Installing the Chrome Extension can be done individually by end-users or centrally by a G Suite admin. To install the extension centrally, a G Suite admin must install the extension to each end user’s Chrome profile through a forced install. When leveraging a forced install, end-users cannot disable the extension.

Installing by Organizational Unit

Step 1

From the main G Suite Admin landing page, navigate to the Device Management tile.

Step 2

Click on Chrome Management on the left.

Step 3

Navigate to User Settings.

Step 4

Pick the Org Unit you want to install to, on the left. You can select the top-level to target all users.

Step 5

Scroll down to the Apps and Extensions section.

Step 6

Click on the Manage force-installed apps link in the Force-installed Apps and Extensions section.

Step 7

Click on the Chrome Web Store tab.

Step 8

Search in the Chrome Store for the Sigstr Chrome Extension.

Step 9

Add it to the list and save the modal.

Step 10

Click save at the bottom of the settings page.

This will push the extension to the domain profiles of all chrome users. The extension will be added the next time end-users restart Chrome.

If an end-user is not signed into their domain profile in Chrome, they can setup a new Chrome profile by signing into their domain account and the Extension will appear. Installs will be pushed out to Windows, Mac, Linux, etc. (anywhere Chrome is running).

Installing Manually

Step 1

Visit the Chrome Extension Store.

Step 2

Click Add to Chrome.

Installing via Group Policy

Using policy to deploy an extension is the most scalable method. It is beneficial for pushing extensions, as it does not require the CRX file to be on the machine. It must simply be available at a given URL.

To use this method, set the policy to “force install” the extension, as described here. Read more about group policy on Google’s Support Site.
