Create a collection in Workfront Library

You can organize content by adding it to collections that you have created or that have been shared with you. For information on sharing collections, see Share a Workfront Library item with other users.

When you create a collection, you have the option to select the image you want as the collection cover image. If you don’t select a cover image, the collection thumbnail is gray as long as the collection remains empty. When you add content to the collection, Workfront Library randomly selects a cover image from the added content. If a collection contains only folders, the cover remains gray.

For information on changing the cover image, see Change the cover image on an item in Workfront Library.

You can create an unlimited number of collections.
