In this topic you will learn how to create collections and select the videos that will be displayed on portal experiences.

Creating a collection

Ordering and nesting collections

To change the order of how the collections will appear on your site click the Videos icon in the left navigation.

Moving a collection

Click and drag on the collection name or move icon () and drag the collection to a new position. The separator line indicates if the collections are at the same level or nested. In this example, the Brightcove Player collection is moved to the top. The separator line indicates that all collections are at the same level.

Nesting a collection

Click and drag on the collection name or move icon () and drag the collection to a new position. Dragging to the right will indent the separator line indicating that this collection will be nested. In this example, the Upload Module collection is moved and the separator line indicates that it will be nested under the Video Cloud Studio collection.

After the collection is nested, the nesting will be reflected in the Manage Collections dialog.

Note: The number of levels that can be nested is based upon the template.

The Showcase, Mosaic and Chronicle templates do not support nesting.
