Enable Tribe Access

Tribe is an application that can be added to your account in the Intellum learning platform. Contact your Customer Success Manager or an Intellum representative to learn how to add Tribe to your learning environment.

Access a Tribe Organization

With Tribe enabled on your account, each organization in your Intellum account is given a dedicated Tribe URL that defines and manages access for that specific audience.

Unrestricted admin in the platform can find the specific URL for each Tribe Organization in the External Application section of Organization Properties - as seen below:
