Step 3: Roll out Dashlane to your organization
To invite new members to your plan from the Admin Console, select Users, Add users, and then add their emails. You can also bulk invite members with a CSV or TXT file.
You can also invite members to your plan with Microsoft Active Directory (AD).
If you’re an admin of a Business plan, you can invite members by integrating Dashlane with your Identity Provider (IdP). This is not available to admins of Starter or Team plans.
- Set up SSO and SCIM with Azure AD
- Set up SSO and SCIM with Okta
- Set up SSO and SCIM with JumpCloud
- Set up SSO with ADFS
- Set up SSO with Google Workspace
If you need to add more seats to your plan before you can invite new members, you can add them in the Account tab of the Admin Console or while inviting new members.
Step 4: Onboard your plan members to Dashlane
When members are added to your plan, they see prompts that help them learn to use Dashlane. In addition, here are our top recommendations to onboard them and help them learn:
- Send welcome materials to your plan members:
- Create or update your organization’s password policy to include Dashlane.
- Ask your plan members to turn on the admin-assisted recovery setting. If they don’t, they might not be able to access their account if they forget their Master Password.
In addition to admin-assisted recovery, members can set up the account recovery key to help regain access to their accounts if they forget their Master Password. Members can also download and log in to the Dashlane mobile app. If members turn on biometrics and Biometric recovery in the mobile app, they can reset their Master Password using their fingerprint or face.
You can also use GPO (Group Policy Object) to simplify onboarding for plan members:
Use GPO to disable other password managers that members might be using, like Chrome, Edge, or Firefox.
When members accept their invite to Dashlane, they're prompted to download the extension. However, you can deploy the Dashlane extension to your entire organization at once using GPO.
