The convenience of web apps – available on any device with a web browser – is often mitigated by the curse of the forgotten password. When we were deciding on the feature set for MinuteBase 2.0 the ability to sign in using other services was high on the list. For example many MinuteBase users also work with Google Apps.
Take take up of this feature for new users has been incredibly high, because we ask people to choose a sign in provider when registering. What is less well known is that existing users can easily add providers from their profile. MinuteBase supports these services:
Adding a provider
Go to your profile by clicking your name in the top right of the navigation.
Click the Edit Profile button and select Authentication from the side panel.
You’ll see a list of sign in providers. Click one of the add buttons and you’ll be directed to the service to approve. Done!
OpenID is slightly different. Paste your provider’s url and click Attach.
When you come back to sign in to MinuteBase, we’ll remember which authentication method you used last time.
