Monday, the Tip Day: Sweeping inside Ziepod
posted on Monday, August 13, 2007

If you subscribe to lots of podcasts or news feeds, sure you will get lots of new episodes and posts every day. At the end of the day, after readings tens of pages of posts and listens to hundreds of minutes of episodes, what will you have in your hands? Remember what is left after the party? One word, junk! Time to start sweeping the ground. Unfortunately, we didn't put a vacuum cleaner into the Ziepod setup but we did better than that. We put an automated sweeper which helps you clean up your Ziepod.

Sweeper is one of the tools that everybody needs to have. It has couple of settings which allows you to define what type of items you want to remove from inside Ziepod. Among others, most useful of those settings is being able to define a time interval to remove old posts. For example you can delete those posts that are older than 7 days. Other than that, you can set sweeper:

  • To delete only read or played items
  • Not to touch any downloaded episode
  • Not to delete rated episodes
  • To delete episodes larger than given size
  • While settings enables you to to customize your clean up process, being able to use that customized sweeper inside specific podcast, or inside group of podcasts, or even inside whole Ziepod allows you to finish your clean up quickly. Now what you need is how to launch the sweeper.

  • In subscriptions tab, choose the subscription you like to sweep, then you will see "Sweeper" button in the toolbar. Press it to start your sweep.
  • If you like to sweep inside group of subscriptions, choose those subcriptions in the treeview and then make a right click. Focus on "More commands" menu option and then click "Run Post Sweeper inside" option.
  • If you like to make a general sweep inside your Ziepod, go to the Home tab. Inside the frame named "One-Click Away Functions" you will see a link "Sweep". Click that.
  • Now you have more powerful tool than a vacuum cleaner and know how to use it. Hope you make use of this feature. We believe sweeper feature is one of most used features but not a complete one. We will be working on that to make it better in upcoming releases. Do you have a suggestion about it? Just use ALT+F keyboard shortcut to send your suggestion or any question you can come up with. We will be listening to you.

    Till the next tip, take care of yourself and your Ziepod,
