How to make the most of the NewsFlow module.

In this article, you will get tips on using the graph view and examples of how you can use the NewsFlow module.

Graph view tips: 

  • Change to a weekly view by clicking on “Show > Week” in the top left-hand corner of the graph.
  • Add no more than 10 companies, topics or industries in order to ensure the readability of the graph.
  • Click on the company/topic/industry at the bottom of the graph to hide/unhide the associated data from the graph.
  • Use the “Select language” box in the filters on the right-hand side of the graph to get results from a particular country’s news sources.

This module is helpful to: 

  • Monitor underlying topics of material issues.
  • Identify peaks in news on a particular company and explore the list of articles to see if they’re on the same story or on different stories.
  • Compare the media attention received by different companies, for example, your peers, or by another group of corporate stakeholders, like suppliers, potential suppliers, customers, sustainability leaders, etc.
  • Track the media attention on a group of companies over time by building a watchlist and doing a weekly check to identify top stories.
  • Understand the context in which some stories are discussed thanks to meta tags, which can reveal potential areas of risk.
