Modified on: Mon, 5 Dec, 2022 at 9:53 PM

Sharing news will give you a summary of details about each article in an email format. You can choose which details about each article you would like to include in the email and specify the order of the news items. 

For Canadian Cision accounts that may include CEDROM news articles or clips when you download and/or email a summary with CEDROM print/online content, we will record the number of CEDROM articles included in the clipbook to comply with CEDROM requirements.
