How to automatically login to SharePoint

If you are logged into a computer on campus using your own credentials, it is possible to login to SharePoint without having to enter your AU username and password each time. These instructions are for Internet Explorer 8only, but instructions for other browsers are widely available with a quick Google search. NOTE: DO NOT use this if you are logged into your personal computer at home, as it may not be the same as your AU user name and password.

  1. Add SharePoint to your trusted sites list: How to add SharePoint to your trusted sites list
