Sign in with Microsoft Azure SSO

After Microsoft Azure SSO is set up, teachers and staff must use their Azure AD credentials to log into your website's admin area.
On your website's login page click the "Login with Office 365" button.
Does your site have an "admin" user that you need to login as? You will have the option to click "Sign in as Super Administrator" instead.

The first time you sign in with Microsoft Azure

A popup modal will ask you to sign in with your Azure AD credentials.
The system will verify your email and password with Azure AD.
For many organizations, your account will already be setup and you will login immediately with all required privileges. If so, you are ready to go!
Otherwise, you will see the "Almost There" page with two options for how to proceed.

Yes, I have an account already.

This option is only if your school has moved from a standard Edlio authentication to Microsoft AzureSSO AND you email address has changed at the same time.
The left side of the "Almost There" page is for users who have an existing Edlio account.
We recommend you do NOT enter the super admin account here. This would bind the admin account to your Azure AD account only, preventing other super admins at your school from logging into the super admin account. To log in as the super admin, go back to the log in screen and select "Sign in as Super Administrator".

If you want to log in with Microsoft Azure, create a new account instead (see below). Then log out of it and log in as the super admin to give your new Azure AD-connected account web admin privileges.
After entering your Edlio username and password the system will associate your Azure AD account with your Edlio account. Your privileges remain the same as before.
Next you'll be taken to your dashboard.

No, please create a new account for me. / No, I need to submit a new account request.

If you are logging in for the first time and you have reached this page, you will most likely need to create a new account.
You will see the option to either "Create Account" or "Request Account Creation" depending on your organization's security policy.

Request Account Creation

Click the "Request Account Creation" button to request a new Edlio account be created using your Google account info. Website administrators will be notified of your request. You will not be able to login until an administrator grants your account creation request. Once your request has been approved, you will receive an email notifying you that you may now login.

Create Account

Click the "Create Account" button to create a new Edlio account using your Google account info.
The new account will be a regular user account with limited access.
You will be taken directly to the "Privileges" page.

Request Privileges

Review the privileges for your account. You may request changes, such as selecting your department.
Note: Your access will remain the same until your website administrator approves the change.
After submitting the request, both you and your website administrator will receive a copy of the request by email.
