Rules make it easy for you to populate a collection automatically with your desired content. The rule settings can be found in Content panel in the sidebar settings of your collection.
Clicking "Add/edit rules" will open a new window:
There are four types of rules:
Keywords: e.g. entering “Tesla, Musk” will add all content items that contain the keyword “tesla” AND all contain items that contain the the keyword “Musk”. If you want content items only that contain both the keyword “Tesla” and “Musk”, then you need to enter “Tesla Musk”.
Content type: e.g. selecting “Articles” and “Podcasts” will add all content items that are articles and all content items that are podcasts
Publication date: e.g. selecting “past 6 months” will add your content that’s been published in this time period.
The different rules are interdependent, meaning if you enter the keyword “Musk”, select “nytimes.com” as source, select “Article” as content type and as date “last 6 months”, then only your articles with the keyword “Musk” from nytimes.com that have been published in the last 6 months will be added.
For the more technically minded:
Criteria within rules are connected with an OR operator (e.g. nytimes.com OR theatlantic.com)
By default, all rules are connected with an AND operator (e.g. keyword AND source). That can be changed to an OR operator if required.
