Enroll a Chromebook to be Managed by the Church

Chromebooks ordered through the EMarket from CDW will come already enrolled. Chromebooks ordered from Dell, or any other source will need to be enrolled. A Chromebook should be enrolled before it is used as a clerk computer. Once enrolled, the Chromebook cannot be unenrolled.

Who can enroll a Chromebook?

Chromebooks that arrive unenrolled should be enrolled by the technology specialist before being given to the local unit.  

Note: Anyone authorized to create an account (see below) on the clerk Chromebook can enroll the Chromebook in Church management.  

  • Ward Clerks, including Assistant Clerks
  • Stake Clerks, including Assistant Clerks
  • Ward-based Technology Specialists
  • Stake-based Technology Specialists (preferred)
  • Branch Presidents and Bishops.

    • Sign out of your Chromebook user account
    • Press and hold Ctrl + Alt + Shift + R
    • Click Restart
