Save time with Active Directory Synchronization (AD sync) by quickly and easily syncing your users onto your Healthcare Intranet. This allows your user data to just be managed within your Active Directory, and any changes made will be automatically pulled over to the Staff Directory on your intranet, completely eliminating manually having to add users. To see Active Directory Synchronization in action, request a personalized demo of our Healthcare Intranet.

Establish an Active Directory connection with your credentials.

Create an Active Directory Connection

Active Directory Synchronization allows you to link your Healthcare Intranet to your Active Directory. Any changes made in Active Directory, such as users contact information or job title, will automatically be pulled in after the time interval set under your Active Directory Synchronization settings leading to a significant reduction in administration of logins and staff profiles. It also gives you the ability to seamlessly sign users into the site with their domain credentials.


Syncing AD Groups & Managers

Active Directory Synchronization will pull over your individual AD Users onto your intranet as well as your Active Directory Groups & Managers. Selecting targets to sync, such as logins or groups, allows you to pull over only the desired users and groups to your intranet. Defining targets helps to narrow the scope of what you are bringing over from your Active Directory.

Staff Active Directory Synchronization

Syncing login data allows your users to seamlessly sign into your Healthcare Intranet with their domain credentials, which is huge in time-savings.  However, we’ve taken Active Directory Synchronization one step further and added staff sync as well, which flawlessly pulls in staff data such as department, location, title, job description, etc.  This information can be updated in Active Directory and then automatically pulled onto your intranet. In addition, you can allow for multiple domain and target definitions with a preview of the items for a given target. This is extremely useful for a merger and acquisition situation where one directory has different fields filled out and you only want to sync up important fields from each directory.

Healthcare Intranet - Active Directory Synchronization - Single Sign-On

Single Sign-On

When configuring Active Directory Authentication on your Healthcare Intranet, it is possible to enable single-sign on so that staff network logins are passed to the intranet and your users are automatically logged into the software each time they visit your intranet. In order to effectively assist in enhancing your internal processes, your Healthcare Intranet needs to be easily accessible to your users. Not having to enter login credentials each time the site is visited saves time, encouraging higher intranet adoption rates. With pass-through authentication, staff can visit the site in one click, simply by opening their browser.
