As a District Admin you can set up Instant Login from the Clever Dashboard by clicking 'Settings' > 'Login Settings' in the left side menu. There are four main steps to setting up Instant Login:
- Portal Configuration
- Identity System
- District Information
- Rolling out Instant Login to your district
1. Portal Configuration
The first step is to determine the unique Portal URL for your district, which your students and teachers will use to access Clever and connected applications. The portal URL will be www.clever.com/in/<shortname>. Remember to use something that your students and teachers will remember easily. To change your district's Portal URL, click the URL text box to edit the shortname. Make sure to click Save! Here are more resources about managing the Clever Portal.
If you would not like to use the Clever Portal, the second option allows you to link directly to your district-specific portal URL. Here's how you can add Instant Login Links to your district-specific portal.
2. Identity System
Clever Instant Login allows students and teachers to access education apps with the username and password they already use in your district. On this step you'll choose what identity provider you want students and teachers to use when logging into Clever.
- Which identity provider should I use?
- Instant Login with Clever Passwords
- Instant Login with Google
- Instant Login with ADFS
3. District Information
Clever Support is prepared to help district-level staff troubleshoot connecting Instant Login to your user management system (e.g., GAFE or ADFS), but we do not have the ability to help districts manage school-level user accounts and password troubleshooting.
It is important to include the technical support contact for your district. This should be the person or office that can assist teachers and students with various issues that concern the user management system or synced credentials.
When errors arise that can be solved by the district tech office, the contact information you provide will appear on the Clever login page for your district's Portal.
4. Rolling out Instant Login
Distribute login information to teachers
Once you've configured your Instant Login settings, you can send a bulk email to your teachers, letting them know how to log in, and which credentials they and their students should use. Click "Preview Draft" on the Instant Login Settings page to review the email - then send!
Notify Teachers When They Get Access to a New Application
Enabling the ‘Notify Teachers’ button on the Instant Login Settings page will allow teachers in your district to receive an automated email when they have access to a new application.
View and download usage metrics
The Usage Metrics page of your Dashboard shows you data about how your users are accessing Clever Instant Login and their connected apps. Scroll down and click "view all" to search and export the raw data!
Monitor successful and unsuccessful Instant Login attempts
The Logs page of your Dashboard indicates log attempts from students and teachers in your District from the past 7 days. This is a helpful tool when troubleshooting Instant Login issues!
