Find it in Mynewsdesk: Settings > Newsroom settings

These are the basic settings for your newsroom. Build your newsroom and set the default functionalities here.

Name – The name of your company, which will be shown on the first page of your newsroom. This name will also appear in the email inbox of the receiver.  

Heading – This is where you enter the heading for your company description, e.g. your company’s philosophy or slogan.

Company logo – Upload a high-resolution version of your company logo. We support JPEG, GIF and PNG formats.


Company description – Add the company description that will be shown on your newsroom footer.

Company description as a “boilerplate” – Add the company’s signature that will be shown at the bottom of your press releases. Change the company description when it is not relevant to the content in the publishing template.

Links – Additional links that will be visible in the footer of your newsroom. You could, for example, add the link to your own website here.

Newsroom URL – Change the URL (web address) of your newsroom on mynewsdesk.com (eg. www.mynewsdesk.com/sv/fake-company)
Note: only do this if your company changes the name or before you go live with your newsroom. Links to the previously published content will stop working if you change the name in the URL.

Comments – Manage comments on your published content.

License – Specify the rights to your images, videos and documents. For more information, click the question mark icon next to the setting you want to learn more about. This is a default setting, you can pick a specific license for each image you publish.

Company Details – The address of your company will be shown in the footer of your newsroom.

Language – Choose the language for your newsroom interface.

Custom tracking (Professionals / Enterprise) – If you use Google Analytics, add your profile ID and get statistics for your newsroom. This is to gather all your online statistics in one place.

News carousel on the main page of Newsroom – Click here to stop the module in your newsroom from rotating with your latest stories.

Categorization – By adding categories, you reach out to journalists and editors who subscribe to material from Mynewsdesk. Make sure you add relevant categories and remove irrelevant ones in order to reach the right audience.
Choose default categories here. Change the categories for each piece of content you create to make the them correspond better with the right audience. Remember to always stay relevant!

By adding a sub-category, you will both reach subscribers of the main category as well as the sub-category. If you only add the main category, you will reach subscribers of the main category (not all the subcategories).

The same principle applies to regions. Only add regions when your content is aimed at a specific region and if you want to reach out to local journalists.

If you add a topic AND a region – your content will be sent out to subscribers of the chosen topics throughout your country AND subscribers of the chosen regions.

You may select up to 10 subjects and 10 regions.

External sources – Add your social media feeds, blog feed, or podcast feed into your newsroom.

Click Add feed, and select one of the following types: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr or Instagram. You can also add RSS feeds, e.g. from blogs. You can move external sources around by clicking and dragging them to the place you want to put them.

Follow button – The follower button is found in your newsroom, and when a visitor clicks on this button they will receive all your press releases, news and blog posts.

Make it even easier to become your follower by adding your follower button on your own website or newsletter. Copy the entire code and paste it into the external site.

You can also add the follower link into, for example, your email signature. Mark the piece of code you find in between the first quotation marks.
