Add a custom channel to your dashboard

Adding a custom channel allows you to build a channel with only the specific feeds you would like to include based on your preferences.
To add a custom channel, click the 'Add Custom Channel' button in the left nav menu.

A new custom channel will appear to the right of your existing channels where you will see the different feed categories to choose from.
Pick a feed category to see a list of feeds you can add to this channel.
In this list, toggle the feeds on you would like to add. 
You can return to the categories list to add feeds from multiple categories, if desired.
You can also search in the search bar to quickly find feeds in this category.

For more details about each feed, you can click on a feed name to load the feed details page with a description and recent posts.

Once you have finished picking all the feeds you would like in your channel, press done.
You can now see your channel with the latest posts included plus the channel setting menu open. 

In the channel settings menu, you have the following options:

Add Feeds: Takes you back to the feed categories where you can browse additional feeds to add to your channel.
View Feeds: Shows you the feeds you currently have included in this channel.
Name: Allows you to rename your channel. Remember to press the tick icon to save.
Keywords: Filter posts that only contain keywords in this list. Separate by comma to add multiple keywords.
Left/Right arrows: Move your channel left or right to position it where suits on your dashboard.
Delete: Delete the entire channel. This cannot be undone.

To close the channel settings, hit the channel settings button in the title bar of the channel.
