The collections always contain the same products unless you add or remove them with automated collections, you can define conditions and the system will automatically include matching products as well as any new merchandise that meets the conditions. Once you save a manual collection or an automated one, this cannot be edited. If you decide to switch from one method to the other, you'll need to recreate the collection from scratch. Consider how you will organize your navigation when mapping collections, you can also request assistance from any of our Fiverr sellers.
