Here are the steps how to configure managed Chrome browser app with the Managed Bookmarks. Requires Android Enterprise:

1. Add managed Chrome app to Miradore Online as follows https://onlinesupport.miradore.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000493229-How-to-add-managed-Google-Play-applications

2. Go to the app's Configuration tab

3. Find the configuration "Managed Bookmarks (string)" and click "Add".

4. Paste e.g. the string [{"toplevel_name": "Company's Managed Bookmarks"}, { "name": "Miradore", "url": "miradore.com" }, { "name": "Apple", "url": "apple.com"}] to the value field and click "Add" > "Close".

5. Please see the screenshot for more details:

6. Deploy the application to a device (enrolled to Device owner mode). NOTE! If you have Work profile enabled or if you have the managed Chrome already deployed via Miradore Online, you have to only deploy the configurations with the Action "Apply application configuration and policies" > click "Update".

7. Run the Chrome app and go the Bookmarks view. You should have now a new folder called "Company's Managed Bookmarks" as well coulple of new bookmarks there.

Hopefully this helps you configure the Managed Bookmarks for Chrome browser.

Is it possible to do this per tag? We span a large area and some URLs are irrelevant for certain users.

Hi John.

Currently it's not possible to deploy managed bookmarks per tag(s).

I can add this as a feature request, but have noticed that it's not currently on our development roadmap, so I wouldn't have any timetable to offer.
