Install DocsPlus Universal App for Chromebook

Follow these steps to install and license the DocsPlus Universal App.

Note: everything on Chromebook happens per user instead of per device:

  • When you install an app, it's just for you. If someone else signs into the same Chromebook, the app won't appear for them.

  • Once installed, the app will appear automatically on any Chromebook you sign in to!

Choose from one of the following depending on the type of installation you wish to perform:

Standalone installation

Network installation

Standalone installation


While optional, we recommend installing the app:

  1. Click google-download-icon in the address bar and click Install.

  2. For easy access, right-click the new app icon in the bottom toolbar and choose Pin to keep it there.

    The app will now appear in the launcher of any Chromebook you sign in to and can be used offline!

    Whichever way you run the app, it will automatically update itself. You may see a prompt asking your permission to update – when granted, the update will happen instantly.

License deployment

Following this guide will install the app to users’ Google profiles. It won’t automatically license them.

  • If you have a Flexi-License subscription, and don’t share your Google domain with other schools, all users should be licensed automatically (the app should launch with no messages).

    If this isn’t happening, please contact Support and provide us with your Google domain.

  • If your subscription has a fixed number of licenses, users can be added to the subscription via our license management portal.

    Alternatively, users can license themselves by launching the app and entering your Organization ID + Enrollment Password codes on launch.

To find out how you can see the status of your subscription and manage which users are licensed, please click here.

If you don't have a subscription, you can register a trial. If someone else on your Google domain already trialed the app, you may receive an evaluation expired message.

If you experience this or any other problems, please contact Support.
