Lightroom: Multiple "Target Collections"

When reviewing a set of images I am often selecting for more than one "end use" and although I can screen images by moving them (via B) to the single target collection, it would be really handy to be able to set up keystrokes to allow me to send images to say Target collection A, Target collection B, etc. (Any decent simple workarounds I am perhaps missing here?)thanks in advance.

Not for target collections, but you could set up a keyword for each collection (up to 9), put them in a keyword set, then you could use the keyword shortcuts.

It's definitely a workaround, so the feature request stands, but hopefully it'll help in the meantime.

You can also try using the color labels (KBSC 6 - 9 ) and setup a smart collection and filter to filter by Label Color

Even if Adobe put "Quick collection" on one key and kept "B" for another collection, this would be a helpful step forward....

It would be nice to have 2 target collections available to assign, it would be excellent to have 10 assignable target collections, it would be phenomenal if LR allowed more shortcut customizations in general.
