Active Adult Community Residents’ Introduction to LifestyleLink

LifestyleLink is a one-stop tool for active adult community residents to keep up with everything happening in their neighborhoods. From special interest groups and clubs to daily activities, clubs, and online discussion groups. Find out how LifestyleLink can help you get the most out of your active adult community.

Introduction to the Residents Dashboard

When you log in to LifestyleLink you will see your home page, called the Dashboard. Here you will see important news about your neighborhood, upcoming community events, and a feed of recent forum posts from the discussion groups you have chosen to follow.

You can find your way around the Dashboard using the links at the top of the page, or in the Lifestyle menu on the left-hand side of the page.

Finding and Joining Groups through LifestyleLink

If you click on “Groups” in your Lifestyle menu, it will take you to a full list of groups and clubs available in your community. Just scroll to find what interests you or use the Search by name feature to find a particular group using any part of its name. Click on any group name to see more information about the group, including club news and upcoming group events.

You can also click Join to become part of the group. Depending on the membership settings, any member may be able to join at any time, or your request may be sent to a group manager for approval.

You can even create your own group by clicking “Create New Group on top right of the list. Check out our Quick Tip video for more information about creating a group or club.

My Groups Gives You Access to All Your Group’s Online Resources in One Place

If you want to see only the groups you belong to, simply click on the “My Groups” link in the Lifestyle panel on the left side of your screen. This will bring up a list of all the groups you have joined. If you are a group manager, that will be noted in the bottom right of that group entry in the list. Click on the group name to be taken to the group homepage. Here you can find group-specific:

  • News
  • Events
  • Calendar
  • Documents
  • Photos
  • Discussion
  • Member rosters

You can navigate to any of these sections using the Group menu.

Finding and Reserving Facility Amenities with the Lifestyle Menu

The Amenities menu gives you a list of locations and rooms in your community. You can reserve an amenity for a private event by clicking on the “Reserve an Amenity” button at the top of the page. Simply fill out the information form and your event request will be sent to a community administrator for approval. You can learn more about creating private events on our blog, or by watching this Quick Tips video.

Use the Schedule Link to Learn What is Happening in Your Community

The Schedule page provides a printer-friendly list of all the events happening in your community, complete with:

  • Date

You can also find events using the Calendar link at the top of the page. This will take you to the Community Calendar where you can sort events by category or location.

My Orders Lets You Track Amenity Reservation Fees and Event Tickets

By clicking on the My Orders link in the Lifestyle menu, you can see a list of all your current and past ticket purchases or event reservations. The event name and date are listed along with any cost, and an order number in case you need to reference it when talking with a community administrator.

LifestyleLink Dashboard Helps You Stay Connected to Your Community Managers

Last on the list in your Lifestyle menu is the Contact Us link. This page lists community staff and contact information, and provides a “Send Us a Message” form so you can easily get in touch with community staff about issues.
