Enabling Windows SSO on browsers allows users to login automatically using their Windows credentials. This is also known as integrated Windows authentication. The steps to enable Windows SSO differ depending on the browser. You may consider applying these changes to your users' machines through methods such as group policy.
ThoughtFarmer Windows Login Provider
Before you configure the browser settings, make sure you have the Windows SSO login provider in ThoughtFarmer configured. Go to the Admin panel: Users & security section > Login Provider page. If your intranet is self-hosted, make sure you have a provider under "Internal Provider" or "Default Provider" of the type "Windows". If your intranet is hosted on the ThoughtFarmer cloud, make sure you have a provider under "External Provider" of the type "Windows". If not, contact ThoughtFarmer support.
