Hi all. We are in the process of creating an intranet 2.0 in my organization and the question has come from on high as to whether it would be possible to feed specific news articles up to an intranet home page from a different site associated with the intranet hub site. I am currently exploring some form of universal tags or something of that nature that could fulfill this task but I wanted to seek insight from the group for alternatives if that doesn't pan out/exist. Any and all advice/guidance is greatly appreciated.

@andrewparrish if you are feeding flows up to the hub site from an associate site, it will feed up all the news posts, you can't specify which posts will flow up.

@andrewparrish Yes, you can create a news web part on Site A that pulls up only News articles from Site B that have a specific managed property. The editor on Site A needs to know the property name and values used on Site B in order to write the query and the property needs to be a managed property, but it is definitely possible if you have metadata on the pages in Site B.

@Susan Hanley Hi! Thank you for the confirmation that it should be possible. I am trying to get this working to show to my VP as we undergo a major facelift of our small intranet.
At the moment I am able to get it to recognize columns within the same page, but I am having no success with the hub site recognizing a column on the site pages page on site B.
Do you by chance no of any blog posts or further instructions that could walk me through this? My SharePoint skills are still in their toddler phase.

@Susan Hanley Thank you so much for the information. You gave us hope to continue pushing through on this ask, and I am happy to report I was able to sit down last Friday night to build it out. It is working beautifully, and my COO was really happy!
