If you’re interested in learning more about the Feedly for Biopharma roadmap, you can schedule a demo call by clicking on the button above. 2020 will be a thrilling year with new skills and bold experiments!
Let’s imagine that you have a Biopharma Business feed and want to track updates about drugs treating cancer. Let’s train Leo to read this feed and cut through the noise for you.
You can see a preview of all the articles that Leo has recognized as related to pharmaceutical drugs and cancer. These articles will be prioritized in your feed.
Now, you can do the same with psychoactive drugs. Let’s say you want to prioritize articles that are at the intersection of psychoactive drugs and mental health.
Leo will continuously learn and get smarter as he prioritizes articles about pharma drugs or recreational drugs, letting you focus on the topics and trends that matter to you.
After two months of Leo utilization, I can say that he saved us two of the three hours that we needed weekly to do our job, with the same or better quality. Really performant. Good job and long life to Leo

The internet is a cavernous place. Opinion and insight can emerge from anywhere. Whether you’re new to Feedly or not, you want good, trusted publishers to teach you more about a certain topic, market or industry.
Feedly already digests and presents updates from the sources you value. But to really stay ahead of the curve, it pays to search beyond the publishers you already follow – to the blogs, articles, reports, and debates that are turning heads, but almost buried among the noise online.
That’s why we’ve given Feedly the ability to look further with Power Search across the web. It drills down into the specific information you want to find beyond your existing feeds and sources.
In this way, you can learn something new, discover new sources for future reference and easily share reputable insights with your colleagues and social network. It intersects the exact content you’re looking for with super-specific topics and publications.
Here’s what Power Search across the Web does, and how to use it.
Introducing Power Search across the web
Search is a relevance game. It’s easy to lose time in the wormhole of search engines. Meanwhile, the low hit rate of typical news aggregators and alert features can leave you pulling hairs out.
Feedly gets around this with a carefully vetted database of more than 40 million trusted web sources. Collectively, they publish 110 million articles, journals, and videos. on a daily basis.
But that’s still a crazy amount of info and analysis. So we help you refine this down with buckets– categories of publications that make a search super granular.
You can think of each bucket as a list of trusted publications that focus on a specific industry, function or topic. They tell the search exactlywhat to filter. You get hyper-relevant content that can be saved to a Feedly board and shared with your team or out into the wider world. Six popular buckets are surfaced automatically yet other, more narrow buckets can be chosen – we’ll show you how to do this later in our guide.
Discover what trade publications are saying about a company. Track topics on strategy sources. Bring up the conversation around a product in business magazines. The knowledge is yours to shape and tinker with.
Okay, let’s imagine you’re part of the Innovation Hub at Aéroports de Paris. You’re looking for ground-breaking stories and reports about the airline industry.
First, click on the search icon to open Power Search, select the new Across the web tab, and search for the airlines topic.
You get instant access to highly relevant articles from expert and trusted sources.
You can also search for companies, people, products, or other keywords you are interested in.
Narrow to specific publications
The initial search is performed against a set of default buckets: strategy magazines, trade publications, business magazines, and tech blogs.
But you can narrow your search to a specific slice of the web. Click on +PUBLICATIONS and lookup energy for example. This is a powerful way to find articles about airlines across a broad set of energy publications.
Refine your query with Leo topics and business events
You can refine your query by adding additional parameters (topics or business events) using the +AND operator.
For example, you can easily search for product launches related to the airline industry by combining the airlines smart topic and the product launch business event
Cut through the noise with Exclude
Okay, now let’s remove some results you 100% don’t want to find. For instance, any mention of COVID-19…
The Exclude feature allows you to filter out specific topics or keywords from the search results. Click on Exclude > +Topic and enter COVID-19.
If you are a power user, you can use the Title Only knob to let Feedly know if you want to search only in the title of articles or the entire content.
The where on the web feature also includes a funnel button gives you more control over which publications should be included in the buckets. Pick leading publications if you are searching for a popular term and pick all publications if you are searching for a niche topic and you want your search to be as broad as possible.
Make your Feedly better
Once you’ve discovered a great new article, you can click on the source name and see the other articles that the source has published. This is a powerful way to find new sources for niche topics.
If the content is highly relevant, you can use the +FOLLOW button to add that new source to one of your Feedly feeds and receive the next articles published by that source.

You may know your way around our Feedly Boards already. They’re a place to save useful insights you’ve found in Feedly or around the web, and share them as newsletters with your teammates.
But insights can come from many kinds of media, including market reports, conference brochures, presentation decks, or whitepapers packed with industry knowledge. Typically, these exist in a PDF format.
Now, you can save PDFs to your Feedly Boards, so nothing is left out for a deep-dive understanding of a subject.
Here is a run-through
Let’s suppose you’re an analyst for JP Morgan, learning about breaking developments in financial services. Here’s how to add the PDFs you find to your Boards.
Say you come across a fantastic online market report. In this case, it’s all about the technologies set to disrupt financial services in the near future.
Copy the URL.
Then, return to your Feedly Board, choose + ADD STORY, and paste the URL.
Feedly will extract the PDF’s title automatically from metadata or the name of the file. You can also shorten and change the title yourself.
Before you can save a story to a Board, add a summary.
Summaries show your team what they’re about to read and why it matters. They’ll also show up your Team Newsletter.
Write your own, or do as we’ve done here and copy the first paragraph of the report’s summary.
Once you’re done, click ‘Save To Board’.
The Board should now have your PDF at the top.
It’ll stay there for anyone in your team to view and comment on. Add as many PDFs as you want to populate the Board, so you can easily access all the reference points you need in one place.
If your board is configured with a team newsletter or a Slack or Microsoft Teams notification, the PDF link will be automatically included and shared with your teammates.
Follow these steps to add slides, brochures, guides, market reports and more to your Boards. Now that you can save any insights you come across, you can be sure that crucial information never escapes you or your team when building a fuller picture of a topic.
We heard from lots of users that market reports can be a considerable source of noise when you use keyword alerts to track updates about companies.
We are excited to announce a new Market Reports Leo topic. We have taught Leo to read articles and understand if they are about market reports so that you can easily mute them from your feeds and save hours.
Let us show you how it works
Let’s imagine you have keyword alerts to track updates about various Health companies such as Amgen, Novartis, and 23&Me.
As you can see, a considerable amount of these articles are noisy market reports. Let’s train Leo to read this feed and filter out all the market report articles.
You can find the Mute Filters skill when clicking on Train Leo.
In the Mute Filters editor, you can select the topics and keywords you want Leo to mute. Search for the new Market Reports Topic.
You can see a preview of all the articles that Leo has recognized as Market Reports and that will be removed from the feed.
Leo will continuously read your feed and remove articles he identifies as market reports, letting you focus on the topics and trends that matter to you.
The Leo Market Report Mute Filter helps us cut through the noise and track company updates a lot more efficiently.
