What are collections & why should I care? (Updated October 15, 2019) - Something called 'collections' just showed up on the edocr page. Let's discuss this cool new feature. A collection is a folder of documents, similar to having a directory folder on your computer. Think of it as a portfolio or binder. It is a place you can gather common content together and control that content with a set of access rules. So, take your documents, with various purpose and content, from this: To this: Our Basic (free) account provides you two collections (3 if you were an edocr user before we migrated databases in 2016). Your collections appear on your profile page. *Please note the default 'My Documents' Collection is a public folder with no access control options, unlike all other Collections. Possibilities for collections include gating all of the documents. You can gate your content in a number of different ways, for example: ● Require email for access (leadgen) ● Provide a unique URL which is not discoverable ● Allow access by a list you input to view documents ● Allow access by a list you input to upload documents And, just added in October 2019 are a new Collection type called Collaboration Collections. This allows you to create a collection and provide access to a defined group to submit documents to you that only the collection owner can view and edit. Read more here. The settings you choose will apply to all of the documents in that Collection, overriding any contrary Document setting. Creation of a Collection with one of these options, or just publicly available looks like this: Examples of why you might choose various privacy settings are: ● This collection is about a certain subject someone may 'follow' ● this collection is private to my 10th grade math class ● this collection requires a valid email address to be accessed (for #leadgen) ● this collection requires a $2 monthly subscription fee ● these documents are 'for sale' ● this collection is private between me and my friends only ● This collection is for my students to upload there documents to, but only I can read and mark them up A collection may also be completely open to the public for exposure and SEO, that anyone can view. This is the default setting. Sellers of content, users with a .edu registration, published authors, and our paid Professional Level ($9.99 per year) (free upgrade through the end of 2019) can have up to ten total collections. Once you have created a Collection, you may also use a Collection web link to provide direct access to the Collection, by clicking on and copying the link icon next to the Collection Name on your main Profile Page, as shown here: Hope you love our progress! And we love feedback & suggestions, so keep them coming!
