Single click sign-on to Intranets company portal

Please read this article ONLY if your company is using Intranets as a company portal. You can figure out if that’s the case by looking at one of the following addresses (replace acmecorp with your company name):

If you recognize any of them then keep reading.

My major complain with my company portal on intranets is that I have to type each time the username and password in order to access the site.

Wouldn’t be nice to place a button on Links toolbar (in IE) and automatically be logged on Intranets?
More than that: wouldn’t be nice that by a single click on a button to be logged in Intranets and a certain page inside to be displayed?

This is possible by implementing the following trick:
  • Copy and paste the following HTML content on a text file on your harddrive.
  • Put a button on Links toolbar to point to this file
  • Edit the HTML file and replace username and password with your intranets credentials and acmecorp with your actual company name.
  • The form action querystring link parameter is the link to an internal intranets application. If you just want to go to home page remove the link parameter.
