Collections are a great way to share interesting Mentions or Search results with your colleagues or clients who may or may not have Veritone access. You can add generic Search results or Mentions generated by Watchlists in the Discovery App to a Collection and then curate and share this Collection through the Collections App. Within the Collections App, you can complete tasks such as:
- Editing Collection details
- Sharing Collections
- Deleting Collections
- Editing/Verifying Mentions
- Removing Mentions
We will refer both to generic Search results and Mentions generated by Watchlists in the Discovery App as simply mentions through the rest of this article.
