1. Will there be a workflow controlling if a user can see "My Collections" in the user view?
Users will only have one Workflow: Author Collection. This one will manage everything for User Side. If it is removed from the role, user will not be able to create Collections.
2. For whom a user can recommend a collection, to the users from the same structure/organization or to the users who can see the same Catalogs?
On the recommend screen, we enter the user name that will be available to recommend a collection. You can recommend to any user of the LMS instance.
3. What does it mean that "admin has to allow publishing the collection", what admin has to do?
As our understanding, the only restriction it is to allow the user to have the user workflow: Author Collection, once the user has it, they can publish or unpublish their Collections to Catalog.

As this is a new functionality new recommendations, sure it will be considered for future. This is a good opportunity to recommend to Product Management through Ideas on Community.
5. Supposing that content of collection is localized, if one peer recommends a collection to another peer who has a different language preferences what will happen? Will the peer with a different language settings be able to see recommended collection?
At the moment, they will see it on the language that it was introduce when the collection was created. Peer will see it under Recommended Collection with the language introduce when it was created.
6. If users don't have a workflow "Author Collection", will they still be able to search collections (created by admins) in the Catalog?
Yes, the only thing it is that they will not be able to Create Collections.

Add Creation and manage Collections in User Side.
8. What’s the option "Admin > Learning > Catalogs > Catalog > User Generated Content > Yes / No" does?
