INclude Title in RSS Cards
The RSS feed connector doesn't put the title of the connector in the card it generates in the channel. This can result in confusion knowing which RSS feed it came from.

added 7 feeds to a channel today and the team will mute it if not clear, thus defeating the purpose of having a feed...

Please display the title provided during configuration "Enter a name for your RSS connection", otherwise the content of the channel would be very confusing
Why not showing the configured name...???
Name display is needed. Also, since not all users label information the same it'd be helpful to know RSS address source of notification against each post too (so maybe mouseover of the name could display this too.)
Agree, I have set up 5 RSS feeds in the one channel, and you end up having to manually triage which feeds relate to what.

Voting up, thanks. Unless this is fixed we have to resort to one RSS connector per channel to avoid confusion, which is not an efficient UX design.

Two years later, still not fixed/improved. I am now having to look at pulling the RSS feeds into Teams via Flow or Zapier.

Pretty basic feature that seems to have been missed.

Yes please add this!

I would also very much want this feature. This will also enable easy search for conversations.
Also one conversation per feed item should be created. Otherwise it is hard to start a conversation about a single item.
This is an absolutely MUST HAVE feature. Without it my team can't tell what information is coming in from which connector configuration. The connector already requires a name entry during configuration. Just display that name in the top of the post in the same way the web hook connector does.
Agreed. RSS connector is great, but please show the Digest Name at the top of each post.
Use Case: I want to monitor multiple RSS feeds within Teams. I want to aggregate them into a single view. I have multiple RSS connections into a single channel where they show in the Conversations tab. That works, but you can't tell which source each post came from. The only alternative seems to be to use a separate channel per RSS feed but that doesn't achieve the aggregation.
Better still: also allow a custom graphic per feed instead of the standard RSS icon.
Just started testing RSS connector, this is the only flaw I've found (so far). Having the digest name in the card would enhance readability a lot.
^^ This. I get 20 status updates an hour from various systems, how am I supposed to tell which system it is coming from? this is very basic
