Collection: Best Practices


Define clear goals

  • It will be helpful to consider the purpose of your collection and focus on a specific story or theme.

Record an introduction

  • Your collection's title and description provide its foundation. In addition, we recommend that you take advantage of the "Intro" feature, which allows you to record a brief voice note or video to more fully set the context of your collection.

Collect content with context

  • Well-constructed content is more than an image or document. Adding thoughtful context (i.e. title, location, description, voice notes, tags) improves to the quality of your content. Quality > Quantity.
  • It's special when you see a variety of content types come together (e.g. a voice memo with a document or image).

Create milestones for the timeline

  • We recommend 6-10 milestones as a starting point. Milestones with at least 3-5 pieces of content are typically more engaging.
