How do I connect third-party apps to my Remind account?

Access and share content and resources directly from the Remind composer by integrating third-party apps, including Box, Google Classroom, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, SignUp, SignUp Genius, Smore, and SurveyMonkey.

If your organization has purchased the Remind plan, you may also have access to LMS and/or video integrations, including Canvas and Schoology as well as Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom.

Setting up app integrations

You can connect a third-party app to your Remind account from the New announcement composer or the Account Settings page on web as well as via the iOS and Android app. When you select the third-party app you want linked to your account, a pop-up box will prompt you to sign in to your app account. After connecting the app to Remind, you will remain logged into the app, and you will be able to access and attach content to your messages without ever leaving Remind.
