How to Create a New Collection

If you’re an Admin, here’s how you can create a collection by:

  1. Click on the Collections link in the left-hand navigation.

  2. Click the New collection button on the right side of the page.

  3. Enter your new collections name and description.

  4. To create a sub-collection, select a parent collection.

  5. Click Create.

PRO TIP: Collections can have select permissions that will make them private or only available to select individuals, which is what we call Secret Collections.

You can learn more about Collection permissions within this article!

Collections can be anything you want but here are just a few suggestions:

  • Getting Started

    This collection will be great for organizing welcome and onboarding videos for new hires. Help new team members get to know your company more.

  • All-Hands

    This collection can be used to organize all your company all-hands so that everyone on your team can watch the video at any time.

  • Sales

    This collection is great for keeping all your sales demos and training materials in one place so that you can onboard new sales team member faster.

  • Engineering

    Collections work for individual organizations in your company too. Engineers can keep their product demos and screen captures here to show off their work and get feedback.

Setting Permissions for your New Collection

Rewatch makes it easy to customize your Collections.

Here are some finer details that will help you with structuring your channel and its Collections based on your org chart or permission-based needs!

View-only Collections

If you set all Channel Members as viewers, this allows everyone on your team to view the videos added to that Collection.

Customizing Secret Collections

By default, Collections are visible to the entire team. Any collection can be made secret by setting Channel members to Restricted using the dropdown in the People with access section on any collection’s edit page.

Secret collections are only visible to channel owners and people that are added to the collection.

  • Viewers

    These users are able to view all media within the collection, but they're not able to make any changes or contributions to the Collection.

  • Contributors

    These users can only view existing media and add helpful content to the Collection.

  • Editors

    Any member of your channel can be made a Collection editor of a collection. This will allow them to control the collection’s settings, access, and visibility. Learn more.

Managing Permissions for Creating Top-Level Collections

Optionally, you can choose to let all members of your channel create collections or restrict access to just specific members or groups in Rewatch. Here’s how Admins can manage permissions:

  1. Click Admin console in the bottom of the left-hand sidebar.

  2. Click Permissions in the left-hand navigation.

  3. Under Video & collections, choose who can create top-level collections, then click on Save Changes.

Sending Collection Notifications to Slack

You can send notifications to your team when new videos are added to your collection. Learn more about connecting Rewatch to Slack.
