News International’s paywalled newspaper sites TheTimes.co.uk and SundayTimes.co.uk are launching a new feature which aims to enable readers to keep track of stories of interest.
The Dashboard tool will become available to readers on the site over the next few days, an announcement on TheTimes.co.uk says.
We hope this latest addition to our websites will help you to personalise your news and get straight to the stories that are important to you.
The tool will notify readers when their favourite sections publish new articles and when a previously read article is updated. It also provides them with a history of read articles which they can quickly link back to.
Commenting on the new feature, paidContent’s Robert Andrews said the tool shows how the service is taking advantage of its online platform.
You can’t do that in print. It’s also somewhat unique amongst news websites, even if it is essentially a friendlier version of RSS-type functionality.
