3 If you have forgotten your password, click forgot your password : Mail report Auto Stats This feature provides a graphical representation of the data within an agent and can be setup to send once a week for each user. Meltwater Mail Reports Morning Reports: The Morning Reports are delivered every morning to each user based on their own preferences. These reports can be customized per user, where one person may receive a report at 06:00am EST and other users have option receive their reports at alternative time(s). Meltwater Dashboard The Dashboard displays a variety of widgets for quick views of your account across several graphs and charts, clouds, maps, and tables. These widgets can be viewed by day, week and month. The reports are just the tip of the iceberg and aim to provide our clients insight to their company, market, trends and anything else of importance. Afternoon Reports The Afternoon Reports will provide an update to what has happened from when the morning report was sent. For example, if a Morning Report is sent at 06:00am EST and an Afternoon Report is sent at 16:00pm EST, the Afternoon Report will include any articles that appeared from 06:01am until 15:59pm. As It Happens Alerts The As It Happens option will send an to the client as soon as the article is published and picked up by the Meltwater News system. We recommend using this option when there is a specific topic or crisis management, and not for everyday use.
4 Hits and Percentage Widget The Cloud displays the words that occur most frequently in the articles. The Hits shows the number of articles collected for that particular agent. Top Publication Widget The Percentage shows the difference between the previous week and the present week. It checks the articles and sources and calculates the percentage accordingly. The Top Publication displays sources with the highest contribution of articles to an Agent. Sentiments Meter and Word Cloud Widget. The Sentiment meter and word Cloud are made possible with our NLP (Natural Language Processing) technology. Countries Widget The Countries widget displays where the news articles are being published. The Sentiment conveys the dominant tone of voice in articles belonging to an Agent.
5 Translation and Users The Translation and Users menu are located in the footer of the Dashboard application as links. Translation: link you can translate articles into different languages. 4. By language. Each source is manually configured by a technician who chooses a language for that source. This will be important for many users in localized regions. Quick Tools Users: link you can change the user preferences and account settings. The Agents page gives you a selection of Quick Tools as below which allow the user to forward (send) the article to users, archive, hide (delete), or translate that article from the Agent. Meltwater Agents If an article in your report has a + to the left of it, you can click on the + to view the multiple sources that picked that article up. The Agents are probably the most important part of Meltwater s User Interface, as these are the keyword searches that are setup to find the latest articles. They are built from the user s keyword or boolean specification. Agents can be broken down in many different ways: 1. Broken down by Geographic region. In some places (e.g. Australia and China) we have broken down by sub region, such as Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales...etc. 2. By percentile, or importance/significance. We work with Nielsen Analytics show how many unique visitors a source has had, how many total page views, etc. If you break down by this method, you are able to pick the top 10% of sources by viewers and so on. Editing You are able to add the opening text (otherwise called the ingress), the hit sentence (the part of the sentence where this article was picked up), the archived articles (the ones that are built in to the agent from the archive) and information about the source. Rating is another feature that includes automatic sentiment based on natural language processing (NLP). 3. By type. We can break down sources by type; for example News sources, Blog sources, Tenders and Subscription Sources.
6 When editing/building an agent, be aware that there are options for case sensitivity. These are important when searching company names, and will also be an excellent way to filter articles when searching company mentions. Keywords If you search for a keyword, it will match this keyword if it appears as a single word. This means, before and after the word are non-word characters. Those can be space, punctuation, special characters - anything that is not letter or number. Example: photo Source Selection will return: photo photo-camera but will not return: photos photograph As you saw in the previous image, you can click Source Selection tab. This is the most important part of the agents tab; this is where you will be able to choose a geographic region that the agents are searching from. Boolean: Information The Boolean search is part of the Meltwater News user interface under the agents tab that allows us to construct advanced searches. Priority of Boolean Logic is: AND - highest OR - medium NOT - least
7 Make sure to group the keywords correctly. To group them, put them in open and close parenthesis. Here s another example where it s easy to forget all the parentheses do not use: (cat and dog) or (mouse and cheese) and not rat Depending on what you mean, use one of the following: ((cat and dog) or (mouse and cheese)) and not rat (cat and dog) or ((mouse and cheese) and not rat) Boolean: Tips USING PARENTHESES Always use ( ) if the search expression contains a combination of more than one of the boolean keywords (and, or, not, near, onear, xnot). This means that both of these are OK: The main point here is: if in doubt, always use parentheses. They never hurt (provided, of course, that they are used logically correct according to what you mean). The only exception is when using near this is explained next. USING NEAR AND PARENTHESES TOGETHER The near keywords (near, near/n, onear and onear/n) can only be used between words, phrases and subexpressions which includes or and near, not with subexpressions which include and. This means that you cannot use: cat near (dog and mouse) cat and dog and mouse cat or dog or mouse But you can use: (cat or dog) near (mouse or rat) But do not use: cat and dog or mouse USING ONEAR Instead use one of the following: (cat and dog) or mouse cat and (dog or mouse)... depending on what you mean. Using this functionality it can work to match your keywords when they are mentioned two or more times in an article. If you want to match company name when it occurs two or more times in a document, one can use: (companyname onear companyname)
8 (bill xnot bill gates ) ~ (REGULAR EXPRESSION) this can be used only on a given field, as the one listed below. After the ~ you can put a Regular expression. Example: url:=~.base=sft. will match anywhere in the url for the text base=sft title: title: this will only match against the title This can be used in combination with any of the operators above ie: title: cat and dog which says that cat must exist in the title and dog must appear somewhere in the text (title, ingress, body text) will hit Bill Murrey hates Bill Gates and Bill likes Linux but not Bill Gates wears a wig. or dog xnot hot dog This will not give hits in articles where dog is only found in the phrase hot dog. But articles which contain dog in other combinations (for example nice dog ) will give hits, even if these articles also contain the phrase hot dog. ingress: ingress: this will only match against the ingress This can be used in combination with any of the operators above. content: content: this will match against the full document content This can be used in combination with any of the operators above. author: author: Bill Murphy This can be used in combination with any of the operators above. country: = country:= se This can be used in combination with any of the operators above. USING THE ^ CHARACTER The ^ character (aka: Hi-hat or Circumflex) is used to boost or reduce the score of a word, phrase or subexpression and decide what is more likely to appear in the hit sentence. The default score is 1, so greater numbers can be used to boost the score, while decimal numbers between 0 and 1 can be used to reduce the score. Note the difference here to the search: dog not hot dog This will not give hits for articles that contain nice dog (or any other combination of dog ) if these articles also contain the phrase hot dog. xnot can be used several times after a word/phrase, they are all tied to the word/phrase to the left of the first xnot. So this ignores dog found in both the phrases hot dog and dog eat dog : cat or dog xnot hot dog xnot dog eat dog or mouse And it is exactly the same as this (using parentheses is always a better idea anyway): cat or (dog xnot hot dog xnot dog eat dog ) or mouse For example: cat and (dog^2 or mouse^0.5) says that dog should be preferred in the hit sentence before cat, and that cat should be preferred before mouse. USING XNOT The xnot keyword is typically used when you want to search for a word or phrase, but you want to ignore it in special combinations with other words and phrases. For example:
9 SYNTAX DICTIONARY Here are the keywords and characters used in the syntax for search expressions with boolean logic: And used between two compulsory words/phrases/subexpressions (both has to occur) Or used between two alternative words/phrases/subexpressions (either has to occur) Not used in front of a word/phrase/subexpression that should not occur Near used between two compulsory words/phrases that has to occur with maximum 4 words between them (when using near), or maximum N words between them (when using near/n, where N is a positive number). May also be used between subexpressions which contains words, phrases and the boolean operators OR, NEAR or ONEAR. Onear ordered near - similar to near, but the words also has to occur in the given order Xnot when used between words/phrases, the word/phrase on the left will not give a hit in those places in the text where the word/phrase on the right also matches. Another way to look at it: Before trying to match the word/phrase on the left, all the words/phrases on the right is temporarily deleted from the document. ( ) used to enclose subexpressions, i.e. to set the order of interpretation for and, or, and not used to enclose phrases (sequences of two or more words) * used as a wildcard for zero or more characters (only letters and digits, does not match punctuation or space). It can be used anywhere; at the start, inside and at the end of words (which may or may not be part of a phrase) Meltwater Search In addition to the stable search criteria you monitor in real-time, the Meltwater Search tool allows you to search in a targeted retrospective manner. Meltwater Search also allows for additional searches to be performed at any stage during your subscription at no added cost (all users on your account have access to this powerful feature). Meltwater Search can be operated via simple keyword searching, or for more filtered results, Meltwater s Boolean search technology. These searches may be new and need not be linked to your account s pre-existing searches. They can also be drilled down geographically or by other criteria. The results can be stored, forwarded, and translated, just like any other search results. This tool enables powerful retrospective searching, looking back at least eight years. Boolean searching allows Meltwater Search to be deployed to hunt for a needle in a haystack quickly and effectively.? used as a wildcard for one character (only letters and digits, does not match punctuation or space). It can be used anywhere; at the start, inside and at the end of words (which may or may not be part of a phrase) ^ used to boost or reduce the score of a word, phrase or sub expression and decide what is more likely to appear in the hit sentence. The default score is 1, so greater numbers can be used to boost the score, while decimal numbers between 0 and 1 can be used to reduce the score. For example: cat and (dog^2 or mouse^0.5) says that dog should be preferred in the hit sentence before cat, and that cat should be preferred before mouse.

This is because Twitter has the potential to drown out other social media sources if included in the same search. In addition, Twitter has rules of engagement to prevent its excessive use. The Boolean capabilities on the various sorts of social media currently differ, because the rules Q.
