- Core Federal Agency Users: Federal agency users (BIA, FS, NPS, FWS, BLM) requesting FTEM access for the first time are auto-granted Agency Viewer access to the agency affiliated with their email domain.
- Non-Federal Users: Requests from Users outside of the core federal agencies are reviewed by FTEM administrators prior to be being granted FTEM Viewer access.
Important! Edit access must be requested by a user and approved by an Agency Administrator.
All FTEM accounts are assigned the Viewer role by default. If you would like to request a different FTEM role, do so via your FTEM profile in the top right of the page by following these steps:
Go to your FTEM Profile page by either by clicking on your username in the top right of any FTEM screen and selecting Profile from the drop-down list, or by using the Account Management button on the FTEM landing page.
- Select the Roles tab, this displays your current role, as well as an option to request additional roles.
Click the Add FTEM Roles button, this opens the FTEM Roles table.
The FTEM Roles table displays options to update your role for various agencies. Select the role you want.
Important! Viewers can only request the role of "Editor." Editors can then request the role of "Administrator."
- Provide a brief justification for your role using the justification text box. One sentence should suffice.
Click the Request FTEM Roles button.
A notice appears confirming you have successfully requested an update to your FTEM role. Your request is forwarded to an FTEM Administrator to review. Upon approval, you receive confirmation of the new role via the email linked to your account. The next time you access FTEM you will have your new role.

The table below briefly outlines the difference between FTEM Roles.
Note: FTEM Viewer vs. Agency Viewer? "Agency Viewer" roles are assigned to all account requests that come from personnel affiliated with agencies contributing data to FTEM (USFS, NPS, BLM, USFWS, and BIA). This status allows them to see FTEM Treatment status. "FTEM Viewer" encompasses all other users, such as collaborators whose organizations do not conduct FTEM monitoring.
