Collections: Add Sections (with Descriptions)

July 19, 2019 at 5:47am
I love the flexibility of Collections but just want one feature added; creating sections (ideally with descriptions).
Being able to create a collection for a page and its related components (from anywhere in the project) is freaking powerful.
The only issue I have when bundling a set of Artboards and Symbols (local and library) is that there's no organisation within the collection (aside from the order of the artboards).
If I was able to group artboards based off how it makes sense (for example, screens in one section and components in another) that would make my day.
Great work though!

We've had conversations around this, will share with the team!

I was going to create another Feature Request but it might sound exactly the same at a glance…
I think "Collections" themselves also need the ability to Add Sections or Groups (again, ideally with descriptions). My current project now has seven collections, but there's no organisation between them (I can't even reorder them manually).
Typically I'll use Collections to hold all of the designs required for a section or specific feature. But I may also use it for other uses (i.e. creating a group of artboards to communicate responsive design patterns). I'd want to be able to separate the Collections that are "Section" related and "Documentation" related if that makes sense.

Just echoing this request for our team as well. Many of the devs we work with are used to organizing sections within Zeplin. It would be a great value add for us.

I can't even reorder them manually This is the biggest feature that's missing, and honestly it should be a no brainer with a product like this. Please please put some UX work in your collections!
