Single Signon with Google Apps & Gmail

  

Let’s begin by defining single sign on and why it’s something worth knowing about. Single sign on simplifies the experience of moving between websites and apps by allowing an automatic login that uses one set of credentials. It may seem like a small thing, but it’s kind of a big deal when you don’t have to remember multiple passwords or look for that secret Post It note where you scribbled down your user Id.

BigTime supports single sign on with Google apps and Gmail. We believe that our users should be able to connect with us using  the apps they already know and love. Why? It’s less disruptive. It’s a more seamless experience. And, quite simply, it’s just a more productive way to work.

Takeaways

Your BigTime and Google email addresses should match. BigTime will assume that your BigTime email address and your Google email address are the same.  If they aren’t, BigTime will send a confirmation to your Google email.  You’ll need to click the link in that email message to complete the Open ID connection.

If you are already a BigTime user, you can link your BigTime account to your Google Apps login. Once the accounts are linked, you are automatically logged into BigTime whenever you are logged into Google.
