CULytics supports different scopes of interaction on its hosted communities. All communities on CULytics fall into one of the below three categories.
Open for All - There are some communities that are open for all internet users. A good example is the Home CULytics community and Solution Gallery, where vendor offerings are listed. Both these communities are open for everyone to read and comment on.
Open Only for Credit Union Employees - Then, there are some communities that are open only for Credit Union Employees. Vendors and non-Credit Union employee members cannot access them. Credit Union employees can post on blogs and participate in discussions, knowing that all content is shared only with their peers. The link to these communities are available in the footer; you can also find it here.
Open by Invitation - In addition, CULytics supports communities that are open to members only by invitation. Only invited members of these communities can consume or post content. These communities are created to allow a close knit group to work in isolation. This category also consists of customer communities created by vendors. Vendors use these user communities to share best practices, successes, and learnings with their customers. Vendors fully administer these user communities, including who is allowed to be a member. The link to these communities is provided only to invited members.
The above diagram is an overview of community organization on CULytics. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions! We hope this helps provide a better understanding of the tools and capabilities that CULytics provides to help Credit Unions and vendors succeed.
