Similar to Tags, Collections allow you to organize asset selections for faster access. Unlike Tags, however, when you create a Collection, it is only visible to you and is not shared across the team.

Collections are a convenient way to, for example, make temporary asset selections for a project, gather some favorite assets, or just quickly group assets for later use.

 

How to use Collections in Connecter?

Creating collections

To create a new collection, go to the Collections tab in the Productivity panel and click the "+" button. Then give the new collection a name and press Enter:

To create a new group, click the Add new collection group button in the top right of the Collections header. Then select one or more collections and use a drag & drop interaction to add to the group:
