Ryan, I think this may be a current limitation to the application for which you may want to file a request in JIRA (see https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/19202060/How+to+Request+a+New+Feature for the process) , but perhaps others who are using this feature with their own collections have suggestions.

Subject: Misleading top container title with multiple collections

I am upgrading to the new ASpace and just now using top containers. I have some boxes that have items from multiple small collections. When I try to assign the top container to the items from both collections, the title of the container only lists the first collection before the identifier of the container. Is there a way to remove the collection identifier from a top container with multiple collections? It is very misleading to only see one collection, when there are several in a box. I've attached a screenshot to hopefully show what I am talking about.
