Integration: Smart Alerts Generic Webhook

Introducing a new delivery method to receive your Meltwater Alerts - a Generic Webhook! What is it?Nearly all organizations use some form of a collaboration tool to conduct business. Meltwater has supported direct integrations with Slack, Microsoft Teams, and DingTalk. But what if you don’t use one of these messaging services? Are you able to receive alerts as well? Yes! Meltwater has taken the next step in our integration plans - a Generic Webhook. A webhook in web development is a method of augmenting or altering the behavior of a web page or web application with custom callbacks. To simplify, it’s how one app can send an automated message to another app. In this instance, it allows Meltwater to send Smart Alerts to other apps. Using an automation platform such as Zapier, Make, or IFTT (If This Than That), you can connect to Discord, Google Chat, and many more! Using the generic webhook, also allows you to have the ability to receive alerts directly to an API (configuration required).  What's the value? By enabling this integration right from within Meltwater, you can now receive automated, AI-powered alerts sent directly to your preferred channels. Having a centralized channel with all Alerts flowing in will allow your team to better collaborate and act on business-critical news, market shifts/trends, and competitive intelligence. Since there is no limit on either the number of connections or connections per channel, you are able to customize your integrations directly into the channels you are already working in.   To learn more and for step by step instructions, check out our Help Center Article, Set up Alerts with a Generic Webhook Integration.

Klear: Language filter for TikTok and Instagram Search + Mark Recruit Questions as Required

Currently, you can identify and categorize the following languages: English, Spanish, German, French, and Italian.  Mark Recruit Questions as RequiredYou now have the ability to create customizable recruit forms, that beautifully promote ambassador programs and help you collaborate with your clients. Recruit form capabilities have been updated and allow you to mark specific custom questions as required. Perfect for capturing information crucial to the screening process for potential ambassadors.  What's the value?Language Filter for TikTok and Instagram Search - When searching for influencers, it’s important to not only understand what someone posts, and where they live, but also what language they post in. When attempting to expand into new markets, or reach different cohorts, posting in their native language, rather than defaulting to English, is crucial when building loyalty and connection. Mark Recruit Questions as Required - If a question is optional, that gives an applicant the opportunity to not answer. However, there are times when a specific question is imperative to understand if this applicant is right for your ambassador campaign or not. By requiring an answer, you can save time by easily sorting through respondents based on their responses, and ensuring you get the crucial information you need from each applicant.

Explore Search Improvements

We’ve been working on making improvements to our Explore search experience, by expanding and upgrading some already available features.  Expanded search for emojis  We have extended support for searching for emojis via the in title, content, and ingress boolean operators. You can now search for emojis within specific areas of a result. e.g title: 🙂.  Learn more  Extended support for punctuation and currency Extended support for punctuation by handling more punctuation marks which will provide better recall. Expanded support for international currency symbols: ƒ, ℳ, 元, 円, 圆, 圓, ḯ, ₺, ₻, ₼, ₽, ₾, ₿, e.g searching for bitcoin symbol, ₿ return results with that symbol.  Learn more  Improved handling of Full-width/Half-width characters Searches including Full-with/Half- width characters, e.g Cat/cat,  are now handled identically which makes it easier to search since you no longer need to explicitly search for both variations.

Most noticeable when copy/pasting text into Meltwater. We have removed the dependency on the type of apostrophe used, and both types are treated equal: curly apostrophes/quotes ( ’ ) or straight apostrophes/quotes ( ' ) ’ or ´ Example: When searching for women`s, documents that contain women`s and women's will now be included in search results.   Upgraded support for searches in Thai, Khmer, Lao (Laotian), and Myanmar We’ve upgraded search results for Thai, Khmer, Lao (Laotian), and Myanmar languages in Explore results.  Learn more  Wildcard performance optimizationWe have also done some search optimizations related to wildcards that will make results run and return faster.
