A collection is a set of series grouped together manually. A collection can be promoted by the admin thus making the collection visible to all users. However, just because the collection is visible, does not mean the individual user can view series in it they are not privy to. If a user does not have access to a library or series are outside of their age restriction, those series will not be visible by said user. A collection can contain any series from any library and thus can be cross format. For example, a user may have a collection called "KonoSuba" and it may contain all Konosuba works including light novels, spin offs, manga, TTRPGs, etc.

To create a collection, select the Edit option in the Context Action Menu Kavita%20Context%20Action%20Menu, a collections tag can be created and will be used to create a collection with that name. Other books, comics and manga can have this tag added to become part of the collection. series_metadata_view

Collections can be accessed from the list of libraries, or from a series that is part of a collection. collections_homepage collections_from_series

When selected, all series in the collection will be available. collections_library

To edit a collection, click on the Context Action button and select Edit. edit_collection_button

To "Promote" a collection to other Kavita users' homepages, click on the Promote button. promote_collection

Note: Although a promoted collection can be seen by others, they may not have access to the items due to user access restrictions on what Libraries they can see.
