The Sign in with Google option is available without any additional setup if the following two items are true:
1. Your district makes use of Google Apps
2. You use an email address associated wtih that Google Apps account.
Only if a district uses a Google Account at a different domain than their email address field, will they need to populate the Google Account field within 4Schools.
Sign in with Google is available for all of the 4School Apps.
4School apps now offers the option to sign in with your Google account.
If the email address currently associated in your 4Schools account is tied to a Google Apps account, you will be able to just click on the 'Sign in with Google" button to gain access to any of the 4Schools products your district uses.
Are you seeing an error message?
An error stating "No user was found matching your Google sign in account", like above, means that your email address within your 4Schools account is not associated with the district's Google Apps Account for your domain yet. You can make these changes to your user/profile account or ask your administrator to do so on your behalf.
