How to follow topics
In order to follow a topic in Mergeflow, click "Follow":
When you follow a topic, you will get weekly email update reports on your topic. We call these email update reports Weekly360s. Weekly360s send you updates on new venture fundings, research, market estimates, and news & blogs. You only get Weekly360 emails when something happened over the past week. So, if you do not get a Weekly360 for a topic, this means that nothing happened in this topic over the course of the past week.
If you use Mergeflow by yourself
You will get one Weekly360 for each topic you follow. If a finding (e.g. a venture funding or an R&D paper) is relevant to more than one of your topics, this will be indicated in your Weekly360. This helps you discover connections between your topics.
For each of your topics, you can set the day of the week when you want to receive the Weekly360. In order to do this, go to "My Topics", either from the top left menu...
...or from the "Topics" tile:
Then, you can toggle on or off the Weekly360 (by clicking the bell icon), and you can select the day of the week for your Weekly360:
If you use Mergeflow as part of a team
If you are part of a team in Mergeflow, you will get four Weekly360s each week: (1) Venture Capital Fundings; (2) Market Estimates; (3) R&D; (4) News & Blogs. These four Weekly360s include all findings across your and your team's topics. Team topic findings only show up in your own Weekly360s if they are also relevant to at least one of your own topics. So if all your team members follow very distinct topics, you do not spam each other's email inboxes with irrelevant findings.
Even if you are in a team, you can still get Weekly360s for individual topics if you like. This might be useful, for instance, if you have a general interest in e.g. 20 topics but are actively working on 3 of these topics. Then, individual Weekly360s for these three focus topics lets you see all new findings in one Weekly360 per topic, rather than spread across the four more general Weekly360s.
In order to get individual topic Weekly360s (we call them Focus360s), go to "My Topics". There, you can toggle on or off your topic, and select a day of the week for your Weekly360:
If at some point you do not want to follow a topic anymore, go to "My Topics", and delete the topic.
