- IT Groups and Administrators
Google Chrome 76 and above now block Adobe Flash by default on all websites. You can enable Flash, but you'll need to allow flash for each new website and browser session.
An IT admin can create a policy to whitelist Workiva by referring to the following documentation on using PluginsAllowedForUrls: Chromium Policy List Entry. This whitelist should cover the [*.]wdesk.com URL.
Some group policy changes in Google Chrome may require changes to allow Workiva. For more details on these policy changes, you can view Chrome Group Policy Changes.
Manage Chrome Policies
We recommend IT groups use the following Google Chrome policies:
To grant users access to Workiva, while preventing the use of Flash in other applications, set following policies:
- Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\DefaultPluginsSetting = 1 or 3 (integer)
- Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\PluginsAllowedForUrls\1 = https://[*.]wdesk.com (string)
Note: Additional values may be added to this policy, but the above entry must be present.
You can find full descriptions of each Chrome policy is available from Google:

Plans to Remove Flash
Our development team is working toward removing the use of Adobe Flash technology by Workiva. Our next generation technology will provide an enhanced experience across all core Workiva document types. Spreadsheets and Controls Management already use the next generation technology.
