CRM News is an app for the Midrub CMS which is allowing to get news from websites and social networks.
CRM News is an app which could be used as dashboard page where the user will be redirected after login. The user could configure it to show the news from the favorited websites and social networks like Instagram and Twitter. In
addition, it could show the direct messages from Facebook Pages, Instagram and Twitter.
All information displayed in the CRM News app is organized in streams and tabs. A tab is a window which could contain multiple streams. All streams have behind a template which displays news, direct messages and posts.
By plan is possible to control the number of tabs and streams available for each user.

The app is parsing content from websites and social networks only when the user is accessing it. It saves the content in the cache, not the database. After a fixed period of time it checks each streams for new content. If a stream has
new content, it reloads it and saves new content in the cache.
How the app is parsing the data from internet?
When a new stream is created, it parses the content for the first time from a website or social network.
The administrator should enter in the administrator panel the time period when should be checked the streams for new content.
For example the checking time is 5 minutes. This means each 5 minutes will be processed one tab. If is not the current tab, the user will see a red bell icon in the tab’s link(the icon means the tab has new content).
- When the user is accessing the app, only the active tab will be checked immediately for new content. After 5 minutes will be checked for new content another tab.
This is important because otherwise the app will take minutes to be loaded due to numerous streams.
Added options in the plans to control the app usage by plan.
