NOTE: All instructions need to be done by the highest level administrator of the G Suite domain.

STEP 1: Sign in to your school or district's G Suite admin console and select Marketplace apps.

STEP 2: Select Add services to your domain.

STEP 3: Search for Bark and select the resulting marketplace app seen below:

STEP 4: Click the Domain Install button at the top.
NOTE: It needs to be installed on the whole domain for the app to have the proper permissions needed to monitor the student accounts. Rest assured, it will not monitor any organizational units until you are later prompted by Bark to turn on monitoring for specific organizational units.

STEP 5: Click the Continue button at the bottom.


STEP 6: Accept the permissions by checking the "I agree..." checkbox and clicking the Accept button at the bottom.

STEP 7: Click the Done button at the bottom.

STEP 8: Find Bark in your Marketplace Apps in the Admin Console and select the Launch app button on the top right.
NOTE: Make sure it has "ON for everyone" permissions on this page. Rest assured, it will not monitor any organizational units until you are later prompted by Bark to turn on monitoring for specific organizational units.

STEP 9: Sign in to your administrator account. This needs to be the highest level permissions administrator account for your domain.

  • If you run into an error claiming you don't have permissions, try clicking on the link displayed in the Bark G Suite app seen below:
  • Then, log in with the highest level permissions administrator account for your domain.


STEP 10: Proceed through the onboarding prompts. You can always change the settings presented during onboarding at a later time.

STEP 11: After onboarding is complete, you may see a message about Bark syncing. After the sync completes, you will see the Bark for Schools administrator dashboard.

Reference these guides should you need to adjust settings for your Bark account!

Trouble viewing settings or inviting reviewers?

If you have trouble viewing the settings page or inviting other admins, it's likely because we don't have the proper permissions to access the directory API.
