Define fields for multiple collections

Hi there,

setting up Netlify CMS together with Gatsby I came across some use cases where I have a lot of the exact same field configurations for collections. Is there a way to define fields for multiple collections so I don’t have so much duplicates in my config? What I want to achieve is similar to using a folder collection so multiple files have access to the same fields, but with the difference that I want the files to be in separate folders and separately accessible in the CMS.

Appreciating any help!



There’s an open feature request that you can track here:

A couple of approaches and workarounds are discussed there.
