Create a New Collection

  • Updated

A collection is a grouping of assets that can be organized and shared. Collections can be public for anyone to view or shared selectively with users who can then access the collection even if they lack general permissions. By default, Collections are only visible to the creator unless you want to share them or mark them as public. You can create a Collection from your Asset Bank View or the Collections tab.

You can also feature Collections on your homepage to drive users to specific Collections of assets.

Learn how to manage the permissions of each Collection and transfer collection ownership.
