If your organization uses Microsoft's products, ThingLink has a number of integrations designed to improve your experience. This article is a hub for all available integrations - check out the links to learn more about each of them.
Microsoft Single Sign-on (SSO)
If you are using Office 365 or Azure Active Directory, you can enable Microsoft SSO option. Once enabled, all members of your Office tenancy will automatically join your ThingLink organization when signing in with Microsoft. For educational institutions, we'll also automatically differentiate between student and teacher accounts.
