What does it mean to use my Office 365 account to log in to Blippit?

  • NOTE:
    Public Ministry of Education UAE Schools  log in here.
    Office 365 integration is already done and you don't need to follow the steps below.
    If you can't log in, you might be a teacher with an @adec.ac.ae email.
    Please contact sd@moe.gov.ae for support.

  • NOTE:
    Private schools in the UAE should log in here
    A teacher or technician will need to follow the steps below.
    If you are a student please speak to your school first for help.

After following the one-time Set Up Process, logging in to Blippit by pressing the 'Sign in with Office' button means that your children/teachers need never remember a username or password again for Blippit.


Changes made to your password via Office 365 don't affect how you log in to Blippit.


Requirements for signing in with Office 365 Log In Authentication


  1. Your school must have a Free or Upgraded Blippit account already registered.

  2. Keep the original 'Welcome' email, that you received from us, safe as it contains the master Blippit Administrator (Admin) account log in details. You will need these later.

 

Part One
One-Time Process for getting Office 365 Log In activated for your school

This is done by the Blippit Admin who will be a teacher or school technical support person.



  1. First, use your master Blippit Admin account details to log in to Blippit as normal.
    These are found in the first ever email you received from Blippit.
    Don't try to connect with Office 365 at this stage as it won't work yet!

  2. Follow the click path in Blippit (below) to begin the Office 365 integration process.

    Switch Control Panel -> User Admin -> Subcription Info -> See 'Click to Discover' link & click it ->
    -> Log in to Microsoft (MS) -> Now see that 'Click to Discover' in Blippit has updated to show a long Provider Identifier value

  3. Copy and paste the Provider Identifier value into an email and send this to support@blippit.co.uk  The value will look a bit like this:
    c95egca2-t1gg-1f00-a9fc-0dbd125231h0

    • Office 365 Administrator Tip
      Make sure your Office 365 Setup has the option for turning Integrated Apps SET to 'ON'. See Microsoft Article.

Now Log out & sit back :)
We will email you to confirm that the change has been implemented. (Normally well within 48 hours)


Part Two

Follow these steps on receipt of our confirmation email
  1. Log in to Blippit by clicking the Sign in with Office button and entering your Office log in
    signinwithoffice.png

  2. You are now logged in as a regular student Blippit User account.
    We next need to make you into a Blippit Administrator for your Office 365 account so... Log out!

  3. Now Log back in with your master Blippit Admin Account details.
    These are found in the first ever email you received from Blippit.

  4. In Blippit's User Admin, find your new Office 365 Blippit User Account and turn it into an Admin User following the click path below.

    Switch Control Panel -> User Admin -> Manage Users (tab) ->
    -> Scroll Right to see the Admin Column & tick this option next to your new Office 365 account -> Confirm


  5. For the last time, log out and back in again but this time use your new Office 365 account.
    You will be able to see User Management now because you have successfully made your own Office 365 linked account into a Blippit Admin account.

  6. Children can now log in to Blippit simply by clicking the Sign in with Office button - there are no extra steps for them. Teachers can log in to Blippit in the same way as the children but you will need to manually convert them into Blippit Administrators (repeat step 4 for each teacher)



Where are my school users listed now?


Users who have successfully clicked the Office 365 Log in button shown on Blippit's log in page (above) are then populated in the User Admin area of Blippit.


Here's how you can see them.

  1. Follow this click path

    Switch Control Panel -> User Admin -> Manage Users (tab)

  2. See your users listed.  Initially this will be just your own account(s) until children/teachers log in

  3. Add Group information if you want to (e.g. year group) in the Groups column by each user
