    When we try to use the SSO with Slide Publisher, it opens a window within PowerPoint, which successfully loads the Clarizen interface. However, that doesn't reflect on the add-in, which remains logged out and we have to log in with username and password. We have SSO using Office 365 Azure AD.

    We have the exact same problem that Stoil Stoilov posted on March 9, 2018. Just wondering if there are any updates that could allow SSO to work with slide publisher add-in within PowerPoint.

    I guess there's no change, as I'm having the same issue
