Creating and Adding Content to Collections

Overview

Collections provide a way to segment and restrict information within your Content Library. An example use case for this would be if you have content specific to a geographical location and you wanted to restrict and provide access to the users within each region. You can create a collection for each region (such as the United States, Europe, or Asia Pacific) and assign your team members accordingly.

Q&A pairs, document, sections, and catalogs and files can be included in collections.

Permissions

You must be an Admin with access to organization settings in order to create a collection.

Select the applicable tab for your edition of Responsive.
