Add a Document(s) to a Collection


A Collection can contain multiple Documents. Added documents are indexed and stored in a database. When you ask a question about the Document(s), Enterprise h2oGPTe crawls through the indexed Document(s) in the Collection to find relevant content to answer the question while utilizing the H2O LLM to summarize a concise question response.


To learn how to create a Collection, see Create a Collection.
