Organize Favorites Answered

Would love to have a feature added to site to organize favorites.   Granted I only have 65 at this point, can imagine how people find a fav if they have hundreds of favs they need to search thgouh.

Make collections of them, instead of favoriting.

Best woodworking + best electronics + best organization collection (for example) ↓↓

Then put the sorted collections inside of one collection ("TheWaterDog's Favorites") ↓↓

Then favorite that collection! Easy access to all of them!

You should suggest having a "private collection" option to service@instructables.com along with a link to this forum topic so it makes more sense, if that's what you'd like. They might add that feature in the future.

Alternatively, you can keep them as drafts, without publishing them, and accessing them through https://www.instructables.com/member/TheWaterDog/c... (I modified my link to your name, I can't access this page)

OK... so I am organizing by collections. I have organized about 10 of my favs... Now how do I access the collections list? Can't find anything in my profile.
