We are excited to make it easier and smoother for you to log into Anaplan.

From now on, Anaplan SSO users tapping a link to an Anaplan destination (Classic, NewUX or WorkflowEA) can log in through a new link:"Log in with Single Sign-on (SSO)". 

This link is visible under the email address field. The enhancement will direct users to their SSO provider's portal page to enter their credentials.

If they have clicked on a destination to Anaplan, after successful login they will land on the destination page.

This also means SSO users can login directly to Anaplan from Frontdoor.
