Hello SketchUp for Schools G Suite users!
You may have noticed recent changes in the login behaviour of SketchUp for Schools. This is because Google has made some alterations to their login procedures that require users to review and reaccept user permissions.
In the case of SketchUp for Schools, this means that your school or district IT Administrator will need to reaccept application permissions on behalf of your domain. The steps to do this now look a little different, and to help make things clearer we have outlined them below:
Sign into your school’s domain using an administrator account.
Important Note: Make sure this is an ADMINISTRATOR account with the ability to provision apps for your domain.
Navigate to Google Marketplace, then search and select the SketchUp for Schools app.
At the top of the listing, just below the SketchUp for Schools title, click the button reading ‘Domain Install’ to load the application permissions.
Please make sure that you have pop ups enabled.
Allow the app and accept the permissions to enable it for your domain.
Once you have accepted permissions for your school, students and teachers will be able to access SketchUp for Schools by selecting the app from the “waffle” app menu in Google Chrome or by visiting: edu.sketchup.com
*Important Note: Whitelisting a domain name is only required in rare situations where a domain is mistakenly identified as not being an education domain. It DOES NOT remove the requirements for your district administrators to give application permissions, and you will not be able to access SketchUp for Schools until these permissions are granted.
