Group your favorite files together using GEH Collections

Filed under: Site News — by at 10:12 am on Friday, December 21, 2007

Here’s a fun new feature that people have been asking for — collections!

Some users wanted a way to tag files as “favorites”, then share that list with others.  This takes that idea but goes one step further.  You can create a favorites list, but you can create other lists as well.  I’ve built a few to get you started.

To add files to a collection, just browse to the very bottom of the page when viewing an individual file.  If you’re logged in, you’ll see a drop-down box to add that file to one of your collections.  That’s it!

It’s a pretty simple feature, but could make for some neat collections.  If you have suggestions on how best to organize the list of collections as it gets bigger, leave a note in the comments below.
