Allowing constituents to access your schools’ Google Apps for Education account has been simplified with the creation of Blackbaud’s single sign-on (SSO) authentication. Students and Faculty are able to access Google Apps through the Blackbaud portal without the need for a new username and password. Whether your school is using Gmail, Docs, Calendar or more, the SSO will give your users the access that they need.
More than just single sign-on, Blackbaud’s integration also provisions user accounts in Google for you. This feature will allow "ON" to create a new Google Apps account for you, the first time that a Blackbaud user selects the SSO link. Account provisioning saves database managers valuable time by taking away the need to manually create each account in Google.
