3. If you've never uploaded an item before, you need to accept the developer agreement before going to the next step.

4.   Click Choose file > your zip file > Upload. If your app's manifest and ZIP file are valid, you can edit your app on the next page. 

5. If the icon to the right of the “Upload” section is a puzzle piece, extract icon_128.png from zip and re-upload it in the “Icon” section.

6. Be sure to set the Visibility options at the end of the page to “Private” --> “Everyone at <yourGoogledomain>”. Remember, this app is specific to your organization and will not be useful to people outside of your organization.

Go to Kiosk Settings on the Device settings page, and select the kiosk app you want to launch automatically from the drop-down list.

·         Click the device settings page link to go to the Kiosk Settings.

 In the drop down menu, select SSRPM.
