Help support DocumentCloud's continued development
DocumentCloud Logo
Ever wish it was easier to keep tabs on an agency for interesting new documents they're posting? We've got you covered! Last month, we shared a preview version of a scraper/site alert tool that automatically watched a page for new document uploads, archived them into your DocumentCloud and then alerted you when it found something that matched the criteria you set for it.

We've since taken your early feedback and launched it for everyone, so you can now set up a site monitor in just two steps (with two extra one-time steps the first time around). To get started, log in to your DocumentCloud account, under Add-Ons > Browse All Add-Ons activate Scraper, and then select it in the dropdown to get started.
Full Guide
Thursday: Share your feedback and learn how to build your own DocumentCloud Add-Ons. If you get a chance to give the new Scraper tool a try or are interested in building your own scripts, scrapers and extensions right into the DocumentCloud platform, we'd love to talk! We're having a user feedback session tomorrow at 2 p.m. Eastern on Zoom. We encourage people with ideas on how we can improve the usability and utility as well as those interested in building their own tools into DocumentCloud to join. We'll have breakout rooms available if needed so whether you're just interested learning more or providing feedback or want to do some programming yourself, there will be a great chance to share.
