The "Collections" feature helps you organize and manage related learning opportunities in one place. You may find this feature helpful if you are:

  • Hosting a PD event that consists of multiple individual sessions in a single timeframe (e.g. multi-session PD days, "pick your session" workshops, etc.)

  • Hosting a PD series that consists of related or identical events happening at different times throughout the year. 

Here are the steps for creating and using collections. 

1: Click the "Learning" option from the sidebar to open the Learning Homepage, then click the blue "Actions" button, and select "Create Collection."

2: In the "Details" section, give your collection a name and a description.

3: Under the "Display Type" section, 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 (for example, choose "Yes" under the Limit number of events you can register for? section if you'd only like participants to be able to register for a specific number of events, or you can allow users to register for all events in the collection with 1 click), then click "Save and Publish Collection."

5: After you've saved and published your collection, you can begin adding events to it by clicking the "Add to collection" button. Once you have filled in the details, the new event will be automatically added to that 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.
