Chromebook Integration

Before we begin...

Before beginning the setup of the Chromebooks, we must first provide you with a temporary Activation Code to license the amount Chromebooks you currently have under management in Google Admin Console. Please email the total number of "Provisioned" Chromebooks to your FileWave Account Executive or FileWave Systems Engineer, and we will send the Activation Code to you as soon as possible.
