The Collection Application

The Collection application lets your users and/or visitors 'collect' entries from a SobiPro section. These entries can be collected either only in the general collection list, the so called Favourites, or in specific collection lists.

Each user, even guests have their own collections. Collections can be shared with others by email invitation. Emails can be send to the owners of the collected entries.
