If you have multiple SameGoal accounts, linking the accounts allows you to easily switch from one account to another while logged in. Perks:

  1. While logged in, click your username in the top right.
  2. Select Add account.
  3. Enter the password for your current account.
  4. Enter your full username (including domain) and password for the account you wish to link. For example, if your username in the account you wish to link is bsmith, and your district domain is applegrove.k12.oh.us, type bsmith@applegrove.k12.oh.us.
  5. Click the Save button.
  6. Click your username again in the top right. You will see your newly linked account in the menu. Click to switch to that account.
  7. Repeat the above steps for each account you wish to link.

lightbulb TIP
You may add as many linked accounts as you like.

lightbulb TIP
It doesn't matter which account you perform the linking in. Your linked accounts will appear in the menu the same for any account you log in under going forward.

lightbulb TIP
When you used stored text in your account, any stored text you store will be available in all accounts. However, each district's stored text will only appear in the stored text menu when you are working in that particular organization.

lightbulb TIP
If you lose access to any linked account from an administrator, for example if your password is changed or your account is deleted, you will no longer be able to switch to that account through the account menu.

lightbulb TIP
Depending on the password policy instated by the districts you work with, you may need to enter your username and password for accounts that are linked before you are able to switch.

lightbulb TIP
It is best practice to have a different password for each account you link. Should someone gain access to one account, a different password may sometimes prevent them from entering others (depending on the linked account password policy of the other districts you work with).
