Why can't I install Jive Anywhere for Chrome for multiple users at once using the Standalone installer?

Version 2

    In years past Jive has provided a MSI installer file that would allow community managers and administrators to install the Jive Anywhere Chrome extension to multiple users at once. This can be helpful when introducing the feature to an entire user base.


    Google no longer allows third parties to install Chrome extensions as of late 2015. Instead, all Chrome extensions must be installed via the official Chrome Web Store. This change was done to prevent malicious extensions from being installed into user's browsers. You can read more about this change in Google's help forum. Unfortunately there is no workaround for this security limitation, and Jive cannot aid in mass installing Jive Anywhere for Chrome users.


    This mass install feature is still available for Firefox and Internet Explorer. You can read more about how to do that in our product documentation.
