Clicker Apps for Chromebook


How can I share my Clicker files? 

You'd like to share your Clicker files between devices or send them to other people.

Can we use the Chromebook apps in a managed guest session?

You would like to use our apps in a managed guest session (or kiosk mode).

Resolution

A managed guest session lets someone use a Chromebook without signing into a Google account. It can be thought of as a universal guest account with no password.

Unfortunately, our apps can't run in a managed guest session for technical reasons:

  1. Authentication – the app has no way of linking you to the subscription you've purchased.

  2. File saving – all local data is lost when the session ends. Without Google Drive, you can't save anything.

For IT Professionals

While it's possible to add our apps to managed guest sessions via the Google Admin console (Devices > Chrome > Apps & extensions), they won't actually install when a managed guest session starts.

This is because Chrome OS detects the apps as full packaged apps rather than basic kiosk apps.
