Please explain "collections"

I’m trying to understand “collections”. Are collections simply categories of records in the database?

For example, I see user collections, conversations collections, and read status collections in my app (built with the chat template).

I also see that users can have “types”, although I currently only see “user” as the only available type.

Just trying to understand how collections work.

Thanks as always.

Yes that is correct. A collection in your database is data that you collect to dynamically change data on your app screens.

You are also able to have relationships between your collection types. Hope this helps!
