New in version 3.4 is the ability for you to receive your recent activity updates in an RSS feed. For those new to the world of RSS, here is a little guide to adding your RSS feed to a feed reader. In the example below I will be using a feed reader recommended by FreshBooks called Feedreader.
1. From within your FreshBooks account, browse to the “Home” tab and click on the feed icon link.
2. Right click on the your RSS feed URL and select “Copy Shortcut”.
3. In your RSS reader select a button or link that allows you to add a new feed. When asked for the URL to your feed, paste in your FreshBooks feed URL. In Feedreader, simply click on the “New” feed button and paste the URL in the address field.
4. When adding a secure feed you will need to specify a username and password or login credentials. Enter your FreshBooks login information. In Feedreader you will receive a popup like the one below.
Simple as that! Now you should receive recent activity updates in your RSS reader. Please note that only an RSS reader that supports RSS authentication is supported.
