Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

 

What happens if I don’t verify?

You have 14 days to confirm your email address from the time you receive the initial email.  After this time, your GovTEAMS account will be made inactive. Your account will be on hold, and you won’t be able to access the dashboard or any Office 365 apps until you complete the verification process.

Don't worry, you can reactivate at any time and can pick up right were left off. Your profile information, files, chats, and community memberships are still in the system. To reactivate your account, just follow the process above.

What happens if I’m a Full Access Member and I’ve moved to another department/my email has changed?

If your account is active

You can update your department and email address from the GovTEAMS PROTECTED Dashboard. Please visit How Do I – Update my Account for more information.

If your account is Inactive

Log into your GovTEAMS PROTECTED Dashboard. Select Has your email address changed? to enter your new email address. This will trigger an email to be sent to your new agency.
