Florida SHOTS: User Confirmation

Florida SHOTS will introduce the User Confirmation process to improve system security through the review of user access. During the organization’s 90-day User Confirmation period, the Local Organization Administrator (LOA) will confirm that users affiliated with the organization should be granted continued access.   Users who are not confirmed at the end of the organization’s 90-day period will no longer have access to Florida SHOTS. Information on how to complete the user confirmation can be found HERE.

Upcoming Local Organization Administrator Update

In our continued efforts to keep Florida SHOTS safe and secure, Florida SHOTS released an update prompting users to review their profile. Users must provide an email address and select the site(s) of the location(s) where they work. Soon, the next phase of this release will be deployed for the Local Organization Administrators (LOA) to confirm those users for their site.  When a LOA logs in to Florida SHOTS, they will be provided with a list of system users under their organization who can access Florida SHOTS. To make sure these system users have continued access to Florida SHOTS, the LOA will need to confirm that that the users are still affiliated with the organization and should be granted continued access.  This confirmation process is expected to be completed annually during the organization’s enrollment date anniversary.

Florida SHOTS User Profile Review

When a user logs in to Florida SHOTS, they will be directed to their User Profile page, where they must provide a valid email address for future communications and indicate one or more Service Sites where they work. Users will be given some grace period to complete the information on the profile page. If the information is not completed after the grace period, the user’s access to Florida SHOTS functionality will be restricted until the missing profile information is provided. See our new short video for step-by-step instructions!
