Integrating two software systems can seem like a daunting task to many. In an effort to help you on your cloud-based software integration journey, below are three frequently asked questions to learn how simple integrating a time and attendance system is.

Under General, the SSO options can be found in the Web Services section. Proper permission levels in the system are required to enable SSO. When under Web Services, you can check the box to enable SSO. At this time, a “Shared Key” GUID will be issued. After you enable SSO, you can choose to have web access & SSO, or SSO log in only. If “SSO log in only” is selected, stratustimelogin will be disabled.
