Chromebooks and Chrome browser - New “Gopher Buddy” icon4/2/2019
PURPOSE OF THIS COMMUNICATION
To inform PPS staff that PPS Chromebooks and computers using the Chrome browser will display a new “Gopher Buddy” icon in the toolbar.
WHAT IS HAPPENING AND WHY
The PPS Information Technology Department is using the Gopher Buddy browser software extension to identify Chromebook distribution by locations. The icon appears in Chrome browsers on other types of computers, however it does not perform any function on those computers. The Chromebook location information will improve our technology inventory data for planning and ongoing support.
WHAT IS THE IMPACT TO YOU AS A CLIENT
You or your students may notice the “Gopher Buddy” icon in your Chromebook or Chrome browser toolbar. You will not notice any performance impact and only location data is being reported.
WHOM DO I CONTACT WITH QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS
Please contact IT Support using the Support portal at support.pps.net, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling x63375 with any problems or questions you may have.
