Forgot Password Link Issues

If you click the Forgot Password? link on the login screen you will be asked to enter your email so we can send you a password reset email. If you do so and do not receive an email with the subject "Reset your TeamSnap Password," there could be a few reasons why:

  • The password reset email could be caught in your SPAM/junk filter, please check your SPAM folder.
  • Your browser could be using old cached information and auto-logging you into the wrong account even though you are entering the correct login credentials. Please clear the browser cache and try logging in again.
  • Your account may be under a different email address, or there could be a typo in your username in the system. The password reset email will be sent to the email address used when your TeamSnap account was set up. Please try entering all of your email addresses in the reset password link, and check all email accounts that you may have used.

What happens if my installment payment fails?

If you have installment payments set up, payments should process smoothly on the specified dates. Who doesn't love a set-it-and-forget-it scenario? If you do run into an installment payment failure, read on to see how it can be addressed.

Registration Installments

When a registration installment fails:

  • Payment will be re-attempted three times.
    • If the failure error is returned that the card is being explicitly blocked from transactions, the payment is completely locked and no further attempts will be made for that or any of the following installments for that transaction.
      • Resolution: The cardholder must enter their card information as a new payment method rather than attempting to update the current method, and select to pay the installment then or ask their organization's admin to reset the registration installment dates to reset the payment attempts and future installments.
    • If the installment was declined due to non-sufficient funds 3 times, processing attempts will stop until the next installment date occurs, skipping over the initially failed installment.
      • Resolution: An admin for your organization would need to reset the installment date for that initially failed installment in order to get that payment installment processed.

Invoice Installments

When an invoice installment fails:

  • Payment will fail - currently, there will be no further attempts to process the payment
    • Resolution: Cardholder can update credit card information to trigger the system to re-attempt processing
    • Resolution: Admin can cancel the invoice and create a new one with the remaining invoice balance

Team Schedule is not Updating in Google Calendar

TeamSnap pushes schedule changes within one hour, while Google Calendar typically updates on a 12-hour cycle for subscribed calendars. This means that it is necessary to wait for the next Google Calendar refresh update. Depending on where you fall in the cycle, it can potentially take up to 24 hours to display changes to your subscribed calendar.

Force Google Calendar Refresh

This trick will trip the Google system into thinking that you are requesting a totally new URL and will push it to make a new request rather than syncing to the cached version of your subscribed team schedule.

  1. Unsubscribe from your team schedule
  2. Re-subscribe to your team schedule following the steps in Subscribe to a Team Schedule, but stop at step 8
  3. When pasting the full calendar URL into the 'Other Calendar – Add by URL' field, add the following to the end of the URL immediately following .ics before you hit Enter: ?query=1
    1. Your URL should look similar to this example:
      http://ical-cdn.teamsnap.com/team_schedule/yourspecificteam.ics?query=1
