Sending One-to-One and Group Messages


You can send private messages to one or more registered community residents and/or community administrators.

The messages stay within Tribe Home, notifying the recipient via email that they have received new correspondence. You can also add other community members to the thread, creating mini-private forums. 

To get started, click on the Messages icon in your navigation panel


  • New and unread messages have a yellow numbered icon beside the messages as well as the messages tab upon logging into Tribe Home.

Your Inbox, Simplified

Once you have clicked on your messages tab, you'll be taken to your inbox. Your inbox will look like the image below.



How to compose a New Message?

To begin a new chat message simply click on the blue icon New Message button.

To: Enter the person(s) name you would like to message

Message title: The subject of your message

Enter your message here: The body of your message

Attachment: You can attach any relevant file or image if any.

Send it!


Your message text will be delivered to all participants through email and/or iPhone notification (if enabled), allowing them to reply to the thread within the application.


Group Messages 

As an administrator in your community, you have the option to send group messages to registered users within the Tribe Home platform. 

To send a group message go to People & Units 

You can filter and send messages to residents in 2 ways (both are optional):

1.  By Role - Send a message to everyone, council members, owners etc.

2.  By User Tag - Send a message to residents with a particular tag assigned. Press the filter button to select a tag


The individual list can be sorted after clicking the Filter button, as seen in the screenshot below, and the filter can be used.


After setting your filters, click the Message this list button

Enter your subject and message body and then send!

All participants will receive an email notification with your message text and can reply to the thread within the application.

That's it!
