    Is it possible/has anyone come across a requirement to add a brief newsfeed to the account form? If so, how did you approach it and can you share screenshot of result?

    I created a post about that a while ago. At that time I didn't find anything particular good at that time.

    However, ​Kamalmeet Singh from Microsoft has made this PCF component. It is using Bing News by default, but you can use other sources, e.g. Google News. I haven't tried it out yet myself - and it does require a bit on configuration - but you can find a guide on Github.

    I think that Google News is better than Bing News - especially if you are not only dealing with large corporations, that gets lots of attention in the news. I least I get more hits on Google News when I test with some of our Accounts.

    Thanks! I will try this. I also found an app by Microsoft Labs called Customer Today but it does not install - one of the comments indicate it is not compatible with 9.1 or later.
