Kiosk Mode

Kiosk mode enables schools who do not issue a device for every student to utilize SmartPass. By placing a chromebook, iPad, or any web-enabled device in the corner of a room, students can use the kiosk to select their destination and maintain a digital history of when they left the classroom. Teachers are still able to issue passes to students and hall monitors can verify that students in the hall are traveling with a pass.

How to enter Kiosk Mode

  1. First, make sure your teacher account has a room assigned to it and that you can see the My Room Tab.
  2. If you have multiple rooms assigned to your account, select the All Rooms drop down and click on the room that the kiosk is going to placed in.
  3. Click on the enter kiosk mode button.

Configure a device / user policy that only allows access to certain domains by following these steps:

  1. Set the URL blacklist entry to "*" to block all websites
  2. Create a blacklist exception and add "smartpass.app/app" and "accounts.google.com/signin"
  3. See this link for more information on how to access the blacklist and blacklist exception settings: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/2657289#urlblacklist
  4. Students can no longer access another website on the kiosk chromebook.
