    4. On the Add Collection screen:
      • Enter a Name for your Collection.

      • (Teams and Enterprise Organizations) Set the Group Access configuration for your Collection, including which Groups should be allowed to access this Collection. For more information, see About Groups.
    5. Select Save to finish creating your Collection.

    Create Nested Collections

    Collections be “nested” in order to logically organize them within your Vault. There’s no limit to the depth with which you can nest Collections, but creating too many levels may interfere with your Vault’s interface.


    Nested Collections are designed for in-Vault display purposes only. Nested Collections will not not inherit access or permissions from their “parent” Collection.

    To create a nested Collection, give your new Collection a Name that includes the “parent” Collection followed by a forward slash (/) delimiter, for example Collection 1/Collection 1a.

    If there is no Collection with the corresponding “parent” name or if you don’t have access to the “parent”, the Collection won’t nest and instead it’s title will be displayed in-full.
