Security and Simplicity

ClickTime has partnered with Single Sign-On providers to offer flexible SSO integration options. No new passwords to memorize, no hassles, no problem!

What is SSO?

SSO is Single Sign-On, and refers to being able to access a group of services using a singular means of authentication, without having to repeat the login process for each service. The primary advantages of SSO are centered upon increased convenience and security for the user, benefits that ClickTime strives for with all of its features. Single Sign-On—using a SAML-based authentication method— means you can access a group of services using a singular means of authentication—without having to repeat the sign-on process for each service. If you have SSO enabled with Google Apps, you can sign in once with your Gmail account, and then sign into many other services using that same Google ID.

Save Time and Effort

ClickTime wants to help simplify things for you and your employees. With SSO, you can access all of your applications--Google, your calendar, ClickTime--by authenticating just once, using one single login. You will no longer have to deal with the hassle of authenticating multiple times to reach different applications--instead, all of your applications are just a click away with SSO! Many corporate environments maintain a directory service to handle provisioning and management of employees. Our partnerships with SSO providers allow you to migrate your Windows-based user directory into the cloud, giving you greater flexibility.

One Password to Rule Them All

Imagine signing into one location, accessing your list app, your email app, or your ClickTime app, without needing to remember a different password for each. We understand that many employees struggle to remember and manage the variety of passwords that come with different services, so with SSO, there's only one combination they have to remember. No more wasting your time remembering unnecessary logins and passwords.

Secure Your Company's Information

With SSO, all of of your logins occur on one screen, which will help your employees identify phishing attacks and prevent possible transfers of sensitive information. And, because there is only one single point of entry, your employees are less likely to have their information compromised by hackers than those who must login multiples times across different websites with varying amounts of security.


With SSO, you have more security at your fingertips, from dedicated SSO providers according to their methods. Being able to access more security options than standard email/password gives you more options to your company, as well as more assurance that you can adapt readily to upcoming standards in authentication.

Ease of Use

ClickTime has partnered with companies like OneLogin and Okta to manage the migration process for existing ClickTime customers, and they provide any support necessary to upgrade your current security profile. With providers like Google, the integration is as easy as just using your gmail account. Before you know it, you can add ClickTime to your list of SSO providers, all using a common login method.

About SAML

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is a secure, open-standard XML-based communications mechanism for sharing identities between organizations and applications. SAML allows for more freedom of choice and enterprises are free to choose their vendors knowing that the standards ensure interoperability across identity providers.
