Adding Clever to Google Apps "Waffle"?

    Hi Ken,

    This is a great idea - allowing Clever to SSO students into their Google Account via their badge at school, and allowing students to SSO from Google into their Clever accounts when they're at home via SAML.

    I have a few ideas about how you can meet that need:

    1. You should be able to set up Google as a SAML identity provider with Clever, using our "Active Directory" option. More info on how to do that here: Note - I'm not sure that Google meets all of Clever's requirements as a SAML IDP. Just in case this doesn't work, I have a couple additional ideas:
    2. You could send badges home with students (they can log in at and add Google Apps to their portal as a Universal SSO app, so they can easily access Google once they're logged in to Clever (
    3. You could add Google as a log in method to Clever (if you haven't already) and then direct students to your district's custom login URL. Unfortunately, it seems like you can't add a static URL to your GSuite "waffle"... That might be a good feature request for Google. (Or perhaps in the future Clever can make a simple Marketplace app).

    Hope this helps!
