Who can do this?
Any user with Add & Upload permissions in a collection can add media they own to the collection.
Any user with Remove permissions in a collection can remove media from the collection.
EchoVideo administrators (full or delegated) who are members of a collection do not have a library page, but can still add/remove media to the collection, either from within the collection itself or from the Collections sharing section of the Media Details page.
Adding media to a Collection simply makes your media accessible to other members of the collection. Members can then view the media, but may also be able to copy, download, or share the media to other locations.
The menu button on the media tile in your library contains an Add to Collection command. Use this to add this piece of media to any collection you have add media permissions for.
Adding media to a collection can also be done from:
- From within the Collection itself
- From the Collections sharing section of the Media Details page
You can use the below instructions to Remove media from a collection for any collection you have Remove permissions for. Simply open the Add to Collection modal as described, and click the X next to the collection listed. Remember, however, that Add and Remove permissions are granted separately, and just because you can add media does not mean you can also remove it (and vice versa).
To add media to a collection from the media tile menu
- Click Library from the main menu.
- Use the Filters and/or Search box to find the library item you want to add to a collection.
- Hover over the media tile and click the Menu button, as identified in the below figure.
- Select Add To Collection from the media options menu.
The Collections modal appears listing any collections this media already resides in.
- Click the Add to drop-down menu to show a list of collections you have add media permissions for. REMEMBER: The collections shown only include those in which you have permission to add media.
If the list is very long, you can type into the top portion of the drop-down to narrow your selections by matching Collection Name.
Select the collection you want to add this media to.
Once selected, the collection appears in the list, as shown in the below figure. The media also appears in the Media tab of the collection.
When finished, click Done to close the Collections modal.
Repeat the above steps to share the item into other collections. All of the collections that contain this media also appear in this list.
Click View for any collection listed to go to the Media tab for that collection.
Click the X next to a collection to remove this media from that collection.
The X button ONLY appears if you also have "Remove" privileges in the collection. Add & Upload and Remove media rights are separately granted permissions in each collection; you may be able to add media to a collection but not remove it, and vice versa.
