Forcing a Chrome homepage on Macs

Nick McSpadden has a great (and thorough) write-up on Deploying and Managing Google Chrome: The Rough Guide, and his recommendation is to have some initial Master Preferences that set a default, which can be overriden.

In some cases, though (for example, we have some machines that will be used for Hour of Code next week that will be set to as the homepage), you may want to force the homepage, in which case a profile may be the way to do it. There’s a great template for a Chrome profile on JAMF Nation. Just paste that into a text file, edit it, and then save it with a .mobileconfig extension, and then you can distribute the .mobileconfig using Munki or ARD.
