Accessing Support without a Sales force account?

I am struggling with needing to add access to the account to an additional person.

I read about the ‘teams’ and it looked as if that was the best way to go. I created the team and ‘converted my existing account’ however when I go look at the team page there is nothing about the existing account and it shows no projects or information on the site I have up and running.

When I go to support I get shuttled to a salesforce page that wants a login that is not apparently the same as my DO login.

How can I set up the team to have access to my droplet?

Also. I am seeing way too much of “Sammy ate the page.” It was only amusing the first few times. The tutorial for teams in one of the pages he ate.

Ok, The ‘what are team accounts’ link is broken also.


I’m sorry about the trouble this has caused for you. On the Salesforce part, you should never be seeing that login. If you can help me to re-trace your steps to arrive there, please email me at jdonnell @ I will gladly trade some account credit for your time. When you find yourself at the support portal, clicking “Log in” at the top right should take you through the normal and intended path.

On the topic of the team account, it sounds like you may be viewing the personal account. When you convert to a team all of your items become part of that team, but your personal account remains with those items no longer listed on it. The personal account is the path to the team, as the team owner and login used to access it. If you click the round icon at the top-right of the browser window while logged in at, you can switch between your personal account and team from the drop-down box that appears.
