The Grab n Go (GnG) Loaner project is a fully automated loaner management suite that manages enterprise enrolled Chrome OS devices by automatically assigning, returning, and monitoring these devices.
Using the GnG project, enterprise users can self-checkout a loaner Chromebook and begin using it right away, thereby decreasing the workload on IT support while keeping users productive.
The program is comprised of three parts:
If you haven't yet deployed Grab and Go to the Chrome Web Store
Enterprise/EDU customers can continue to deploy Chrome Apps to the Chrome Web Store using the guidance we've provided (specifically unlisted/private hosting in the Chrome Web Store) in the documentation for the forseeable future.
If you have deployed Grab and Go to the Chrome Web Store
You should be in good shape for now! Existing Enterprise/EDU Chrome Apps (Grab and Go included) are not in-scope until June 2022 according to the announcement linked above.
Note: If you are doing a new deployment please deploy from master as we work on cutting a new release. For current deployments, please hold off on upgrading until we can test the next numbered release.
Please note that the current release of this application is in ALPHA. We will be actively contributing to the project. Please keep an eye out for future updates and features!
