Available Thursday, Collections will offer a single, streamlined interface for organizing your media and sharing it with your audience. Now you can manage and share media with exactly the people you choose, without leaving the Media Library.
Collections replace Categories as the primary way of organizing media. We’ve unified the management experience of Categories with the control and security of Groups. Sharing your media is now much easier and you can share media with as many different individuals and user groups as you like. You can instantly see who has access to your media in the new members sidebar.
We’re also introducing new controls for managing user permissions and roles. Now users can have different permissions across different Collections in your site. Someone can be a student in one Collection and a manager in another. The new permissions page let’s you configure and control exactly what you want your users and groups to have access to.
From now to February 15th, site owners will have the opportunity to reorganize their libraries with Collections. After this date, all MediaCore sites will be automatically upgraded to Collections. Site-owners have the option to opt-in to start using Collections at any time before the 15th.
