Introduction#

The Google SSO (Single Sign-On) integration aims to increase user security on the platform. With this SSO feature, managers will have full control of who should have access to the Conviso Platform. The impact will be positive for your company's support teams tasks, reducing common “forgot my password” calls by employees, customers and suppliers, allowing the process to flow more quickly.

Benefits:

  • Authenticate using corporate email;

  • User control.
