Groups vs. Collections

#Forms Collections Groups

Updated over a week ago

Groups and Collections serve similar functions in ETO, but there are differences to consider when deciding which will work best for your organization. Both features allow you to group subjects together in order to track data for the grouping as a whole. In general, Groups work with Legacy functionality and Collections with TouchPoints functionality.


  • Legacy, meaning it is still supported but no improvements are being made

  • Only one type of multi-purpose Group

  • Only works with Participants

  • User can record the following for Groups: Efforts, Attendance, Assessments, Add Demo by Group and Multiple Participant


  • Updated feature that will continue to receive updates

  • Interface similar to TouchPoints

  • Able to create different Collection types

  • Works with both Participants and Entities

  • Users record TouchPoints for Collections
