There are no login requirements for employees to answer surveys - with the exception of surveys being answered using Kiosk mode.

 Log in requirements are only in place for those employees who have been granted access to log into Peakon to view survey data. This group of employees, typically managers, will need to log in using their company email address, at which point they will also be asked to create a password.  

 Alternatively, as an administrator of your company's Peakon account, you can enable single sign-on for this group of employees to streamline their login experience on Peakon.

 Peakon’s single-sign-on service is listed in the Azure AD App Gallery. See steps below to configure Peakon SSO in Azure AD

Enable single sign-on in Peakon

As an administrator of your company's Peakon account, you can enable single sign-on by first selecting the "Administration" option in the left menu followed by "Integrations". Select the Single Sign-On option and click the yellow "Enable" button and you’ll be taken to the page you see in the screenshot below.

On this page, you will later input your SSO login URL and certificate provided by ADFS. Here you will also find the entity ID and reply URL (ACS) for Peakon, which you will use when configuring ADFS a bit later in this guide.

1. Launch Azure AD then navigate to Enterprise Applications


2. Now search for “Peakon”


3. On the Peakon overview page click on “Set up single-sign-on” 


4. Follow the steps by entering the ACS URL and Entity ID which you need to get from the Peakon Integrations page. 


5. You then need to ensure the fields in Peakon match in your AD instance. The default values should work if you have not changed the default values in Peakon. 


6.  Download the certificate in base64 format and upload to Peakon. 


7. Lastly, copy the Login and Logout URL into Peakon

Test that single sign-on is working

Now that you have configured Azure AD to integrate with Peakon, you are ready to test it:

  1. Go to app.peakon.com/login and enter your company email address.
  2. After entering the email, Peakon will detect that this email supports single sign-on, and clicking the "Sign in" button will redirect you to internal Azure AD sign in page, before redirecting you back to Peakon and logging you in.
  3. If you prefer to sign into Peakon using your existing password, you can skip the single sign-on step by clicking "Sign in using password" after entering your email.
  4. Optionally, go directly to (or bookmark) app.peakon.com/saml/{your email domain}, which will start the single sign-on flow directly without visiting the Peakon login page first.
