Using collections

With the Stories Manager open, you'll see the Collections panel on the left.

Here you'll find the default collections and any custom collections your team has created. Click on a specific collection name to see its respective stories.

You can use collections to address two main objectives: 

1. Internal organization 

2. Live embedding

To use collections for internal organization, create as many collections as needed to which you and your team can gradually add relevant stories.

To use collections to embed on your site as part of a UGC or related story grid, create and curate collections as before before following the embed instructions below.

Creating collections

To use create a collection, click + New on the left side panel in Stories Manager.

Enter a name for your collection and hit Save. If you are using the collection for internal purposes only, you do not have to add an embed page URL.

Adding to a collection

To add a story to a collection, select the story from Stories Manager and click on More from the right side panel.

Then, click Add to Collection:

Select the desired collection/s from the dropdown menu and click Done to save your changes.

Embedding collections

If you are using Collections to publish stories directly to a specific landing page or site, follow the instructions as above but enter the URL of the page you want to publish to into the Embed Page URL field.

To publish the collection as part of a UGC campaign, follow the instructions mapped out in this article.

To publish the collection below another Maker embed, follow the instructions mapped out in this article.
