How to Get Shared Bookmarks in 5 Minutes (or Less)

Bookmarks, also known as favorites pages, are irreplaceable for many of us. But if you’re part of a team, it's time to level up to shared bookmarks.

Teams tend to access the same links and cloud docs over and over. Shared bookmarks let you send them all at once and update your list of bookmarks anytime. With an app like Workona, you can create separate workspaces for each project or class — which keeps your bookmarks organized no matter how many there are.

The easiest way to share bookmarks: Workona

Can I share bookmarks with Google Chrome Collections?

You may have wondered if Google Chrome Saved Collections could be a solution. While Collections does offer some sharing functionality, we don’t recommend Google Chrome Collections for sharing bookmarks on desktop. Here's why:

  • You can't share webpages on desktop (only images).
  • There's no shortcut to access Collections — you must navigate directly to
