Creating lists

Public and private lists

You can define your lists as public (visible by everyone) or private (visible only to you). Public lists can still only be updated by you, but anyone can comment on them or tag them.

Because lists are identified with the person who has created them, you must be logged in to Trove before you can create or maintain a list.

Creating a new list

To create a new list:

  1. Log in to Trove, if you have not already done so
  2. When you've found the first item you want to add to a list click on the title to go to the item's detail page for that item.
  3. Click on 'Lists' in the 'User activity' box to the right of the record's title
  4. Click 'Add to list'
  5. Fill in the name for your new list and click 'Add to list'

Adding items to a list

Adding items to one of your existing lists is easy.

When you've found an item you wish to add to one of your lists:

  1. Log in to Trove, if you have not already done so
  2. Click 'Lists' in the 'User activity' box to the right of the title
  3. Click 'Add to list'
  4. Click in the checkbox next to the list you want to add the item to
  5. Click 'Add to list'

You can also add any webpage outside Trove to a list.

  1. Click on the 'Lists' tab in your user profile
  2. Click on the list you want to add a webpage to
  3. Click 'Add a web page to list'
  4. Paste the url into the 'Link to item' box
  5. Add a title to 'Title of item'
  6. Add an explanatory note
  7. Click save

Where do I find my lists?

Your lists appear on your user profile, under the “Lists” tab. To see your user profile, login and click on your user name at the top right hand side of the screen. Then click on the 'Lists' tab.

Your private lists can only be seen by you.

To see everyone’s lists, click on the ‘lists‘ link at the top of any screen.

Adding webpages outside of Trove to a list

  1. Click on the ‘Lists’ tab in your user profile.
  2. Click on the list you want to add a webpage to.
  3. Click ‘Add a web page to list’.
  4. Paste the url of the webpage into the ‘Link to item’ box.
  5. Add a title to ‘Title of item’.
  6. Add an explanatory note.
  7. Click ‘save’.

Using tags with lists

Another way to store items for later use is by adding a private tag to each item. Use the name of the list as the tag. You can then retrieve these items by clicking on the tag from the “tags” tab on your user profile page. Access your profile page by logging in and clicking on your user name.
