How to Enable Google Sign-In

To enable Google Sign-In, you must be signed in as the Admin, or as a user with permission to modify AptiBook’s properties.

Google Sign-In is useful when your organization uses Google Apps. AptiBook’s Google Sign-In support allows you to whitelist your organization’s email domain (for example, aptitekk.com) so that only the individuals within your organization can sign in.

Additionally, accounts are created automatically and populated with the name and email on the Google account. This way, you do not have to manually create accounts for each user.

Visit the Properties Page

The first step is to visit the Properties page. This page can be found in the Configuration section, as shown in Figure 1.

Configure Google Sign In

Next, you need to ensure that the Authentication Method is set to Built-In.

Turn on Google Sign-In by checking the box, and then fill out the Allowed Google Sign-In Domain Names.

  • If your organization’s email addresses look like [email protected], then you should enter aptitekk.com into the allowed domains field.
  • If your organization has multiple email address domains, you can enter multiple domains as long as they are comma separated. For example: aptitekk.com, aptitekk.org.

Make sure to save your changes.

Try It Out

Lastly, you can test the Google Sign-In capability by signing out of your current account. Below the original Sign In button, you will find a new button: Sign in with Google (As seen in Figure 3). Click the button and you will be redirected to Google for authentication. Choose your account, and try signing in! If all goes well, you will now be signed in with the email address of your Google account.
