How do clients enable the Google integration?
To enable the Google integration, clients need to log into Reward Manager, go to the Integration Dashboard and search for “Google” under the “Explore Integrations” tab.
Select the integration and turn it “On” using the toggle button in the top right-hand side.
How do employees use the Google integration?
When enabled, employees will be given the option to sign into their platform using Google as their Identity Provider. The journey will look like this:
Step 1: Employee visits their platform URL and clicks “Sign in with Google”
Step 2: The employee is asked to Authorize the Reward Gateway application by Google
Before Reward Gateway can access any of the employee’s data stored on their Google account, the employee must explicitly grant access to the data. If the employee chooses to “Cancel” at this stage, the authentication attempt will fail.
If the employee chooses to “Allow”, they will grant Reward Gateway access to the their email address, language preference and their approximate age on their Google account.

Step 3: The employee is logged into their program
Reward Gateway will look up the member based on the information passed from Google and try to locate a registered account. If a valid account is found, the employee will be logged in automatically. If not, they will be prompted to complete a registration step.
Can employees remove their Google account from their Reward Gateway account?
Yes, at any time the employee can go to the menu in the top right > Account > Account Settings > Security Centre (from the menu on the left) > scroll down to the ‘Linked Accounts’ section > Click ‘Unlink’.
