CDCWH8 - Can Clicker Docs be used in public sessions?
- Clicker Docs for Chromebook
You would like to use Clicker Docs during a public session.
Public sessions are a feature of Google Domains.
A public session lets someone use a Chromebook without needing to sign into a Google account.
They can be thought of as a universal guest account with no password.
Unfortunately, this isn't possible. You must be signed into a Google account to use Clicker Docs.
Otherwise, two major problems occur:
Authentication - without a Google account, it's impossible for Clicker Docs to link you to the subscription that you've purchased.
File saving - without a Google account, you can't save files to Google Drive. This poses a problem because all data is lost when a public session ends.
Information for Google Admins
While it's possible to add Clicker Docs to the Force-installed Apps and Extensions section of the Public Session Settings in the Google Admin Console, the app won't actually install if a public session starts.
This is because Clicker Docs is not flagged as a kiosk app (like most packaged apps on the Chrome Web Store).
