    Avid feeds in application manager

    Could be a dumb question but... As far as I can see there is no way to remove articles in the feeds list inside the application manager. Will deletion of articles be managed by the user, Avid or will we have hundreds of articles in there in a years time?

    Re: Avid feeds in application manager

    Hi Jeroen,

    Currently, articles in the Feeds tab have an expiration date set when they are published. They automatically remove themselves once they reach their expiration date. It might be a year out or a month out depending on the article.

    Whether user-controlled management of the articles in the Feeds tab is on the roadmap with Product Management, I'm not sure. But I can sure bring up the idea with the team.

    Thanks Adam.

    I don't mind not having control but considering the layout I wonder how much people are going to scroll through the items if the list becomes long and is also filled with marketing info.

    Re: Avid feeds in application manager

    User management please. Also an option to only receive feeds on topics I will read. No need for any Sebelius or ProTools info for me. I don't do any sound work. All picture editing/finishing.

    In the Application Manager\Feeds try changing "Show all" to just what you want. I also removed the Application Manager from my task bar and now do not have any (super annoying) feeds show up anymore.

    I also believe these feeds inside the application manager is a marketing attempt going wrong. Avid, if somebody wants to be continuously informed about news they subscribe to a newsletter and receive these by mail. A communication method used by many companies for years.

    It's not that I do not see any use for feeds, but then you need to either customize them to the users needs or allow the user to customize them to his/her needs. What I see now is just plain stupid.

    Maybe I am getting long in the tooth as indicated by my trusty old Post Office mail box having had a No Junk mail sign on it longer than Avid has existed Wink None the less I totally agree with you, and would have been less polite than stupid in my descriptive. Super Angry

    The feeds thingy made me decide to roll back to MC 6.5.x on the few machines I have with MC.

    Probably not, but I am not letting any application get its hooks into my computer - without a fight.

    What can be turned off today, can be reprogrammed in the future . . . .

    There are no features in MC 7 or MC8 that interest me in the least, so staying at 6.5 is fine by me Geeked

    Re: Avid feeds in application manager

    While I agree being reminded hwomany new feeds there are every start up and the fact the count doesn't change even if you read the feeds is a bit of a pain. It's not that big a hit.

    Application manager is important moving forwards for rolling out updates etc but currently as far as I can see (on a dongle activated system) MC will run fine with App manager closed.

    No but it is an additional niggle I could certainly do without.
    Reminds me of one of my pet pieves. I buy lots of genuine DVD and BluRay movies. Through every start up my time is wasted with Anti Piracy excretement. What is the point of "preaching" to the never even had to be converted?? Reality check my only way to avoid this is to visit a friend and watch her collection of pirate movies.

    As we have been able to research, find and purchase the product in the first place why insult our intelligence with compulsory feeds in the products licence manager? IMO anyone with a genuinely interest in these feeds is smart enough to find the ones that are applicable to them so PLEASE remove them from the Application manager.

    While these feeds are just an annoyance I would like to take your words a step further Andrew. It's not the feeds themselves that I find "stupid" or "insulting". I find that there might actually be a place for them. If the compulsory part of it felt intentionally and Avid would force feed me with information I could still understand it while at the same time probably I would be irritated.

    But what we now have are 2-3 weeks of the same "13 new feeds" showing each time you restart in an application manager that is causing trouble around the world resulting in Avid support having to give out temporary licenses, dongles updates that go wrong, activation codes that should not be filled in and I wonder what more. Now we understand we have to wait for 8.1 in Q3 or Q4 as Avid wants to get it right... (although it was announced for Q2.) Ok fair enough but wasn't the whole idea behind the subscription model also to be able to release more updates?

    Anyway. My problem is very simple. Some wise person once said: "Where something will end up often depends on where it starts!"

    Avid if you want(ed) to get it right why didn't you wait with the release of MC8 and first got the application manager with its licensing scheme and its feeds right before releasing it? How do you (re)create the trust relationship with your userbase if you keep releasing these new features in this way? This is what I find stupid.

    I hope these are not indications on what more to expect.

    I agree and hope I did not imply there was any thing amiss with the feeds. My issue is that (maybe mistakenly) I do not think myself so stupid that I (or anyone else) want (let alone need) them popping up in an Application manager of products I already own.
