This morning we launched Product Hunt Collections, a simple way to bookmark and curate collections of products. This is by far the most requested feature (here's some evidence!). :)

Great work @shaunmodi and @stephnbain on the UX/design and @andreasklinger and @rstankov on the 1's and 0's.

To create a collection, simply click this icon on the homepage or product pages:



I shared more details in this blog post and we have some nice improvements planned but I'd love to hear everyone's feedback/ideas. Craziest ideas get a digital high five from yours truly. :)

Been waiting for this feature for a long time. I will be creating a ton of collections this weekend :)

@shaunmodi @stephnbain @andreasklinger @rstankov @rrhoover This looks very well rolled out! Great work guys!

@rrhoover Sort of crazy idea...
Clearly there are products that are NOT on PH that other people may be using/like. I think if collections also included those, say, in their own tab of "other non-PH cool stuff I like/use", that would greatly expand the utility of the collections/interactions between members who want to find out more about how someone uses xyz etc.

Awesome! The idea of this was the main reason I became excited about PH. First collection : Apps for Lazy People and Companies http://www.producthunt.com/stonl...

+ Would be great to have sharing links in the collection page.
+ Link updates (with legacy fall back) when changing the collection name. Similar to how Eventbrite handles name / link changes.
+ Upvoting of lists and lists of lists would be nice

@stonlyb ha! Neat idea, Stonly. I'm excited to see the themes people create.

We're adding sharing links shortly and considering upvoting of collections (or something similar). Link updates is a great idea -- adding to trello!

@rrhoover @AnujAdhiya I think collections could look more like sub-reddit's eventually.

@rrhoover 2 more things
a. Upvotes for collections\
b. Commenting/conversations built in at the collection level - much cleaner way for people to give and take feedback that way

@shaunmodi @stephnbain @andreasklinger @rstankov @rrhoover Great Idea. It will make my life easier now :)

@rrhoover @AnujAdhiya @brackin I could see this happening too. My hope though would be that they're easier to navigate than subreddits (much like PH is generally). Subreddits are great, but can quickly become complicated based on how many you follow/add to. That said though, I'm intrigued to see how the Collections feature will evolve.

I created two collections:

* Product Manager toolkit (tools & resources for PMs to kick ass!) http://www.producthunt.com/byosk...

* Products I Wish Were in Canada (Don't forget us in Canada, eh?) http://www.producthunt.com/byosk...

Enjoyed creating them and it was easy to do. Some feedback (echoed previously, I think):

* Being able to add to a collection from search results would be nice
* Some form of (vanity!) metrics on views, upvotes that show you that your collection is being used/appreciated
* Possibly: sorting inside the collection (so you can put certain things at top)
* Possibly: allow people to make suggestions (although this can get irritating quickly)

@byosko Good feedback. Thanks Ben!
Adam Kazwell — Product manager/observer
@byosko great suggestions! and I created a list of PM tools too

@kaz Nice! I added Google Docs from your list. There are a bunch of good ones there too but I don't use them as much. It was interesting that Balsamiq didn't seem to be on PH, I use that regularly for low fidelity mockups/sketches.
