Organization SignUP – Quick Start, the basics
Get your Organization setup on TrailHUB

High Level Steps:
*Chrome web browser on a Desktop or Laptop suggested for Initial Admin Setup*
- Add Details users need – Address, Links for Website, Buy Passes/Memberships, Lodging, Food, Social Media, etc…
- Add Trails – start with most popular Activity – Trail Name, Length, Difficulty

First, basic terminology we use
- DASHBOARD – initial 1x setup type tasks for Org Administrators
- MANAGE TRAILS – daily/frequent updates, trail status, surface condition & information posts/events/keep users in-the-know.
- TRUSTEES – your most trusted team of volunteers or operations & marketing staff who have authority to Manage Trails. (Share the love, more trustees = accurate, reliable content for users)
- MEMBERS – these are the cool people who LOVE your Trails and look forward to receiving your updates.
- Encourage Members to “Follow you ♥” on TrailHUB, greatly enhancing how you reach your target audience via App push notifications, Email or SMS Text
- Members can be invited to become a Trustee in the Org Admin Dashboard
Lets get started!
1. SIGNUP – Create your ORG ADMIN ACCOUNT
