Modern.Gov Committee Management System - Restricted Content

Members are reminded that the app for the Modern.Gov committee management system on Council-issued iPads needs to be enabled in order to access ‘restricted’ agenda etc. content. A system-generated activation link for the restricted app has previously been sent to all members that have received an iPad, which should be opened on the mobile device. The activation link has been sent to members’ new ‘cllr.***@eppingforestdc.gov.uk’ email address and the app has already been downloaded to each device.

 

The relevant login and password details for Modern.Gov will need to be entered as part of the registration process for access to the restricted element of the app on the mobile device. If any member has forgotten their login/password details for Modern.Gov, or requires the reissue of the activation link, please advise democraticservices@eppingforestdc.gov.uk in order that these can be reset. Members should be aware that the activation link for the restricted element of the app is device-specific and cannot be used with any other mobile device.
