Shelves are a great way to organize a collection of binders, whether they are yours or someone else’s. But how do you organize a collection of shelves? In a binder of course!
We just made it easier than ever to insert yours or someone else’s shelf in your binder. You will find the option in the “+ Content” menu under “Binder.”

You have always been able to embed binders inside binders, but now it is even easier than before. Just click on the “+ Content” button in the editor. You can either select one of your binders or insert a link from someone else’s binder. The binder will show up in “Presentation” mode so that it minimizes the space that is taken up at the top of the binder.
There are a lot of reasons why you might want to insert a binder in a binder including:
- An infinite number of tab levels
- Mixing private content with public content to control viewing access
- Breaking your content into smaller groups
- Speeding up the loading of a very large binder
- Referencing someone else’s collection of content on your subject
Please stay tuned for our next feature: Insert a shelf in a binder.

You have probably noticed that you can sort your custom shelves by any of the following:
- Most recent (most recently edited)
- Most Viewed
- Recent Comments
- Most Useful
We recently added “Newest” to this list so that you can easily find the newest binders on your shelf. Thank you to Peggy George for requesting this feature!
But did you know that you can also send a link to someone with a specific sort order? Here is how you do that:
- First, copy the link to the binder, in our example: http://www.livebinders.com/shelf/view/548
- Second, add “?sort=new” to the end of that link so the link is now http://www.livebinders.com/shelf/view/548?sort=new and when clicked, it will now show that shelf sorted by the newest binders
Here are the different kinds of sorts that you can add to your link:
- Most recent – “?sort=recent”
- Alphabetical – “?sort=alphabetical”
- Most Viewed – “?sort=viewed”
- Categories – “?sort=category”
- Recent Comments – “?sort=comments”
- Most Useful – “?sort=useful”
- Newest – “?sort=new”
You can also do this for your embedded shelves, but instead of adding a “?” and the kind of sort, you add an “&” and the sort. You do this at the end of the link in the embed code, pictured below:
Here are the different kinds of sorts that you can add to your embed code:
- Most recent – “&sort=recent”
- Alphabetical – “&sort=alphabetical”
- Most Viewed – “&sort=viewed”
- Categories – “&sort=category”
- Recent Comments – “&sort=comments”
- Most Useful – “&sort=useful”
- Newest – “&sort=new”

We have had several requests to bring back rounded tabs, so we have added that feature for our subscribers. You can have all rounded tabs in your binder or just one or two rows. This is a good way to differentiate tabs from sub tabs or base tabs when you are using multiple tab colors.

Have you ever wanted to gather all the information from a conference and have it organized to share with others as soon as the conference is over? LiveBinders Quick is a new app designed just for that. LiveBinders Quick lets you snap a QR code, write a note and instantly add it to your conference binder. After, you can simply send the binder link out to others so that they will have access to the same great materials.
Conference organizers, here is a way to go paperless at your conference for free! There is no cost to you or your participants. We would love to talk to you! All you would do is ask presenters to put a QR code on the door with their presentations or handouts, you can quickly and easily be running a paperless conference. No matter what your presenters are using to present their material, LiveBinders, Prezi, Google Slides, or any other application, it is simple for them to obtain a QR code linking the viewer directly to their material. You can ask your vendors on the floor to post a QR code with handouts as well. Your attendees will be thrilled that you made gathering materials so easy for them.
The LiveBinders Quick Conference App was requested by a LiveBinders customer who got frustrated walking around the conference floor gathering handouts that he had to organize and summarize for his colleagues when he got home. He longed to go paperless and just snap vendor information and presentations into his cell phone. Now with LiveBinders Quick, he scans QR Codes and jots a quick note to his colleagues about the link. At the end of the conference he sends his colleagues a professional-looking online binder of materials and notes even before getting on the airplane!
To learn how to get started review our LiveBinders Quick Conference App Binder.
Here are the Apps:

We have just added auto embed for Pinterest boards and Vimeo videos. Unfortunately Pinterest profiles will still need to be embedded with the embed code. But for boards you can either copy/paste the link into your binder or use “LiveBinder It.”
A shout out and thank you to Joy Kirr (@joykirr) who requested auto embed for Pinterest boards.
