Set up the Jamboard device

After you've powered on the Jamboard for the first time and connected the device to an open Wi-Fi network, a screen appears with an 8-character activation code.

  1. On your computer, open a Chrome browser.
  2. Go to the Jamboard Device Management Console.
  3. Sign in to your G Suite account.
    • You need to sign in with an account on the domain you want the Jamboard to be set up with.
    • If this is the first time a Jamboard is being provisioned on the domain, a Super Admin account must be used to accept the Terms of Service. Afterwards, anyone with the “Jamboard Management” privilege set in the Admin Console ( will have access to the Jamboard Device Management Console.
  4. Click Expand at the top of the page to add a new device.
  5. Enter a location and name for the Jamboard.
  6. Enter the 8-character activation code and click Activate Device.

You should see "All set!" on the Jamboard, and then the Jamboard main screen with a brief tutorial.
