Kindle Keyboard collections

OK, I am trying to help someone with a Kindle Keyboard.

This individual wants his Shakespeare's Plays in a collection by that name. Is it possible, using calibre, to simultaneously move multiple documents into a collection (i.e., on the device, from a computer), or must they be moved one by one?

I have searched this forum, and tried a Google search, without success. I tried the calibre user manual, but did not find the answer.

Can anyone answer this question?

Thank you. It is not clear on first inspection which, if any, of these options will do what I want. So, I will experiment.

Using the calibre Collections plugin, you can assign the same collection to mutiple books at once:

1. Select all books to be assigned
2. Right-click -> Edit Metadata -> Edit metadata in bulk
3. Custom metadata -> Kindle Collections. Edit and apply.
