Whatfix enables you to create a landing page for your Extension deployment to individuals for Chrome and Firefox extensions. This can be used when you cannot mass deploy extensions to your users.

Share the landing page URL with your users and they can install the extension by visiting the page and following the instructions.

To get a landing page for your extension, get in touch with your Whatfix Account Manager or contact Whatfix Support at [email protected].

Note

If your users visit the landing page after installing the extension, they are redirected to your application URL. Contact your Whatfix Account Manager to enable this.

On the sample page above, you can edit the banner image, title, description, button name, and the URL to which your users have to be redirected after installing the extension.
