I agree especially with number 2. I was a bit surprised when I clicked share on a couple items I added to the collections flyout and pressed share button with only one option. send to a spreadsheet in excel.
I'd like also to have the ability to resize the flyout. I think it is a bit wide and would love to be able to resize the width to whatever I wanted it to be.

Thank you @HotCakeX for jumping into Collections so quickly. We are definitely still working on the feature set. These are great observations and suggestions. I have alerted the Product Manager who owns the Collections feature to this thread, and they will be reading it with great interest, and probably going to want to follow up with questions to dig deeper on some of your comments. Thanks - Elliot

Some things in Collections I've run across.
For shopping, when adding a page to a collection I think this should also bring the price of the item along with the item. The spreadsheet should also include the price. There should also be a way to sort the Collections list, whether that be drag and drop up or down or list price low to high or list alpha.....
Next shopping for truck parts as I fix/repair a truck. Add item to collection, but instead of adding the page header and page number, it adds the "Tab" title and that is all. Adding the shopping cart is useless as there is nothing there and it will not save the items you had in it when you were logged in...
Grocery shopping at walmart, add items to a new collection goes well, except that it does not copy the price correctly and all items are priced at $1.98, which I would love if it were correct LOL....
I also think we should be able to resize the width of the collections column.
Will be doing more and adding more to this as I go..

Results are the collection gets opened in a word doc, with title and links to each item as you can see from Pic above, which I guess is ok, however, if you wanted to combine different collections into one word doc, you have to do it manually as there is not a choice to open/append it to an already existing doc..... I think there should be a choice; Send to previous word collection doc/ yes - no and if yes then open a list of previously created word collection documents. If no, then create a new word doc. And maybe giving a choice to create just a doc or create a table. Now I know this could become very complicated in coding, but Just some thoughts....
Next I'd like to see maybe adding the ability to send to an email.......

i think the Edge collection will have a hard time keeping the track of previously exported documents because if i share a collection to word/excel and then move that file from cloud to my local computer or somewhere else, Edge browser won't know its new location so it won't be able to pull up a list of previously exports documents and use the same document.
Well, not really. If it does a search much like the photos app or the music app does when you start them, they search for newly added photos or music according to which program you open. If it does not find the original file in its last location, then it Searches your entire system, and also gives you the option to add locations (OneDrive, Cloud, etc...) for it to search for items you want it to find then I think it would work well. Though it could become a system resource hog during searches.
But I do also like your idea of "an option to select multiple collections and export them all at once to a single document, whether it's excel or word." In the long run this would probably be the simplest way to go.....

@Dennis5mile, @HotCakeX, @Neda_Meraj, this is great feedback! I walked through much of this on Friday with a PM who works on the Collections feature. We are still in the early days, and we hope to continue to make the feature better and more intuitive. Your feedback will help us greatly in this pursuit. Thank you all very much! - Elliot
