In the previous post, I have shared with you guys the right method to create an automated collection.
But there is one small disadvantage is that once you have created a collection, that collection will be published immediately by default. But if you do not want to post it as soon as you create it, you are allowed to decide the date and time when your collection will be shown to your customers on your Shopify store.
