  • Updated

InsideView by default will ask users to log in to InsideView with their username and password unless Single Sign-On (SSO) is enabled for CRM. This article assumes SSO is not enabled in your CRM and outlines the nuts-and-bolts of user login process.

 1 Go to the InsideView screen

You will be prompted with the following screen when you first attempt to access InsideView. If you have forgotten your password or intend to procure a new password, click I Need a Password button. 


Note: InsideView supports Single Sign-On (SSO) using SAML with a view to providing the ability to login just once across all the applications and operating systems you need to access. If you're a user, request your administrator to configure SSO. If you are an administrator and want to configure SSO as a one-time setup for your team, click the here link in the above figure to learn more about the procedure to set up SSO.
