The new ManageBac Accounts portal built on OpenID upgrades our existing LaunchPad single-sign-on (SSO) service extending the capability from web to mobile.

Screen Shot 2018 02 12 at 10.56.24 1Connect additional services via the top right navigation menu, including:
i. Internal services: ManageBac, OpenApply, Subject Centre and BookJetty.
ii. Partner applications such as AssessPrep, BridgeU and iSAMS.
iii. Identity Providers such as Google Apps for Education and Office365 e-mail services.

Key Benefits:
i. Fully responsive design extends single sign-on from web to mobile (tablet + phone).
ii. Streamlined account linking of multiple user type accounts in ManageBac (e.g. Administrator, Teacher & Parent) or multi-campus school group accounts.
iii. Blazing fast speed and improved reliability.
iv. Common global login credentials with one single account.
v. Login using ManageBac credentials for AssessPrep and BridgeU.

Important Notes:
1. Users whose accounts were previously linked via the LaunchPad will need to re-enable SSO. Click here to get started. (If you have previously verified ManageBac accounts, you will be linked automatically if the e-mail address matches.)
2. This new feature is available to all user types.
3. Once you have setup your linked accounts, you will need to use your primary credentials on all connected accounts. If you have multiple accounts with different credentials, these will no longer work.
4. Once a user has linked their ManageBac account with the Accounts Portal, all password changes must be handled by the user directly in the Accounts Portal.
