Hi all. I have setup the Bing News connector on SharePoint sites in a couple of different tenants and the results are the same: it's very inconsistent/unreliable. I have configured it with some simple key phrases to search for (there should be lots of news on these topics). In one tenant, nothing appeared at all until about after a week, and now there's been nothing new for days. In the other tenant, it's been configured for more than two weeks and still no news at all.

 

It's a shame that it doesn't function well, because I think it's a potentially awesome way to keep your SharePoint sites fresh and useful.

 

Any thoughts or fix recommendations would be appreciated. Thx.
