Admin Console settings for the Gophers

 

Whitelisting Add-On

To prevent delays in installation, we recommend whitelisting our add-ons within the Google Marketplace Apps settings. To do that, navigate to Apps > Marketplace apps > Whitelisted Marketplace apps. Select the + icon in the right hand corner and search Gopher for Chrome. Check the box next to our add-on and select Whitelist, then Confirm.

API Access

Amplified Labs uses Google's APIs to gather information about your Google Resources.  In order to use these, you will need to enable API access.  This is found in the Security Section of the Admin Console under API reference.


Some of Amplified Labs tools utilize Google Drive to store a local cache file.  In order to use this, you will need to permit Addons to use the Drive API.  The setting for this can be found under Apps > G Suite > Drive and Docs > Features and Applications under the setting Drive SDK. 


Session Data

Chrome Gopher utilizes the Admin Console's data to report Chromebook metadata to the Administrator in a readable format.  The Most Recent User metadata field is updated within the Admin Console on the Logout event on the Chromebook.

The Logout event is also tied to the device setting to erase local user data.  As a result, when this setting is configured to erase user data, the Most Recent user data is empty.  The setting for this can be found under Device Management > Chrome > Device Settings and we recommend setting the User Data setting to Do not erase all local user data if administrators want to have a list of recent logged in users.
