===================================================================================================================================================== I was looking at the ASUS Chromeboes in your store. I noticed that there is a change for Chrome Management license managed by Rise Display ($150). What is this for? I thought Rise Vision was free. If I configure my own Chromebox, am I subjected to have to get a Chrome Management license?

HI Robert,

Rise Vision is free but to configure and manage a chromebox there is a Google license to lock the device into kiosk mode.  you can learn more at https://www.google.com/work/chrome/management-console/index.html

This license is the only way we can pre-configure a device before shipping it to you setup and ready to go and it allows us to lock down and secure the chromebox.

If you want to secure a chromebox via other providers you are more than welcome to do that and install our chrome app and there are some tips in various posts in our forum for how others have configured their chromeboxes without this.

Hi Ryan,

I've bought the Chrome Box and Google License, I was expecting to be able to administer the box ourselves if we wanted to.  Tried to access the Google Admin with my Gmail account, but couldnt.
Could you please explain how to access the management console?

Alex,

Was this chromebox purchased through the Rise Vision store?
