  • DocsPlus for Chromebook


You've found DocsPlus in the Chrome Web Store and clicked Add to Chrome, but you see this error message instead:

DocsPlus is blocked by the administrator


Your Google Domain is configured to block all Chrome Apps except for ones allowed by your Google Admin.

Please contact your Google Admin and ask them to add DocsPlus to the list of allowed apps.

Information for Google Admins

If you have used the Google Admin console to force-install DocsPlus, but it isn't appearing on Chromebooks, your Google Domain may be configured to block all Chrome Apps except those on a whitelist.

To allow DocsPlus to be force-installed:

  1. Go to Device management > Chrome management > User settings.

  2. Select the domain (or an appropriate OrgUnit) on the right.

  3. Browse to the following sections and adjust accordingly:

    Allow or Block All Apps and Extensions

    Allowed Apps and Extensions

If this is set correctly for the domain, ensure that all OrgUnits are inheriting the settings correctly.
