  4. From the edit form, you can perform a number of actions:
    • Rename the collection by modifying the Name field.
    • Modify the Share Collection setting by expanding the menu and selecting:
      • None—this collection is shared with no other users.
      • All Users—this collection is shared with all users on the site.
      • Some Users—this collection can be shared with selected users. Clicking this option provides the option to select the specific users with whom to share this collection.
    • Delete the collection from the site by clicking Delete Permanently.
      There is no confirmation pop-up when you click Delete Permanently. As soon as you click this button, the collection is deleted from the site. Reload the Collection page to see the updated list of collections.
  5. Click Save.

    If you chose to delete the collection, there is no need to click Save. The edit form closes automatically after deletion.
