Subscribe to a dataset to follow updates

Is there a dataset that you are following closely?  Would you like to know when that dataset is updated in any way?  You can get email or in product updates for when a dataset is updated by watching a dataset.

How to Watch a Dataset

You can watch a dataset to get notifications on specific assets. On each dataset's primer page, there will be a Watch button and flag that allows a user to opt-in to watch a particular asset. 



To watch the dataset, simply click one of these options while logged into your Socrata account. You can click the button again at any time to unwatch the dataset.

Furthermore, you can customize how you receive updates in your Socrata notification settings.

For a short video on this process please see: How to Watch a Dataset

  • I noticed that the Subscribe dialog still provides an option to Add to (the now defunct) Google Reader.
