The first step in this process is to go to Config>Student Portal>General Settings.
Once the page loads, you would need to tick Enable Single Sign-On Providers and Save the page which should prompt a Success message.
Once this is in place, you would need to go to Modules>Student Portal>User Accounts.
On this page, you would select one of the desired Users Accounts and press Edit.
Pressing Edit will allow you to enter a Single Sign on Email and Single Sign-On Account Provider for the Student which they can use later on.
Note: This can be an Email Address already stored against the Student on their Record or you may wish to set up and assign new Emails beforehand in a consistent format i.e Student1@testacademy.org.uk.
Once this has been Saved, the Student can now download the Bromcom Student App on their phone and select to log in using the Magic Link.
The Student would then enter the School ID and their Single Sign on Email that you added to their User Account in the previous steps.
Once the School ID and Email have been entered, the App will state that a Magic Link has been sent to their Email Address.
Below is an example of how the Email containing the Link will arrive to the Student, which they would then click to open.
Note: Students MUST open the Magic Link Email from a DEDICATED EMAIL APP on the Mobile Phone/Device that the Student Portal App is also installed on.
Clicking this link will enable Students to use Single Sign for the Student Portal and bypass the need to enter credentials moving forward.
From now on, when Students log in to the Student Portal either via the Web or App Version, the App will take them straight through after they enter their 5 digit code or use Face/Touch Recognition while the Web Version will take them straight through after they select Login with Microsoft/Google Account as seen below;
