Join a Catalytic team

If you are joining a new Catalytic team, a team admin can invite you manually or you can request an invite from that team鈥檚 login page. Once an admin approves your request, you can create a new account. Creating an account requires an invite.

Request an invite to a team

  1. Head to the Catalytic team URL for the new team. Team URL鈥檚 use the format teamname.pushbot.com, where teamname is your team鈥檚 name. Make sure you鈥檙e on the right team!
  2. Select Request an invite

  3. On the next screen, enter the email you would like to use for the account.

If you request an invite, all team admins are alerted of the request by e-mail. From there, they can accept or deny the request. If the request is accepted, you鈥檒l receive an invite to create a new account.

Create a new account from an invite

If you are invited to a team, you鈥檒l receive an email to create an account. Here are a few reminders about the account creation process:

  • The email address must match the email address that received the invite. If you were invited at user@company.com, this address will be pre-populated during sign up and cannot be changed.
  • There will be suggestions to encourage a strong password when you create an account. In general, passwords must be:
    • 8 or more characters
    • Cannot contain the words catalytic or Workflow
    • Cannot contain common password conventions like 123 or abc, or have repeated sequences like 123123123

Once you鈥檝e joined, you鈥檒l jump straight to your dashboard. You can change any profile information from My Account.

Catalytic password requirements

To protect sensitive data, Catalytic requires a very secure password. All Catalytic passwords must meet all following criteria:

  • 8 or more characters
  • Cannot contain your name, username, user ID, team name, email or the words Catalytic, Pushbot, admin, owner, or public.
  • Cannot contain common password conventions such as 123, abc, or have repeated sequences like 123123123, 202020
  • Cannot be in the list of top 100 most common passwords, or similar to a common password
  • Cannot include straight rows of keys like asdfg or yuiop or dates in easy to guess formats like 123053

How to create a strong password

If you find your commonly used passwords don鈥檛 meet the security requirements, here are some tips:

  • Review the general guidelines above. In some cases, a password just needs a small change like an extra character, or should exclude a specific word. Isolate what the possible issue with your password may be.
  • If you鈥檝e tried multiple permutations of a password you prefer, try creating a new password.
    • For example, if you tried password as a password but it was not secure enough, permutations like password123 or Password0 will also fail since password is already too common.
  • Try the multiple word phrase method: experts have shown that a string of 3+ uncommon words is virtually uncrackable. For example, 3 or 4 word phrases like Deliveryman-Quartet-Convention or Mango-Bran-Clothing-Warehouse are very strong passwords and easy to remember.
