Set up Google Apps Sync

Syncing Pingboard with your Google Apps account enables single sign-on for Pingboard through Google, imports Employees and profile data, and displays Google Calendars in Employee profiles. Once the integration is set up you can easily manage who is synced from your Google Apps account, and enable automatic invites for any new accounts synced from Google.

You'll need Admin access to both Pingboard and your company's Google Apps account to get started.

 

  1. Click Add-Ons, then select Integrations from the drop-down menu
  2. Click on the Google Apps integration, then click Enable
  3. Log into your Google Apps Admin account with your email and password

  4. On the Manage Sync screen, un-check boxes for accounts you don't want to sync to Pingboard (any un-synced profiles will be automatically removed from Pingboard)
  5. Click Confirm at the bottom of the page to complete your setup
  6. If your company uses the Out of Office integration, click here for instructions on setting up Out of Office events to sync to your company's Google Calendar

Warning If you set up Google Apps sync, we highly recommend that you turn off employee editing for fields being synced from Google Apps, especially the Email field. If the Email field is edited manually in Pingboard, the sync connection with Google Apps will be broken since it will no longer match that person's email address listed in Google.

Tip Data synced from Google Apps updates blank fields, but does not overwrite existing data in Pingboard. If you're interested in setting up automatic overwrite from Google Apps, let us know!
