Once Communitrak has been configured to match the style, brand, and needs of your community, you’re ready to begin inviting residents. We encourage you to complete the steps in our article Getting Started for Leaders before inviting residents.
In order to maintain a secure and trusted online environment for your community, Communitrak is invite-only. To join Communitrak, each household requires an invitation containing a unique access code, which must be sent by a Community Leader. Note that only one invitation is necessary per household, as once a household has joined, the Head of Household may then invite their other household members.
Invitations to join Communitrak can be sent via email, text message, or printed access pass. We’ll go over each of these methods below.
