Hey everyone. I just wanted to show my Channel Collections and start a topic for everyone else to share how they're using them.
We don't have these showing at all time. Some are contextual based on the current time of year.
My favorite use of Channel Collections is being able to just throw in our "March Madness" collection during the tournament. It makes it so much easier to flip between the games, and takes 1 second to do.
Another thing I love about Channel Collections is being able to just toss in a Holiday based channel depending on the time of the year. Last week I turned on our Halloween virtual channel for the kids. I stuck it in the Movies and Kids collections.
Some of these use Automatic Channels rules and they're listed.
