Is anyone using Google Apps Auth for SSO to Office 365?

We use Google Apps for email and are starting to use Office 365 for MS Office Suite Management with a domain account.  I can see my manually added Office 365 users in Azure AD.

I'm using G Suite's (Google Apps) administrator help page - Using SAML to set up federated SSO - Pre integrated applications N through Z - Office 365 cloud application.  The URL is: https://support.google.com/a/answer/6363817?hl=en

It seems to give good step-by-step instructions for accomplishing the task.

From the first section "Set up Office 365 as a SAML 2.0 service provider", I need to:
 - install Azure AD Connect to get the rest of my user accounts in Azure AD/Office 365
 - install AD FS for the federation

After this, step #6 states to configure the IdP certificates and set the URL using the Active Directory PowerShell on your federated Active Directory Domain.

I haven't used PowerShell to configure certificates or to set a URL, so I was wondering if anyone could provide guidance on the syntax for these commands or if there is a PowerShell script?

In case it's helpful, my domain controllers are Server 2012 R2.

If additional information is needed, please let me know.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
