But wait, oh no! You can’t get in. We know that can be a frustrating feeling, so here are some of the most commonly asked questions about accessing your SureTrack Community that will help you get the auto repair information you need faster.

How do I get to the SureTrack Community in ProDemand or ShopKey Pro?

Click on the main menu at the left side of ProDemand or ShopKey Pro and click on the SureTrack Community button. If you are logged in to ProDemand or ShopKey Pro as with a shop account you will be in read-only mode in the community where you will be able to see the latest activity and leaderboard. Once you perform an action that is limited to a community user, you will be asked to log in to an individual account or create one.

At this time, the SureTrack community is not available in the mobile version of ProDemand or ShopKey Pro. See the next section for instructions on how to access it on a phone or tablet.

What’s the difference between a Shop account and a Community User account?

You can log into ProDemand or ShopKey Pro with either a Shop account or a Community User account (Individual account). The Shop account will have access to change settings and manage users and read content in the SureTrack Community. A Community User account will have access to their profile settings and will be able to manage their content and participate in the Community fully. Both types of accounts will have full access to the data available in the subscription.

Either the shop name or the community username will be displayed on the right side of the product near the top. Clicking the name gives you options available to manage according to the type of user.

What is an Authorization Key and do I need one?

When you buy a new qualifying Snap-on scan tool, your Franchisee will give you an invoice which includes your Authorization Key. Also when you purchase a software update for your qualifying scan tool, the invoice will include the Authorization Key. The Authorization Key is a 12 digit alpha-numeric code that looks similar to: 123456789-US. On the invoice, it will be listed as the SureTrack Serial Number. Enter the key in the “Authorization Key” field in the Community Profile page, or as requested while signing up for a new account.
