Communitrak organizes users based on role within the community as well as role within individual households. These designations determine what information is available to the user and what actions they can perform within Communitrak.
Users designated as Community Leaders have elevated administrative privileges for the community on Communitrak. These users can take actions that impact the entire community such as:
- changing the name of the community
- inviting new residents and removing previous residents
- adding or removing a payment method for the community
- configuring the HOA checking account for resident payment transfers
- assessing charges to residents as well as voiding or marking charges as paid
- moderating community bulletin boards and calendars
- creating and tracking violations and resident requests
This is the default level of access for the original creator of the community only. Subsequent new users will be designated as Residents.
Users designated as Residents have standard access privileges for the community on Communitrak and can take actions that impact only their household.
This is the default level of access for new users joining an existing community.
Household & Property Level
Head of Household
Community Leaders and Residents designated as a Head of Household have administrative access for their particular household. These users can perform actions such as:
- add and remove members from their household
- add or remove a payment method for the household
- make a payment to the HOA
- reserve an amenity
This is the default level of access for new users of newly created households. Subsequent users of established households are designated as Household Members (see below) by default.
Community Leaders and Residents designated as a Household Member have the lowest level of access for their particular household. These users can perform actions limited by the restrictions placed on them by their Head of Household.
The most common restriction for Household Members involves actions that require payment. For example, Household Members cannot make a payment for the household or reserve an amenity that requires a deposit or reservation fee unless their Head of Household has granted them charging privileges.
This is the default level of access for new users joining an existing household after being invited by the head of their household.
