🤔 What Is SAML?

SAML is an important security standard that allows Taskade users to log in securely without having to remember and manage multiple passwords. SAML can be set up with Okta, Google Workspace, Azure, and other identity providers. Follow the instructions below to configure SAML via Google Workspace.

💡 Note: If your team is already using Taskade, your identity provider will take ownership of those accounts. Please inform your team before enabling SAML.

🛠️ Configure with Google Workspace

  • Requirements

    • The main account must be set up with a company email address.
    • Personal email accounts are not allowed.
    • Your email must be verified.
    • Taskade Unlimited plan is required.

🔵 Google Workspace Setup

Go to the Google Workspace admin dashboard. In the sidebar, select "Web and mobile apps" under Apps. Click "Add app", then "Add custom SAML app".
