In Agility you can create briefings containing your monitoring results, which can be emailed to you, your colleagues and your clients.

You can manually create a briefing with saved coverage, allowing you to produce a collection of the exact mentions you have identified as important to you.

You can also create an automatic briefing, which will deliver all results generated by your selected topic on a recurring basis, so that every day you and your colleagues are alerted to your coverage by email without you having to do anything.

Getting started

  1. Click on Monitor > Select Briefings from the drop down
  2. Select to either create a New Briefing, Quick briefing or Choose Existing briefing to copy. 

New briefing: Allows you to start from a blank briefing
Quick briefing: Allows you to work from a template
