OpenID Sign In Access

What is OpenID?

OpenID logois a third party program that allows you to have your login for one web site to also be used for other web sites. OpenID is being used by many popular websites such as Facebook and Google.

You can read more about OpenID by searching the Internet or by viewing web sites such as:

Many WhenToHelp users also have sign ins to other popular web sites such as Google and Facebook.

The Main Coordinator (and other coordinators with permission to change organization settings) can allow all users on the account to use Open ID sign in to access their WhenToHelp account by changing that option to "Yes" on the Settings>Information page.

The use of OpenID is not possible for anyone without a coordinator first setting that option to Yes.

Setting that option to "Yes" will allow helpers and coordinators to sign in and set up linking of their sign ins on their Information page. Then after linking, they can use the OpenID button on the WhenToHelp sign in page.

Using the OpenID button on the sign in page allows users to have immediate access to WhenToHelp if they are already signed into the other web site, saving them the trouble of having to remember and sign in with their WhenToHelp username and password.

Note: If the helper or coordinator is deleted, or their username or password is changed the link to OpenID is immediately removed.

To allow your account Helpers and Coordinators to use OpenID:
From any page:

  • Choose Settings>Information
  • Under Global Schedule & Access Settings, choose Yes for the last option "Allow users to sign in using OpenID"
  • Click the Save button
This will allow you and other users to connect other sign ins to your WhenToHelp sign in from their Info page.
