Smart Agent FAQs

After the release of our new Smart Agents, we’ve received the following frequently asked questions from Relay users:

Do I have to uninstall User Agent from my devices?

That depends…

If you are running Rockets and Relay, no. Keep the User Agent installed on your device(s).

If you are only running Relay, yes. Uninstall User Agents from your device before installing the Smart Agent.

How do I install the client settings on my computers for Relay?

Relay’s download package is unique to your organization, therefore, deploying custom files is not necessary for Smart Agents.

Refer to our Getting Started with Relay documentation (Step 3) for deploying your organization’s Relay package.

How do I push the extension/settings to my Chromebooks?

Refer to our Getting Started with Relay guide for deploying the Relay extension to Chromebooks.

Do I have to set anything up in Relay as far as user groups?

Sync your Student Information System (Groups and Users) directory with Relay before deploying to your devices. Refer to our documentation for syncing your database with Relay:
