Here are the steps for creating and using collections.
1: In your Events Homepage, click the blue "CREATE" button, and select "Create Collection."
2: Give your collection a name and a description.
3: Decide if you'd like for the individual events within this collection to show up together or separately, when individuals browse the event opportunities.
4: If applicable, select any special settings at the bottom of the page (e.g. if, for example, you'd only like for participants to be able to register for 3 events, or allow users to register for all events in the collection with 1 click) and click "Save and Publish..."
5: You might then choose to click "Create a new event for this collection" - which will automatically add the new event to this particular collection.
In your newly created event - you will see that this event is automatically added to the collection you've created.
You can (optionally) add an event to a collection anytime, by searching for a collection within the "edit event" page.
