Introducing Collections: Organize your vScope content
Collections are like folders, in which you can categorize content you’ve created. This way, you can much easier overview what’s available in vScope. Create a collection for each organizational unit in your company, collect all security content under ‘Security Reports’, or why not creating customer-specific collections for all your customers’ content?
To have all IT reports, dashboards, and insights easy accessible in vScope is great – but the more you use vScope, the more content you will save. Eventually it will be challenging to overview all the tables and dashboards you’ve created (and got shared with you). With collections, you can categorize and view tables and dashboards any way you want, such as use case.
Here is how it works.
Browse content based on interest
Start exploring bundled content in vScope, Library -> Collections -> Managed by vScope.
Content managed by vScope is automatically created once your vScope is up and running. Based on Collection, you can easily find what’s in your vScope, eg. Changes & Trends, Security, or O365 licenses.
Favorite what’s relevant to you
Whenever you find something that tickles your curiosity, click Star to add it to your favorites. This way, you can surface what’s relevant to you for faster access.
Under “Managed By Organization” you can find collections that your team has created. However, it’s probably empty for you since you have not created any Collection yet…
Create your own Collections
When you are done exploring the Collections managed by vScope, you should create your own. This way, you can start categorizing your content based on your preferences. Such as use case, customer, organizational unit, or project reference. As an administrator, you can manage collections by clicking the “Manage Collections”-button in Library.
Now you can add, rename or delete collections.
Notice 👉 You can only manage user created Collections.
As a Contributor, you can also create Collections when saving content (i.e) a Table or a Dashboard. Created collections will be available to any vScope user (not Viewers) to use for categorizing content.
Add content to Collections
Once your Collection(s) is/are created, users can now start adding content to it. If you have permission to view Settings for a table or dashboard, you can now add it to any Collection that has been created. Easy.
Notice 👉 You cannot add content to Collections managed by vScope
Once saved, head over to your Library to find your Collection (and your table). If you have shared your table or dashboard with your team, they will also be able to view the Collection in their Library.
Good to know 👉 Empty Collections are not shown in
