If you've signed up to ThingLink using a G Suite account and purchased a ThingLink School subscription, you can now have all users from your domain automatically join your ThingLink School account.
How to set up the G Suite integration
First and foremost, please ensure that you are your school's admin and that you have linked your ThingLink account to your G Suite account.
- Go to 'My school' page and open the 'Settings' tab on the left.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and tick off the 'Enable G Suite login'. By default, this setting is turned off.
Once the setting has been enabled, all users signing up with email addresses from your domain will automatically join your school, but they will still be asked to choose between teacher and student account types.
This includes students and teachers signing up via the ThingLink iOS app as long as they log in using their Google Account:
I'm a school admin but do not see the G Suite option
If you do not see this option under your school's settings, please log out and log in again using 'Sign In with Google':
If you have not signed in using your G Suite account since the feature was released, we cannot properly establish a connection between your G Suite organization and your ThingLink account. If you still cannot see the G Suite login option in School settings, please submit a tech support request.
What happens to students and teachers who've already signed up?
Those who already have an account on ThingLink and have not joined your School yet will be prompted to do so. Upon login, the site will show them a banner with an option to join your School:
If they decide to join your School, you will need to approve their request via 'My School' - 'Management requests'.
Note that students who are part of individual teacher subscriptions will not see this prompt. However, their teacher will. If the teacher decides to join your School, their students will join automatically as well.
