If your employee is not already logged in to their Identity Provider, they will be prompted to log in with their Identity Provider in order to access Quantum Workplace:
When your employees receive an email prompting them to do something in Quantum Workplace, clicking the call to action will either route them directly into Quantum Workplace (if they are already logged in with their Identity Provider) or will prompt them to log in to their Identity Provider in order to access Quantum Workplace.
Your employees can also access Quantum Workplace through your Identity Provider's application portal:
Information for IT Professionals
We support SAML v2.0 protocol, but we do not support the older v1 or v1.1 protocols.
We DO NOT support “just in time” user provisioning through SSO. Quantum Workplace platform users are manually created in the platform by your Quantum Workplace platform administrator(s) unless other methods are agreed upon (e.g., HRIS integration, QW en masse, etc.)

An identity provider offers user authentication as a service. Common Identity Providers include Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), OneLogin, Ping Identity (PingFederate/ PingAccess), G Suite (Google), Okta, and ADFS.
