Filtering and sorting clips

Last Updated: Aug 28, 2018 12:55PM EDT

Merit clipping gives you powerful filtering and sorting tools to make sense of the clips you receive. You can use the filters at the top of your screen to narrow your clips down to chosen topics or news sources. Using a filter will display only stories that match your filter. You can then sort your findings:

  • Filter by news source: Find all clips from a specific news source
  • Filter by RSS feeds: Click "My RSS Feeds" under News Sources to view only clips published in your institution's RSS feeds
  • Filter by students: Filter your news clips by frequently mentioned students
  • Filter by tag: Filter your news clips by the tags you have added 
  • Filter by title: Search your clip headlines for a word or phrase that matters to you
  • Filter by date: Pick a date range to filter your clips or use the predefined periods (This Week / Last Week, etc.)
  • Display only matching students: This applies Merit A.I. to your clips and will only show you stories about students at your school
