MyAlerts offers two ways to populate data: Parsing and Feeds. While Parsing offers the easiest initial setup for your development team, Feeds offers greater power and flexibility, leveraging the full extent of MyAlerts capabilities. Feeds gives you control over the quality of your data as well as more precision with the timing, content, and quality of alerts. This translates into increased reliability, higher click-through rates, and better quality data available for reporting.
Your team uploads a data file matching our file requirements and specific feed type requirements, at a timing of your choice. The MyAlerts Feeds system consumes the data and converts it into relational schema used to power your alerts and reporting. As new user intent flows in, we combine this data with your feed data in realtime, accurately alerting users when relevant information matches intent.

To verify your feed uploads and processes correctly, upload an md5sum along side your feed file. i.e. If your feed file is named
myfeedfile-20170101.gz, also upload
myfeedfile-20170101.md5 to the same location.
