GOOGLE APPS INTEGRATION

Google Apps (Google Docs, Calendar, and Gmail) is a collection of collaboration and communication tools hosted by Google. If you have purchased the Google Apps add-on, you will have single-sign on integration to Google Apps for administrators and users of your EasyCampus.


The Gmail Block

  • Make sure you are logged in to your EasyCampus.
  • Locate the Gmail block on the campus landing page
  • The first time you see the block, it will look something like this:

  • Clicking a link within the block will take you to a screen where you agree to the Google terms of service and can continue to your Gmail account. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen, which should look something like this:

  • Fill in the Captcha and then click the I accept. Continue to my account button. If you already have a gmail account, you will be asked which account you want to use.

Note: students can login using the new account and then log back in to gmail using a previous account.

  • The Gmail Inbox will be displayed. Heretofore, this can be accessed through the block on the landing page so users can see their email or compose messages right from EasyCampus.

Google Apps Block

  • Make sure you are logged in to your EasyCampus.
  • Locate the Google Apps block on the campus landing page.

  • From here, you can access Gmail, Calendar, and Google Docs.

Google User Synch

This block allows you to create and manage Google accounts from within your campus. When a user is added to the User Sync, their account is automatically created in Google. If their account is deleted, it will also be deleted in Google.

  • Make sure you are logged in to your EasyCampus.
  • Locate the Google User Sync block on the campus landing page.

  • Click Users being synced to see and or remove user from the sync.
  • Click Add users to sync to add a user to the sync.

Make sure not to add guest users or the superadmin account to the sync! This can break the sync.
