Collections

It’s likely that you will want to break your portfolio into separate pages. However, you will want to keep the pages organized together in a way that is easy to share with others.

Collections allows you to combine multiple pages into a single portfolio on the system.  Once you have created a collection and added pages to it, you can share that collection with others via a single link.

Creating a Collection

To create a new collection, perform the following

  1. Log into the portfolio tool.
  2. Click on Portfolio then Collections.
  3. Click on the New Collection button.
  4. Give the collection a name and an optional description.
  5. Click the Next: Edit Collection Pages button.
  6. Select the pages you want to include in the collection and click the Add Pages button.  If you want to reorder the pages, use the up and down arrows next to each page in the collection list.
  7. Click Done.

Once you've added the pages to a collection, you want to make it easier to navigate.  This is as simple as adding the Navigation block to each of your pages:

  1. Log into the portfolio tool.
  2. Click on Portfolio.
  3. Click the Edit Content and Layout button next to the page (it looks like a grey pencil).
  4. Click the General tab, and drag the Navigation block into your page. A dialog box will appear.
  5. Select your collection and click Save.  You can optionally set a title for this block if you don't want the name of the collection to appear.
  6. Click the Done button.
