Here’s a great tip for Apps Admins which allows you to push out a set of standard bookmarks to all the Chrome users within your domain.

From within the Admin Panel, access the Chrome Advanced Settings, navigating via:

Apps > Additional Google services > Chrome Management > User Settings

This will then show in the top navigation bar as:

Apps > Google Apps > Settings for Chrome Management > Advanced settings

Scroll until you find the section named User Experience (near the bottom of the page) and you will see the options for Managed Bookmarks.

This allows you to enter:

  • Managed Bookmarks Folder Name (in our example GAPPSTIPS)

and then entries for

  • URL (the link destination)
  • Name (the name of the bookmark displayed)

Once the values are entered, click the + icon to the right of the Name

You can add as many bookmark entries as you want and once complete use the Save button at the bottom-right of the page.

Entries can be edited to modify them and deleted.

They will be displayed to the top left in all your domain’s Chrome users Bookmarks bar and users can optionally select to display them or not.
