For account administrators
One of the biggest friction points for using any online software is creating and remembering another password. Passwords are just enough of a nuisance to put a damper on signing up, taking, or checking in on a course — or just putting it off for later.
Now, you can allow any member of your account to sign in with their existing Google or Apple account in just one tap! Not only does this save time, but it also comes with all the security protections Google and Apple provide without having to invent or re-use yet another password.
If your learners prefer not to use Apple or Google to sign in, they can still sign in with an email and password or enter just their email address to receive a secure "magic" sign-in link that signs them in with a single tap or click.
How to set up Google and Apple Logins
As an Administrator, you can opt into Google and/or Apple logins under Account Settings > Configure Features.
Special Note: if members choose to Sign In with Apple, they have an option to "Hide my email." If they choose this option, Apple generates a random email address where they'll still be able to receive messages sent from within your Pathwright account. However, they will not receive emails at this address that are sent from other sources (for instance, a separate newsletter sent from an email service like Mailchimp).
How instant sign-up and sign-in work
Your sign-in page is automatically branded with your account logo and brand color, which you can edit under Account Settings>Customize your brand. The sign-in page will prompt users to enter the email address they wish to use to sign in.
If Google and Apple login options are enabled, then the additional options will appear to "Continue with Google" or "Continue with Apple." The first time one of these options is used, the user will be prompted to link their account. On subsequent visits, the sign-in process will be instant.
If no member exists under under the given email address, the user will be prompted to create an account by entering their first and last name. No password is required, but the user may optionally create a password later under their Profile Settings > Create Password.
If an account already exists under the email address that was entered, the user will be shown an error message and can click on "Already have an account? Sign In" to continue.
Users can select "Sign in without a password" to have a magic sign-in link sent to their email address. One tap or click on the link in their email will sign them in.
Alternately, they can enter the 6 digit code included in the email to easily sign in on a different device.
If preferred, users can enter their existing Pathwright password to log in, or click the "Forgot password?" link to reset their password.
For accounts using SSO
If your account has a custom SSO (Single Sign On) method enabled, this will continue to work as before. Your account may have the Pathwright login disabled, in which case, that option will remain hidden for your account. Learn more about SSO here.
