By default, to improve readability, Gopher for Chrome both excludes and hides certain columns of device data. To include/exclude or make hidden/visible, you can use the handy Set visible columns tab in the sidebar (see right). Learn more.
Scroll down for details on the meaning of each of these column groups.
Gopher Buddy session data (optional)
Gopher for Chrome Premium includes access to a domain-authorized web service and domain-wide, force-installed Chrome extension that offer a higher resolution of device session history and data (such as IP address) and reporting than Google's native features.
|Gopher Buddy Session Data (read-only)
|The email address of the most recently reported user session via the Gopher Buddy extension for this device. Learn more.
|The start time of the most recently reported user session (for the reported user).
|The duration of the session.
|The private IP address of the device for this session.
|The public IP address of the device for this session.
|Device OS Version
|The version of Chrome reported via the browser for this session.
Additional single device and single user reporting options are also available with the Gopher Buddy service. Learn more.
All Other Data (Available to Both Gopher for Chrome Basic & Premium Customers)
Data columns are grouped by type into the following three colors (categories). Most of these correspond directly to values as returned directly from Google's APIs. See Google's API resource definition to look up the meaning of any camelCase variables below.
|Serial Number (REQUIRED)
Manufacturer assigned serial number. It may not always be unique for a given fleet. May also change if motherboard is replaced.
Typically hidden, it is the last column to the right. This is rarely important for humans but is CRITICAL to performing bulk device updates since SN isn't unique. Do not delete this from the sheet or paste devices into the sheet without this info.
Auto Update Expiration
|The end date of Google's official support for Chrome version auto-updates. See this article.
|Ethernet Mac Address
|Mobile Equipment Identifier
|Editable device properties
|Org Unit Path
|The branch in the domain org unit tree in which this device resides. Org units can be used to manage device policy settings.

|The location assigned from the Admin console, or upon the most recent update via API.
|Annotated Asset ID

|The notes assigned from the Admin console, or upon the most recent update via API. Often used as a catchall for other metadata.
|Number of major Chrome versions behind
|Each Chrome device model may have a different stable release available as the official recovery OS. This number lets you know how many major versions this device is behind the latest. The number may be negative if your devices are ahead of the most recent recovery OS image.
|Latest stable Chrome version for model
|Each Chrome device model may have a different stable release available. This number is looked up against Google's official tables using the model and firmware as reported in the Admin console. The version may be Unknown if the lookup fails based on this information.
|Most recent user is annotated user
|TRUE if they match, FALSE if not, blank if not applicable. Useful in environments with assigned users for devices.
|Most recent user
|The most recent user recorded in the list of recent users available via the admin console. Requires device settings to be set to allow the collection of this info.
|Active dates in last 15 days
|A count of the number of dates of usage activity for this device as reported in the admin console within the last 15 calendar days.
|Active minutes in last 15 days
