Create and Manage Collections

  • Updated

You can create a Collection if you want to share more than one asset with internal or external users. In addition, you can feature Collections on your homepage to drive users to specific Collections of assets. By default, Collections are only visible to the creator unless you want to share them or mark them as public.

Learn how to manage permissions of each collection, create public collections, and transfer collection ownership.
