How to Add Mentions of TNC to your Keyword Search

In Meltwater, most searches have been set up without filtering by mentions of TNC.  You may also want to build your new searches without mentions of TNC to get a handle on where the conversation is on a topic. However, you may then want to add in mentions of TNC to understand our share of that conversation. There is an easy way to toggle on and off for your keywords to mention or not mention TNC.

A custom category has been created called TNC that you can toggle on and off as a filter in Explore. Now you can look at overall results for keywords with and without mention of TNC. 

Toggling On and Off TNC Mentions

  1. From inside your search, below the search box, click the filter dropdown labeled "Custom categories
  2. Find the "TNC (Include in results)" checkbox. Check the box to include TNC mentions or uncheck the box to remove TNC mentions from search results.
