Explore how you can create Collections within

OS: Windows and Mac OS

Note: Microsoft is closing on December 15, 2017, and have asked users to remove or migrate their content from this site.

Collections in are essentially exactly what the name suggests! These are "Collections" that enable you to gather various files as well as content created from around the web which interests you and group them all together. Collections work as virtual folders that store all sorts of content. This is great if you are doing a project and want all the content to be placed in a Collection without actually moving all the content to the Collection itself!

You can place various files in Collections and later share and embed the entire Collection in other websites and blogs. If you look closely on the home page, you will see a section which displays Collections created by others, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1 below.
