What is Google SSO?
Google SSO is a manual rostering method that allows schools with Google accounts to access our products with their google credentials. This is a great option for schools that don’t want emails sent to students or for students that do not have open inboxes.
To roster with Google SSO, six (6) CSV files will need to be uploaded through a SFTP every time a change is made to the data. It is then edited manually on our end, and then resynced.
To use Google SSO as the authentication method, the school or district administrator should complete the following steps:
- In the Great Minds Digital Products Onboarding Form, select Google SSO as the rostering and login method.
- Complete the Manual Rostering process by using the email addresses associated with your school or district's G Suite for Education domain.
Once the manual rostering process is complete, rostered users can access the platform (found at digital.greatminds.org) with their Google email credentials by selecting the Sign in with Google button on the Great Minds website.
