While the All People and All Organizations directories provide you/your team with access to your shared network, Affinity lists will enable you to track these people and organizations with more specificity based on your various workflows and use cases.
There are 3 types of lists you can create in Affinity:
Some examples of people-type lists:
- Recruiting Pipeline - Track applicants in a recruiting pipeline and see what stage they're in.
- VIPs - Keep a list of all the important people in your network.
- Event Tracking - Track all the people and the events they have attended in the past.
Some examples of organization-type lists:
- Dealflow - Manage your deals and track their progress over time.
- Portfolio Companies - Keep a list of your portfolio companies in one place.
Some examples of opportunity-type lists:
- Limited Partners (LPs) - Track both individual and institutional investors in one place.
- Fundraising - Track different fundraising rounds over time.
Important Notes for Opportunity Lists
