FREE Google Sign-In plugin now available for booked scheduler AND phpSheduleIt!

FEATURES:
  • One-click Google login for existing booked users
  • Uses Google Sign-In, latest client library built on OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect protocols
Works with
  • Google Apps for Business
  • Google Apps for Education
  • Google Apps for Non-profits
  • Personal gmail.com and googlemail.com emails

PREMIUM VERSION:
  • Auto-Create Booked Users from Authenticated Google Login
  • Configure your Google button with full CSS control to create your unique button
  • Populate new user profiles based on their Google profile
  • Update existing user profiles based on their Google profile
  • Limit users to log in from only authorized domains
  • Disable regular booked username/password login to ensure terminated employees can not login in the future
  • Supports SINGLE or DUAL login (Google-only, or give users a CHOICE to use Google or booked!)

The free version is, in my testing, about 20% slower to log in than the Premium one (not by intent, it is just that the Premium version uses a stored Google auth number and pulls it from a database table, making it faster on consecutive logins), though similar to using the booked login button.

Chrome opens up a selection box (both versions) for you to choose which account you want to log in with.  Firefox does not - if you have authorized a Google account, it uses that (I have no idea why..., or how it might be stopped - in a way, it is nice as it is truly 'one click'...)

Download the FREE version or grab the Premium one NOW! http://cashflowproducts.com/tools/#SignIn_for_Google

How does this differ from the built-in social login feature in 2.6?

This package was built for pre-2.6 use - adding it on to 2.6 would likely not be a good idea, simply because you would have to disable the functions that 2.6 has added.

Our feature list is clearly shown in the original post and is fairly substantial - many of the 'free' version and some of the 'Premium' version may be part of the booked implementation, but I've not found (nor, obviously have you since you are asking me about it! Smiley a comprehensive list of the implementation done in 2.6, so the only way to really compare is to look in the booked code (or, perhaps Nick would care to comment and detail what was put in there) and/or simply try to implement all the features we have listed.

If anything is not in 2.6, we are always happy to discuss development of a 'for 2.6' version.  If you would like an estimate, please use our Help Desk - that is the best way to discuss such things.

Well, the main thing missing in 2.6 seems to be the ability to filter or specify allowable domain(s).  It seems it will let you log in with any google account.

Hossam,

Please note that you have posted this 'negative sounding' comment on a post that is about a product released by CashFlowProducts.com (CFP), without any regard to the product directly (as we discontinued it some time ago - it is highly unlikely you have even seen our product....)

What you seem to be referring to is that Booked Scheduler (made by Twinkle Toes Software) has the ability to retain login information when you use Google login with the released (unmodified) version of Booked Scheduler - - - yes, this is true and I'm also not a fan of it (and not a fan of it not being disclosed either.....) - though that is how they choose to present the software.

CFP does NOT keep any information of yours when you are using our products (the exception to that is if you are using our SaaS service(s), etc. and we have to retain identifying info as part of the login sequence, permissions, etc. - and we still do not keep anything other than a minimal set of reference information - i.e., nothing 'personal'...)

Please do not spread 'rumors' - be sure you are talking about the right product on the right forum post.  I really believe your post should be on some other place than one talking about the free product we (CFP) offered for those using older versions of Booked Scheduler.

To be fair, the likely reason the developers at Twinkle Toes Software (the makers of Booked Scheduler) retain this is for easy of installation for those new to the software - otherwise, you have to go through signing up as a Google developer and get your own codes, etc. (not difficult, but a lot of extra effort just to get the software running..... - one of the challenges we faced when releasing our product - - - - we chose to provide detailed information on how to sign up to Google for the codes instead of retaining it as Twinkle Toes Software does in Booked Scheduler - simply a business policy choice....)

And, as for your question of "any chance that any one did it?!" - while it isn't clear what you mean by that, I think you mean to ask if anyone is using their Google account to log into Booked Scheduler.  I'm sure there are many that do - I can say that I use it regularly (and, yes, I understand what that means.....)

So, now that you understand what they are doing, and that some people (at least 1! Smiley are using it, perhaps it is a good opportunity for you to contribute to the forum in a positive way and provide those interested in the code on how to not be 'tracked' by Twinkle Toes Software...... (much better than posting 'negative sounding' comments!)
