Updated over a week ago

As the Kami License Administrator of your School or District Plan, there are three essential steps that you’ll need to complete. Each step ensures a smooth deployment to your school or district.

Read the step-by-step guide below to get started:

Step 1: Create your Kami account

You’ll need to ensure that you have a Kami account with the same email address that has been added as the License Administrator for your license.

Important: If you want to use Google Workspace to deploy Kami to your domain, please make sure that you use the Google Workspace Admin email to create your Kami account.

Note: If you still need to provide your Google Workspace Admin email in the Purchase Order (PO) form, please contact us at to get this updated. Recording your Google Workspace Admin email in our system is required for the deployment process.

If you already have a Kami account, you can confirm what email address you’ve provided by checking the PO form, or by logging into Kami and checking your Profile.

Step 2: Add users to your Kami License

The next step is to add users to the license so that teachers and students can start using Kami with access to all tools and features.

There are three deployment methods that you can choose from:

  1. Google Workspace (Recommended)

  2. Domain-wide deployment

  3. Manual upload of email addresses

Step 3: Deploy the Kami extension

Now it's time to deploy the Kami extension and Google Workspace app. It’s essential to have both the extension and Google Workspace app deployed to get the best Kami experience!

Adding the Chrome or Edge extension is required for Kami’s integration with your Learning Management System, and installing Kami’s Google Workspace Marketplace app is the easiest way to set up your users. As the admin, you’ll get to pre-approve permissions for them, allowing for a more straightforward login process.

Step 4: Adding Kami as a trusted third-party app

This final step only applies if your domain provider is Google. The configuration also needs you to be a Google admin to be able to access your Google domain admin page. If you are not a Google admin, you'd need to contact someone who can assist you with this step.

Due to a recent change regarding the authorization and approval of third-party apps for the Google Workspace for Education, there are essential steps you need to follow to enable students to log into Kami with their school-issued Google accounts. This change will apply to all users under the age of 18 from October 23rd, 2023. After that time, students cannot log into Kami with their Google account unless the Third-Party App Access Controls are configured correctly.
