Reports & Documents
Why does it say "No Report Available at this Time" when I try to download a report?
This usually indicates that while this type of report has been made available, there is currently insufficient data to generate the report. If this is a newly available report, we recommend that you try again the following day.
I’m a committee member, so why can’t I see any committee reports or documents?
Committee members can have additional access to committee reports. This access must first be linked to your StrataMax Portal Account.
See our article on Request Committee Access. If none of these options work, contact your strata manager to confirm that you are correctly recorded on the strata committee record.
I own multiple properties, but the type of documents I see are different between my properties.
Your strata manager will determine what documents are available on the StrataMax Portal. If you are expecting a document to be available but it isn't, contact your strata manager directly.
