Jeff Julian's Blog CEO of Enterprise Marketer

1. If someone updates a post, don't create a new one, update the old one and make it customizable for the user to be posted if it is updated. This is make the Outlook search much easier and my "Mark All As Read" count go down.

2. If someone updates the blog title, update the title of the folder instead of creating a brand new folder.

These two things would make my life much easier as I am using Newsgator. I love the tool, just hate those two things. Got anything else?

I actually like getting both the posts when something changes, because I'm nosy and like to see what changed. I second you on the name change one, though. I think I wish that if I deleted a folder, it would delete the subscription. I wish when I added a subscription, it created the folder then, rather than waited till it pulled down content. I wish I could send multiple feeds to the same folder, or better yet, I wish I could specify the folder to send a feed to. (For example, I could name the folder Tim Ewald rather than XML Eye for the Object Guy, which is catchy, but causes me to have to *think* about whose posts are in there. I wish when it exported OPML, it exported the way I have the newsgator folders organized rather than in the order they were entered (at least I think that's what the order is). I wish that I had more then 14 days to evaluate because it seems like, but I'm not totally sure, that my computer is less stable since I've installed Newsgator. I think that's it! ;-)

And I'm SOOOOOOOO SOOOOOOO Sorry to have gotten the name of your site wrong. I really do know what it is, see, here's proof: http://blogs.gotdotnet.com/lauraj/PermaLink.aspx/b2745353-60a2-4f7b-ad6c-0cc067b0f3da

Forgive me?
