How do I add an external (RSS) feed to my Announcement?

You can add an external (RSS) feed to your announcements for users to read. RSS, also known as Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication, is a web feed format that publishes frequently updated information from external websites such as blogs, news headlines, audio, and video. RSS feeds benefit users who want to receive timely updates from favorite websites or to aggregate data from many sites.
