Accept Your Invitation to Join a Team

Team invitations are handled differently for users that have an existing TeamSnap account and those that are brand new to TeamSnap:

Existing Users: Users with existing TeamSnap accounts that are sent new invitations to join a team will be automagically added to the new team, as long as the email used for the invite is associated to the user's existing TeamSnap account. These users will receive an email notification about being added to the new team, which they should see in their teams list the next time they log in. Not seeing the new team? Learn more here: Team Missing From Account.

New Users: Once your team admin has invited you, you'll receive an email with an invitation link to create a TeamSnap account and access your team site.  If haven’t received an invitation, you'll want to contact your team manager/coach and ask that they double check that your invitation was sent out. 

Do you use multiple email addresses? Once a team admin sends out invitations you will receive email invitations to all email addresses listed on your roster profile. If you are already a TeamSnap user, you will have your invite auto-accepted by the system if any of your roster profile emails are attached to an existing active TeamSnap account. 

If you'd like to accept invitations sent to other email addresses under an existing account, click Switch Account during the acceptance process to log into your TeamSnap account and have access to the new team added to that account. Otherwise, if you continue and accept an invitation sent to another email address without switching to your existing account, you will create a new TeamSnap account that will not be associated to the existing one.

Common Questions

What's the difference between my account email and my roster email?

The account email is part of your credentials to log into your TeamSnap account. This is your username, or user ID. It is not automatically displayed in roster lists, only under your Account Settings. TeamSnap uses the account email to send you important TeamSnap news, or when there are billing issues for your account. You can update your account info if needed.

Roster emails are listed within each member profile on a team's roster list. Your roster email(s) is where you will receive communication from your TeamSnap team if you have the Receive Emails box checked in your roster profile. This is also known as your contact email address.

If multiple email addresses are listed under a member's profile, emails delivered from Person 1 will show as sent from the member's name on the roster. All subsequent contacts added will show emails delivered from the name on the account email for that email address, not the member's name on the team's roster. If needed, follow the instructions above to change the account name, or update your roster profile information if needed.

Can I be a member of more than one team?

Heck yes, this is TeamSnap! You can join as many teams as you'd like! Learn more about adding another team to your existing account.

If you are a team owner wanting to create more teams under your account, that's as easy as eating apple pie. Pie that is delivered to you on a plate so you don't have to actually know or be good at baking. Learn how to create a new team if you are a team owner.

How do I add a family member or contact to my roster profile?

Easy peasy! You can add family or other contacts under the main roster profile for the team so that they can receive team communications, and can invite them to join the team so they can access and view team info like schedule, availability, etc. Check out our help article to learn how: Add Family or Contacts to a Profile
