Setting Up Vosaic as a SAML App in Google Apps

- You must be in an Administrator role to access SAML settings in Vosaic, and have some experience with SAML configurations.
- You must complete the domain verification step completed.
- You must be using G Suite Enterprise, Business, Basic, Education, or G Suite Essentials edition
