Moving Collections to the Content page to reflect how our customers use them.
After originally putting the Collections feature under Settings, we discovered almost all of our customers use them on a regular basis. So, to make the system more intuitive and easier to use we redeveloped our Content page to include a Collections view for Admins, Editors and Participants.
The Content page update brought a lot of changes to make it easier for Intuto users to find and access their courses and collections. Continue reading to find out more information about the following:
Sorting your Courses and Collections
Next to the search bar you will see two drop down buttons.
The button on the left, currently showing Recent First, will change the order of your courses or collections. You can pick from A-Z, Recent First, Status or Z-A.
The button on the right, currently showing Compact View, will change the size of the courses in the list. Compact view shows more courses on a page, for Admins and Editors this will mean your course options are now in a drop down behind the three dots on the right of the course. Expanded view is similar to the view on the old Content page, with the course options displayed as buttons next to the courses.
Underneath the search bar you will see a few options - these will change how you view the courses.
Collections - View your courses grouped by Collection
Courses - View your courses in one list
Starred - View your starred courses.
You may also see other options here for Invites, Enrollable Courses and Campaigns if applicable to you.
View by Collection
When you are viewing your Content page by Collection, you will see a list of your Collection names on the left hand side of the screen. These will be displayed based on your selections in the dropdown buttons next to the search bar. The Collection at the top of the list will be expanded by default and you can expand or minimise your collections using the black arrow to the left of the Collection name. You can also expand all of your collections by clicking Expand All.
While in this view Admins will be able to see the group (if any) associated with the collection as they will be displayed to the right of the course name. Admins will also see a yellow icon if there is a certificate available on the collection.
You can also Edit, Share and Report on a collection from the content page. Click the three dots to the right of the collection name to access these options.

View by Course
When you are viewing your Content page by Course, you will see a list of all the courses available to you. These will be displayed based on your selections in the dropdown buttons next to the search bar. You will also see how many courses are displayed out of the total number of courses available to you, scroll down the page to load more of your available courses.
While in the expanded view Admins will have access to View, Report, Share and Edit the courses, with all other options hidden behind the three dots to the right of the course name. In the compact view, all options will be hidden behind the three dots.

View by Starred
Participants can "star" courses that they view frequently to make them easier to find. To star a course, click the star outline to the right hand the course name, the star will turn yellow.
These courses will then appear in the Starred view on the content page. You can star a course from both the collection and the course view of the content page.
