How to invite others

The process for adding Members and Guests into a community is the same. See instructions below on how to invite others into a community:

Step 1: Login to GovTEAMS

Step 2: Find the community card and click invite others

Step 3: Enter email address

Step 2 - Community card

Under the heading Communities I'm an owner of... choose one of the following:

  • Click on the community card (square tile that lists the community name and how many members are in the community). A pane will appear on the right hand side of the screen. Under the heading Community tools click on the icon with two people that says invite others, or
  • Hover the mouse over the community card and click on the icon with two people that says invite others.

Step 3 - Enter email address

Invite a member or guest to your community by entering their email address in the text box. Multiple email addresses can be entered into the text box if they are separated by a semi-colon e.g. address.1 [at]; address.2 [at]

A new member or guest (that does not have an existing GovTEAMS account) will receive an email invitation with information on how to register and access the community. The community name and description will be included in the email invitation.

Existing GovTEAMS users will receive an email notification advising they have been added to the community and they can begin collaborating.
