My Collections

A collection is a set of Views that are linked to one another and have the same access permissions. You can create as many collections as you like, but a View cannot appear in more than one collection.

Collections are useful for dividing work into different portfolios. For instance, if you want to create a teaching portfolio for some of your work and a photography portfolio for other work, collections are a good way to keep them separate.
