With SSO your users will be able to login into Legalesign from an external authentication system. This article is about how to login from Google for Business.

You need to register your users within Legalesign first with the same email as their Google email login, and then they will be able to access Legalesign via the SSO you have set up.

Stage 5 is 'Attribute Mapping'. You don't need to use this, just click 'Finish'.

Finally you just need to turn the service ON for your users. The app is now listed in your SAML app and there are clearly marked options to do this. That's it. You can now login to Legalesign using your Google account(s). You can use the start URL as a bookmark shortcut link. Google has various options to configure your dashboard for quick access to your new authentication.
