Google Apps

It’s easy to get your ProdPad account hooked up with the Google Apps integration, whether you already have an existing account that you want to use Google Apps SSO with, or whether you’re just getting started with a new account.

The Google Apps integration will allow you to use SSO and GoogleDrive (Google Docs) so you can easily add files and designs to your ideas.

Hook up Google Apps to your Existing Account

To set up Google Apps SSO to your account, you can do it from one of four ways:

  1. Register a new account using 'Sign up with Google Apps' on the sign up page.
  2. Register an existing account by signing in to your ProdPad account and authenticating Google Apps. ProdPad will then check to match your email address against what was returned by Google and if that matches, will add the Google domain to the account a user is logged into.

    1. To do this, go to Account Settings > Authentication > Add Authentication Type. 

Removing the Google Apps SSO Integration

To remove the Google Apps SSO integration, the account admin can navigate to Account Settings > Authentication and click on 'remove' on any of the added domains.

Why does Google Apps request read/write permissions?

In order to allow you and your team to log in, as well as import documents from Google Drive, we ask for read/write permissions. We don't actually modify anything, but report live on any changes you might make.
