don't having the Listing CMS feature enabled in your instance, you'll need to open a support case to request it.

In the image below the first 6 steps are highlighted to help explain how to create the RSS Generator. For step 2, any Salesforce object can be used. In addition, any applicable Salesforce listview can be used in step 3.

This feature is a RSS Generator. This is explained in the red box below. This block will not be a visible block. We'll use the RSS Block in the CMS to display the content. In this case, Volunteer Opportunities created this week.

Next, we'll add the RSS Generator settings or output information as shown in the image below. You'll also notice the link to the RSS Feed is automatically created.

If you copy and paste the RSS Feed Generator link in a new tab it'll look like the image below.

The image below shows an example of how it would look using the RSS block in the CMS.

Below is an example of Feed Item Structure used in a RSS Feed:




     <pubDate>{LastModifiedDate, "MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt"}</pubDate>
