Hi Derek,

YES! It is possible! I do it here for a variety of things here at CirrusOps.

The cheap and easy / low-code way of doing this includes using a service like Zapier or IFTTT. 

In my example, I use Feedly to capture specific RSS feeds. When new items are added to that feed, I have a trigger in Zapier that will write that item to a table in my QuickBase app. From there you can use the QuickBase record to manage the data, and create reports that show you what you want to see. And finally, you take one of those reports (or even just the List All report) and place it on your homepage. 

If you have any questions, please find my contact info in my profile. I am happy to help! =]
