In the life of any student, staying on top of competing commitments is tough. That’s why Netvibes is here to help! Create Potions and customize automatic actions to save time, get more out of your studies, and prepare yourself for all aspects of your busy life.
Automate your WordPress blog to reach wider audiences and produce more content. It’s easy with our new WordPress Ingredient for Netvibes Potions.
Netvibes Dashboard Intelligence helps consumers, professionals and teams to monitor and act on the most important information that impacts them online. If you’re new to dashboarding, now is the perfect time to try Netvibes. Everyone who creates a new account at Netvibes.com will automatically receive a free trial of Netvibes VIP for 14 days.
For only $2/month, our Netvibes VIPs enjoy special dashboard features, including:
- Priority support – Have a question or need help? Just ask.
- Universal search – Easily find anything on your dashboard using our powerful search functionality.
- Tracked Topics – Automatically stay informed about topics that are important to you.
- Unlimited Potions – Control interactions between all your IoT devices and apps, without limit.
Today we have more good news for VIPs: you can now use SmartTagging to add your own custom tags and opinions to any article on the dashboard. For example, you can flag articles to read later, classify important articles together, mark items as “Threats” or “Opportunities” or anything else you like.
Today we’ve added two new ingredients so you can do even more with Netvibes Potions. You can now remotely control your Netatmo Thermostat and upload files to Google Drive automatically, in response to custom triggers or events. Let’s see how the new Potion ingredients work.
With Potions, you can be a wizard of the Internet of Things by controlling automatic interactions from your dashboard. Achieve more in your business by automating actions (for example, When website traffic increases for 5 days in a row, then email the team). Or take control of your personal life by automating apps and smart devices (e.g., When I post a photo on Instagram, then automatically share the picture on Facebook and Tumblr).
To create your own Potion, simply mix-and-match the Trigger(s) and Action(s) you want to take place. Potions are fully customizable, and the possibilities are endless! (Learn more about using Potions in our documentation).
Netvibes Universal Search (available for VIP and Premium dashboards) makes it quick and simple to locate any piece of content or information from your dashboard. Simply type in a keyword, use Boolean search terms, or drill down by facets–including people, geographical location, sentiment (negative/positive/neutral), and more.
Beginning today, Premium users can now merge multiple entities together in Universal Search in order to avoid redundancies and analyze data in different ways. Here’s how it works.
In Universal Search, named entities are typed information that can be extracted from your personal corpus or sources. The Netvibes dashboard automatically identifies these entities. For example: “Donald J. Trump” is an entity under the “People” facet, and “Super Bowl” is an entity under the “Event” facet.
Netvibes’ goal is to always provide you with accurate answers to the questions you want to ask. With many redundant names in use for brands, people and events, it can be difficult to get accurate insights on the topics most important to you. Using Mr. Trump as an example, there are many different entities referring to him, such as: “Donaldrump,” “Presiden John Trump,” “Donald J. Tt Trump” and more. By default, the Netvibes dashboard tracks each of these entities separately. If you want to analyze “President Trump” mentions versus “Donald J. Trump” mentions, that’s easy to do.
But what if you want to analyze ALL Trump mentions (regardless of the name people call him)? You can now easily merge entities together on the Netvibes dashboard to avoid redundancies and group similar words together for clearer insights. This feature also streamlines the analytics on your dashboard to reveal more accurate results. For example, a Word Cloud graph showing the most popular words associated with “Donald Trump” might be cluttered with Trump names, but after you merge the entities together, the Word Cloud will list Trump only once, thereby revealing other terms associated with the topic.
To merge entities on the dashboard, click on an entity (example: “Donald J. Trump”), and from the menu click “Associate with.” Following the wizard instructions, you can associate any entity(ies) with another entity. Here are some examples where this is useful:
We’re continually improving our dashboard features to help you get more done with Netvibes. Today we launched our newly improved Universal Search functionality for VIP and Premium users. Let’s explore what’s new.
With Universal Search, you can instantly find whatever you’re looking for by typing in simple keywords or drilling down by facets, including language, sentiment, geographical location and more. Beginning today, you can also use Universal Search to locate apps on the dashboard. To try it, simply search for a keyword, such as the app name or a word contained in the app. Netvibes’ Universal Search bar will auto-return results as you type. Results are automatically divided into categories to help you home in on your target, whether you’re looking for an app, an RSS feed, an article, or something else.
For example, when we search for the keyword “Weather,” Universal Search returns many results across different categories:
Article: “Winter weather slams the east coast”
Feed: The Weather Channel

New wizard: create dashboards on the fly
When you sign up for a new account at netvibes.com, you will see our new wizard that makes it simple to set up your own dashboard. Pick your library(ies) of sources you want to track, enter any keywords of special interest, and click “Dashboard it!” In just a few clicks, you will have a custom dashboard tailored to your interests that can track and analyze any topic. Currently the new wizard is available for new Netvibes accounts only but will soon be expanded to all existing Netvibes users.
Update: This maintenance has been postponed. We will let you know when it is rescheduled.
In order to provide you with an even better service, we’re going to patch our databases and do some maintenance work on our servers. And to do so, we will have to be momentarily offline.
On Tuesday, February 7 morning CET, Netvibes will have a scheduled maintenance that should not exceed 60 minutes. All dashboards (Free, VIP & Premium) will be unavailable during that period and no Pushmail will be sent.
Thank you for your understanding.
