Feedly

Getting Started with Feedly

The Feedly modules allow you to monitor articles, notes and highlights, create an article, subscribe to a feed, or search for articles, feeds, and subscriptions in your Feedly account.

Prerequisites

  • A Feedly account

In order to use Feedly with Make, it is necessary to have a Feedly account. If you do not have one, you can create a Feedly account at feedly.com.

Note

The module dialog fields that are displayed in bold (in the Make scenario, not in this documentation article) are mandatory!

To connect your Feedly account to Make follow the general instructions for Connecting to services.

After you click the Continue button, Make will redirect you to the Feedly website where you will be prompted to sign in to your Feedly account.
