Set up collections for your project

Collections are like folders. They let you simplify the organization of your content according to your business structure and needs.

With collections, you can:

  • Create space for all departments within your project to eliminate silos.
  • Organize global and regional content within one project to enable easy reuse.
  • Separate channel-specific and channel-agnostic content within the same project for easier governance.

Check out other examples of the flexibility the collections bring to your project.

Collections are currently available on request through an early access program.

    Stay tuned for improvements

    Use collections from the get-go for easier content governance in the future. We're currently working on significant improvements in this area that will allow limiting access to specific roles.
