Working with Collections

A collection consists of the files (items and compound objects) that have been uploaded from projects to the server and approved. Collection files are stored in a directory on the server. Before they can be viewed by end users, the collection must be indexed.

A new project is associated with a collection as part of its creation. A collection must be added before a project can be associated with it.
