New features round-up: Save, copy, and YouTube search

by Wakelet on

It’s a new year and we’ve launched a whole host of new features. Check out our quick how-to guide to using our save, copy and YouTube search functions

How to copy a collection

Found a collection you love, or one that you’d like to build on? Our new copy feature is her to help! Now, you can copy other peoples’ collections straight into your profile – and it only takes two clicks.

To copy, look out for the Copy button on the collection toolbar. Click it and a pop-up will appear allowing you to change the title (if you’d like), and then select Copy again to save. A green flag will let you know that the collection has been successfully copied and it’ll instantly appear on your home page.

And if you’d like to see whether anyone has copied your collection, simply click on the analytics button on the toolbar (it’s the one that looks like a bar chart!)

Find out how you can use Wakelet

You could use another collection as a template – to create a newsletter, for example – maintaining the structure but replacing the content with your own, or you could build on top of someone else’s travel collection, adding your own things-to-do or reordering items to create your own itinerary.

It’s a great feature to use in the classroom too! Take inspiration from other teachers’ lesson plans or create a collection with a few items to act as a starting point for a class; students can then copy your collection and build on it, adding their own links, notes and images.

How to save a collection

Don’t want to copy a collection but still want to keep track of it? You can now save entire collections, either into your items or straight into your own collections. That’s right; you can now have collections within collections.

Found a great collection of research or a profile featuring every Drake guest verse? It couldn’t be easier to save it. When you’re browsing a collection you’d like to save, simply click on the green ‘Save’ button – you’ll find it on the left-hand side of the toolbar. A notification will then pop-up confirming the collection has been saved. Head over to your items area to find it.You can then view it from there or add it into one of your own collections.

How to search YouTube within Wakelet

Adding videos to your Wakelet collections just got better! With our new YouTube integration, you don’t even need to leave the platform to find the videos you want to add. Simply click on the YouTube icon (It’s the small play button) to get started. A window will then appear allowing you to search directly on YouTube. Enter the name of the video you want to add – or use a keyword to help you find it – and a list of options matching your search will appear. You then just have to select the video you want and click Add.
