A TiM user account can be deactivated if a user no longer wants their account to be accessible, or if a legal and/or security need arises.
Accounts can always be reactivated if needed.

What happens when a TiM Account is deactivated?
When a TiM Account is deactivated, it means that no one can log in to that account, even if they have the correct log in credentials.
For legal reasons, all of the information within the account is stored, including all Startwork documents. Users with deactivated accounts will also continue to receive certain types of TiM notifications such as Invites to new Projects.
Who has the ability to deactivate and reactivate a TiM Account?
A user has the ability to deactivate and reactivate their TiM account independently (see instructions below).
The TiM Support team also has the ability to deactivate and reactivate TiM Accounts, with authorization from account owners or if a legal and/or security need arises.
How To Deactivate Your TiM Account
- Log in to your TiM Account.
- Click the gear icon at the top right corner of your screen.
