    Hi there,

    We're importing data from an external data feed into the news module and would like to know two things:
    1. How reliable is the update interval? (My thinking here is about when an gets dumped because there's no activity. How does Sitefinity keep the task/interval going?)
    2. If there's an update to one of the articles in the feed will Sitefinity pick that up? For example if a story was published on the feed but had incorrect information, which was updated 2 hours later, will Sitefinity pick that up and re-enter that data into the news module?

    Hello Jacques,

    1. Sitefinity is using scheduled tasks in order to keep updating the feed by the specified time. You can take a look at the following Documentation article about them. 

    2. Depending on how you have configured the external feed to update (see image) the new content will going to be pulled and the item will be updated directly (in your case the news item will be updated).
