I work for a small non-profit Native American School in southeast Idaho. We have our own daomain with e-mail addresses, but I would like my teachers to begin using google docs. Currently they have to create a separate e-mail account to use google. I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to link our e-mail accounts with g-mail like Boise State has done with student e-mail addresses.
Then we could share spreadsheets, forms, and other documents without having to have two separate accounts. Just trying to streamline things.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Smiles!
Thanks Parick! That is exactly what I needed. It worked perfectly.
This may be oversimplified, but if no other options work out you can always suggest that they setup a gmail account. Then they can forward their gmail accounts to their school accounts. This is how I manage my emails.
Our school uses Google Docs for everything because we are completely virtual. When they sign up for an account, it creates a gmail account, but once they are logged in they can link another email account. All they need to do is click on the arrow next to their name at the top of the window and choose "Account" underneath their name (not "Add Account"). Then, under "Email Addresses and Usernames" click "Edit". On the new page, the last field is to add a new alternate email address. They can enter their school address there, and they can log in with the school address. I hope that helps!
Thanks for your replies. The link that Patrick gave me was exactly what I was looking for. It allowed me to use our current school addresses and route them through google. All the teachers now sign into google with their firstname.lastname@example.org.
