Dossiers in Purple Hub
The Dossiers feature introduces a new type of binder that allows you to collect and display content in your Purple Hub for more efficient content compilation.
Assigning posts to Dossiers allows for immediate visibility within the dossier after publication. Dossiers offer flexibility, supporting all types of posts and allowing for a diverse mix of content within a single Dossier, e.g. to re-assemble previously published content into a new binder of content of particular interest.
This article introduces the concept of Dossiers.

Dossiers in Purple Hub are assembled binders designed to manage and organise content even more effectively. Here's an overview of how Dossiers work:
Dossiers allow you to assemble content by collecting different types of posts within Purple Hub. Whether in draft or published state, you can add a post to a Dossier, and it will automatically appear in the Dossier and be visible to your audience once the post is published (if the Dossier is also published).
Contributions, e.g. articles you add to the Dossier, can be assigned to a Dossier before or after publication of the Dossier, enabling dynamic content management.
A single post can belong to several Dossiers at the same time. This is visible on the article itself in the right-hand sidebar.
Dossiers can contain different types of content, allowing for multiple post formats within the same Dossier. This is particularly useful if you are working with the article post type and other post types, such as bundles or custom post types.
You can create a cover for a Dossier as it supports image inclusion. To do so, you can use the whole range of Gutenberg blocks in Purple Hub.
Besides, Dossiers support categories, tags and metadata customisation via the right sidebar in Purple Hub.
Access levels are derived from individual pieces of content, so if you add an article to the Purple Dossier that is set to e.g. 'Paid', this will determine its visibility within the Dossier so that you can make it visible to paying users only.
In addition, access to Dossiers as a whole can be either 'Paid', 'Entitled' or 'Free Content'. So you have different ways of setting the access level, either on the individual items in the Dossier itself or by setting the whole Dossier to 'Paid', 'Entitled' or 'Free Content'.
If the access level of the post contradicts that of the Dossier, e.g. the post has the access level 'Paid' and the Dossier has the access level 'Free', then the access level of the post is weighted higher. In other words, in this example, the entire Dossier would be freely readable, with the exception of the individual post, which requires a paid subscription to be displayed.
The monetisation of Purple Dossiers does not differ from the procedure on the Purple platform with Purple Hub Issues and Purple Manager Issues: All monetisation options such as vouchers, single purchases, entitlements, subscriptions, etc. are possible.
