What is Active Directory Sync and how to set it up?

Instead of adding and removing users manually which can be very time-consuming, setting up Active Directory Sync can minimize the effort of managing access to SlideHub in the event of personnel change. User access to SlideHub will be updated automatically once the Active Directory Sync is set up, increasing the security of your company's assets. Once we have received your request, we will send you guidelines to complete the Active Directory set up. Afterwards, we will perform the synchronization when it is ready. The last step is to activate the sync in your account by going to the Security tab under Account Settings, and choose ‘Save and Sync now’.

We recommend that the IT team use the Active Directory Sync, because:
IT is in control
It is easier for the user
It takes few minutes setting it up
Instead of the users doing a lot of manual work, the IT team can generate users and permissions through the use of Active Directory Sync

If you would like to set up Active Directory sync for your SlideHub account, please contact the Customer Success team.

What is Single Sign-On (SSO) login and how to set it up?

Note: Single Sign-On is only offered to our Growth and Enterprise customers

There are few ways to log in:
Microsoft 365 account - we recommend logging in this way as it requires less effort for the users

SSO is an identification method that enables users to log in to multiple applications and websites with one set of credentials. By enabling users to log in just once per day using a single set of credentials. the number of attach surfaces is minimized, making organization more resilient against password-related security breaches. Once it is set up, users will be able to access SlideHub library via SSO instead of typing their work email and password every time when they log in. Alternatively, if your organization already uses Office 365 or Google, you can also sign in from there. If you would like to set up SSO login for your SlideHub account, please contact the Customer Success team.

To provide a secure log in for our clients we partnered /worked with WorkOS for our login solutions, which helps us to provide the best UX for our clients. Through WorkOS dozens of identity providers are supported. To learn more, please go to WorkOS.
