Google Workspace Migration Instructions

Why

The migration will enable Single Sign On across all of the Staunton Makerspace’s websites. It will also make provisioning and deactivating users easier. Longer term benefits include using the included member database for functions like per tool badge support.

Steps

You’ll receive an email from Migration@StauntonMakerspace.org with your Google Workspace username and your single use password.

If you’re not already logged in you’ll see a big blue “Sign In” button in the upper right corner. Click it.

If you’re already logged in, click the button with your current login in the upper right corner of the page. A menu like on the left will be shown. Click “Add another account”.

Enter your Makerspace username. It is in both the email you initially received listed as “Google Workspace Username” and also in the “username” field in the 1password credentials page.

Click “Next”.

Enter the password from the 1password credentials page. The “show password” checkbox can be used if you need to aid in entering or validating the entry.

Click “Next”.

You’ll be prompted to set a new password for your Google Makerspace Account. Use a solid password. If you’re worried about losing the password, try a password manager like 1Password or, worst case, write it on paper. Never record it electronically outside of specialized software like 1Password.

Click “Change password”

Congrats! You’ve logged into your Google Makerspace Account. Feel free to check out the cool features like email, drive, and other components.
