When clicking Add data button in a project, users should be able to choose what data they want from a collection to create a new collection in their project. Say if there's 10 files in a collection and you only want to add 5 of those, you should be able to regex in that pop-up box and only grab the files you need, instead of copying the entire collection, going into that collection and regexing the files you want to create a new collection.

  • Subject changed from Add data feature for adding new collections to [Workbench] "Add data from another project" modal supports regex filtering
  • Category set to Workbench


If Workbench had other rich collection editing features, would that satisfy you as well? For example, what if, after you copy a collection, there were a quick and easy "delete files from collection" button that edited the collection in place like file upload does?

Brett, yeah that would be great, deleting files and renaming files in a collection within workbench would be awesome. I think #3821 is what I'm looking for.
