New Collection

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.

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.

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.
