Your IT team can easily set up Single Sign-On (SSO) within Blissbook. To start, you'll need to make them a Teammate (Admin) in your organization. Check out the "Add a Teammate" section of this help article (FYI, we recommend the Tech role for these users).

Direct them to the Single Sign-On settings page ( OR, when signed in to Blissbook, click SETTINGS in the side nav. You will start off in the Account Settings tab and once there, click the Enable SSO button within the Authentication section and choose your SSO provider.

Blissbook currently supports Okta, G Suite (Google), Azure/Office365, Okta, generic SAML 2.0, and Active Directory (AD FS). If you're using another SSO provider that you want us to support, contact us and we'll get it set up.

Setting up Azure/Office365 or Google SSO is easy. Just choose one and then click the install button. Done!

Setting up Active Directory, Okta, or others takes a little bit more effort. There are instructions within Blissbook to walk your IT team through the set up - just click the appropriate button within the Single Sign-On drawer to see those details.

If you'd like to send the instructions to your IT team outside of Blissbook, you can do that too.

Automated/Just-in-Time User Provisioning

Blissbook does not do just-in-time or automated user provisioning upon login. You will need to sync an employee list with Blissbook ahead of time.

One of the main risk mitigation benefits of Blissbook is the ability to track who has NOT logged in or who has NOT signed their acknowledgement. This is who your biggest risks are. Not only do we report on those people in the doc center, but you can then send them reminders or Blissbook can automatically send reminders on your behalf, so you can eliminate those gaps. Blissbook can't do these things if we don't know who all of the employees are who need to access the handbook.
