We review the Run-1 @8 TeV and preliminary Run-2 @13 TeV measurements of the ttV cross-section with the ATLAS experiment. These processes play a crucial role both as Standard Model precision measurements (unique window into the coupling of the top quark to the Z boson) and to provide more accurate background estimations for many BSM searches (e.g. simplified SUSY models and Dark Matter searches). Rephrased in terms of EFT parameters, Run-1 of the LHC enabled the first direct constraints on a number of relevant operators. Future prospects and expectations from the full Run-2 dataset will be outlined.
