Manually creating a collection means creating a collection and selecting each item to be included in the collection manually. This gives you extensive control over which items are included in the collection. However, if the collection has too many items, manual handling takes a lot of time. You can also refer to articles on how to create automatic collections. In this article, we will show you how to create manual collections.
