Creating a Data Collection

You can create a new Data Collection and link it to your other Wdesk documents.

Creating a New Document

In Home, choose Data Collection under the Create button. This will open the Create New Document wizard.

The wizard will prompt you to enter a name, select the Data Collection document type, set Table Defaults, and select an existing project and folder. In the final step, you’ll review the document details, then click Create Document. This will create an empty collection, with a blank Master Template in the Document Outline panel to the left.


To use information gathered through your collection in another document, you can take advantage of Wdesk’s ability to link data. Simply copy the information you’d like to reuse, thus creating a source, then paste it into the desired location in another document, creating the destination link.
