Let's Talk! is a Customer Experience Platform that purports to unify school communication, meet students and teachers where they are, and build a stronger school climate and culture. This is configurable with RapidIdentity for SAML connections as desired.

To set up for this service:

  1. In Configuration > Security > Identity Providers > Federation Partners, click SAML Attributes in the bottom action bar.

    1. Sign SAML2 SSO Assertions: Conditional
    2. Encrypt SAML2 SSO Assertions: Never
  2. Click Save.
