How do I create a collection?

To create a new collection:

  1. From the navigation menu on the left, select Collections.
  2. Click New Collection.
  3. Enter a name for your collection, with a meaningful name that describes the purpose, common interest, or organizing principle of the collection.
  4. Set its visibility, either Only visible to members (members-only collection) or Visible to everyone (public collection).
  5. Move groups and people to the right column to add them or to the left column to remove them. Use Ctrl+Click to select more than one person or group.

    You can also search by entering part of a person's or group's name, and select them from the list that pops up.

    If your administrator has configured the system to allow you to invite users, you can add someone who isn't an Oracle Social Network user. Enter the person's email address in the search box, then click Invite email_address. When asked if you want to send an invitation, click OK. When you save your changes an email will be sent to the person inviting the person to join Oracle Social Network.

    By default, you see a list of contacts. Click a tab to change your view:

    • Contacts icon Contacts—View a list of your contacts.

    • Groups icon Groups—View a list of your groups.

    Note: You can't add outside users (people outside your company) to a collection. Outside users' names appear in purple text, and they have icons (Outside user avatar) after their names. For more information on outside users, see Outside Users.

Continue by adding related items to your collection as described in How do I add or remove related or referring items?
