Desktop single sign-on is now available for RM Unify Premium schools in England and Wales. This new feature is available at no extra charge.
What is Desktop single sign-on?
Desktop single sign-on (DSSO) for RM Unify provides a facility whereby students and staff are automatically logged into their online services (including email) through RM Unify when they are logged into a school windows device (PC or laptop). Where Desktop single sign-on is not switched on, you must login to the device, go to the RM Unify login page and login again to your online services. Desktop single sign-on reduces the login process to just one step.
How Desktop single sign-on works
How do I get it for my school?
There are 3 main steps involved in setting up Desktop single sign-on:
- Install RM Unify AD Sync v3 (you will be required to upgrade if you already have v1 or v2).
- Configure the new SSO settings in the RM Unify Management Console
- Configure the SSO settings on your school network and chosen browser.
Full Details on each of these steps can be found in the RM Unify v3.0 Release Note
