Netvibes Potions are the best way to automate actions between your favorite apps, smart devices and data. Get your houseplants to tweet when they’re thirsty, automatically share your newest blog post on Facebook and Reddit, or receive an email when your monthly web traffic exceeds 1M. You can do it all with Netvibes. To create your own Potion, simply pick the Trigger(s) and Action(s) you want to take place. To learn more about Potions, please visit our FAQ page.

Samsung’s ARTIK is an IoT development platform that supports a wide variety of smart devices and apps, including the Runkeeper app, iHealth oximeter, Fitbit, and other wearables. By bringing together ARTIK as the data collection layer and Netvibes as the automation layer, Netvibes and Samsung are empowering users to do more with the Internet of Things.

Trend-Tracing Triggers: The Next Evolution in Business Analytics Automation


With Trend-Tracing Triggers, you can create Potions based on historical data and predictive analytics. Go beyond what just happened; automate business actions based on what is currently happening or what is forecast to happen in the future.

Potions (available for all Netvibes dashboards) make it simple to program interactions between your apps, data and connected devices. [To learn more about Potions, please visit our FAQ page].

Business professionals often use Netvibes Potions to automate decision-making based on data insights. For example: When monthly web traffic exceeds 1M, then send an email to the CEO. Our enterprise customers tell us they love Potions because they always know immediately when something important has just happened.

With new Trend-Tracing Triggers, Netvibes takes BI automation to the next level. Instead of just triggering when something happens, Potions can now analyze past data and use predictive analytics to identify current trends and predict the future. This means you can automate actions based on complex data patterns. For example: When monthly web traffic increases by more than 10% for five days in a row, then email the latest charts and schedule a team meeting.

New: Shared Libraries for Dashboards


Only Netvibes dashboards allow you to custom-pick the sources you want to listen to, using your Personal Corpus. Today we are pleased to take source-curation a step further with the launch of Shared Libraries, now available for all Netvibes dashboards. Libraries are customized lists of sources that are searchable, shareable and Potion-ready to help you track and analyze precisely what matters to your business.

All Netvibes Premium users can create their own custom Libraries; simply select the sources you want to include in your Library. These Libraries can then be shared with and used by all Netvibes users–including Basic and VIP users. (Compare all features here). Shared Libraries retain the same sources included in the original publisher’s Library. That means when you share a Library, all of your Library-subscribers will see the same list of articles. For example, if your Premium dashboard has 12 months of AutoSave articles and you create a Library, then all of the AutoSave articles will appear in your Shared Library.

Libraries can contain an unlimited number of sources and articles and are continuously updated. PR agencies can create separate Libraries to track different types of media, such as: “Tier-1 Business Press,” “Trade Press,” “Developer blogs,” etc. Professional users may want to share Libraries with colleagues and peers as way of spreading knowledge and establishing thought leadership–for example: “Top IoT blogs” or “Big Data publications.”

Subscribe to any website using Netvibes + Feedity


As you may know, you can follow and read articles from any website using your Netvibes dashboard. Simply add the site’s RSS feed. For websites that do not offer RSS, you can use a service like Kimono Labs or Feedity to create your own RSS feed. On Monday, February 29, Kimono Labs is shutting down its service, but you can continue to use Feedity with Netvibes. Here’s how it works.

If you are currently using Kimono Labs to import articles to Netvibes, please be aware that your feeds will stop working on February 29, 2016. (More details on Kimonolabs.com). You will need to use an alternative service, like Feedity, to continue following non-RSS websites on your dashboard.
