Integration with Google Classroom

Log in to Google Classroom

To use any Google Classroom feature from our app, you must log in with your Classroom user first.

If you logged in to your account before opening our app, no login data will be requested. 

If you didn't log in with your Classroom user, then you'll be requested to access your Google user when you try any Classroom feature. Once you're logged in, you won't be asked again to log in. 

NOTE: The new window that pops up is from Google so no delicate information from your Google account will be kept in our app.

If you logged in to Google with a different account than the Classroom account, a message will be displayed saying you must close the current user account and open the one from Classroom. 

You can change the user easily by answering Yes to the question on the message to open a new window with Classroom access page.

In this Classroom page, you must log out from the current incorrect account.

Once you're log out, you can access with your correct Classroom user in the new window that will appear. Once you log in you must go to our app again to start working with Google Classroom features.
