GovTEAMS guided by APSC tips

Start the conversation

The Australian Public Service Commission (APSC) has issued three tips to help APS members signed up for GovTEAMS get the most from the whole-of-Government collaboration platform.

In its advice, the Commission discusses logging in, accessing the resource regularly and what to do as a member.

“As you would expect, the greatest barrier to using GovTEAMS is not being able to log in,” the APSC said.

“Remember, your username is a unique email that is not the same as your work email (it is usually [email protected]),” it said.

“This is so you can take it with you no matter where you work in the APS.”

The APSC said if people still could not remember their username or password, they should go through the account reactivation process that was available from the login page.

The Commission said for those who had not logged into GovTEAMS for over 90-days, it was likely that their licence had been reassigned to another user.

“Fortunately, you can regain your access – you just need to contact the licensing area at your home agency and they should be able to help you get back up and running,” it said.

The APSC said APS members could use the platform to post a question to their colleagues; promote job vacancies; share documents; and like posts.

“Are you about to develop a workforce plan for your agency? Why don’t you see if anyone else has one they can share so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel,” it said.
