Managing collections

Collections are used to store and organise the files and documents that you ingest or upload into ETA. Every file and document must be placed in a collection.

Collections can be searched and used to generate networksA network is a visual summary, generated by ETA, of the information in one or more documents..

While the way in which you organise the documents does not significantly affect your ability to extract and report on the information in them, ETA processes documents into collections. It is therefore recommended that you align your collections with the configurations that you use to process documents. Network creation is easier to configure if collections are aligned with the sets of documents you use to create networks.

Note: You can only view and edit collections if you have sufficient permission to do so.
