How to Create Collections on TikTok

TikTok recently announced that they added a feature that allows users to categorize their favorites into “collections.” It’s essentially an easier way to see what you’ve favorited, without having to go through every single video. 

We’ll explain all you need to know in this blog post about collections on TikTok and how they work.


TikTok FYP

If you frequently scroll on TikTok, then you probably find videos that you want to save for later. Whether it’s a new recipe or a cool vacation spot, hitting the favorite button was as easy as anything.

TikTok has now made it even easier for users to control and organize what you save so you can go back and find them later. Instead of having them all in one place under your favorites, TikTok created the collections feature so you can organize them for easier access. 

So, next time you find that recipe or vacation spot, instead of grouping them together in your favorites, create collections for them. It’s as easy as labeling one as “Recipes” and the other as “Vacations,” cool right? 


If TikTok collections sound like something you’re interested in, then continue reading where we’ll explain to you how you can create your own.


How to Create Collections on TikTok

After you save a couple of videos to your favorites, you can create collections out of them. To create one, follow these steps:

  • Open the TikTok app.
  • Click on your profile in the bottom right-hand corner. 
  • Click on the favorites tab. 
  • Tap “Create new collection.”
  • Give your collection a name. 
  • Select some videos you want to be added and click “Add videos.”











Another way to add videos to your favorites is to click on the video, and click the favorites button on the right-hand side of the screen. A tab on the bottom will appear, so click “Manage” and select the collection you want to add the video into. 


How to Organize TikTok Collections

By using the above steps you can begin organizing your collections. Go through your liked videos and find some that you want to add to a collection. 

If you have a bunch that has to do with the outdoors, then make a collection called “Outdoors” and add all of those videos. Again, all you have to do to add videos to the collection is just click on the video, then click on the favorites button. Press “Manage” then select the collection you want to add the video into. 

Repeat this process as many times as you want to until you have your videos organized how you want them. 

Keep in mind that only you can see, edit, and add videos into collections, so no worries there. 


How to Edit TikTok Collections

If you want to edit your collection, just follow these steps:

  • Open the TikTok app.
  • Click on your profile in the bottom right-hand corner. 
  • Tap the favorites tab, then press “collections.”
  • Find the collection you want to edit and click on it. 
  • Click on the three dots in the top right-hand corner. 
  • Press “Change collection name” to rename your collection or “Delete collection” to get rid of the collection. 
  • If you want to edit the videos that are in that collection, then press “Manage videos” under the collection name at the top on the left-hand side. 
  • Once you select your videos, you can then move them to a different collection or remove them from the collection. 










Why Don’t I have TikTok Collections?

For a long time, only certain users had access to the TikTok collections feature. If you’re one of those users that still don’t have access to it, then try updating your app if you haven’t already. 

If even after you update your app and you still don’t have access to collections, then chances are it isn’t available in your area. You’ll just have to wait until TikTok decides to grace your area’s presence with this awesome feature. 



If you love to be organized in all aspects of your life, then using TikTok’s collection feature is most definitely for you. So, if you haven’t already, make a bunch of collections that your saved videos fit into so you can find them easier. 

Whether you have 2 collections or 20, it never hurts to be organized. You’ll thank yourself later when you find yourself at the grocery store forgetting what that one ingredient in the recipe was that you saw in that TikTok video earlier!
