As you would expect, the greatest barrier to using GovTEAMS is not being able to log in. Have you forgotten your username or password? Well you wouldn’t be the first person! Remember, your username is a unique email that is not the same as your work email (it is usually firstname.lastname@example.org). This is so you can take it with you no matter where you work in the APS. If you still can’t remember your username or password, go through the account reactivation process that in available from the login page. Failing that, you can reach out to email@example.com
Accessing GovTEAMS regularly
If it has been longer than 90-days since you last logged into GovTEAMS then there is some bad news – your license will have likely been reassigned to another user. Fortunately, you can regain your access – you just need to contact the licencing area at your home agency and they should be able to help you get back up and running.
