Collections are fundamental to Attio - a collection is a central space for your workflow or team project.


A collection is where you add, organize and track your entries in Attio - entries are references to your records (people or companies). You can create collections for all of your workflows and projects.

Once you have some entries in your collection, you can add attributes such as labels, stages, and other fields to organize your data. Visualize your network with different view types like kanban and table views, and use filters to sort and refine your collection. Collections can be shared with your team, or kept private. Learn more about building a collection in Attio.
