Migration to GSuite based Dashboard Sign-In
Scalefusion Dashboard now allows users to Sign-In with their GSuite account. If you are using GSuite account in your organisation then you and your admins can seamlessly migrate to sign-in to Dashboard with your GSuite account.
In this document we will see how to migrate an existing account to sign in using GSuite.
Before You Begin
- A valid Scalefusion Dashboard account
- A valid GSuite account Id
In a nutshell, migration would require the following action(s):
- Sign In using GSuite Id: This is the first step to start the migration.
- Navigate to https://scalefusion.com
- Log out of Scalefusion Dashboard, if you are already signed-in.
- Click Login on the Scalefusion landing page.
- Click on Sign In with GSuite button
- You will be redirected to the Google Sign-In page
- Please enter your GSuite credentials (username and password) and complete the sign in process,
- Next you will be taken to a Thank you page where you would have to create a security PIN.
- Navigate to https://scalefusion.com
- Creating a Security PIN: A security PIN helps in authorizing certain actions on Dashboard which will require a two-step confirmation. This helps in preventing accidental deletes/edits of important data from Dashboard. To create a Security PIN please complete the steps below,
- Name: We try and fetch the name from GSuite username. You can Add/Edit the name.
- Phone Number: We try and fetch the phone number from GSuite credentials. Here you can edit the phone number.
- Create New PIN/Confirm Pin: Choose a 6 digit PIN that will be required to authorize certain actions on Dashboard as and when required.
- Click ACCESS NOW to complete the migration and start accessing the Dashboard.
- Once you have completed these two steps, you can now start using GSuite credentials to Sign-In to Scalefusion.
Migration for Existing Administrators
There is no specific action required from an Owner/Co-Account Owner to handle the migration for existing Administrators. All your existing Administrators can access the Scalefusion Dashboard either using the Scalefusion account that was created earlier OR they can use Sign-In using GSuite option and migrate as per the steps described above.
