Managing the Playbooks Chrome Extension

How to open or close, resize, and move the Playbooks extension

Playbooks operates in its own Google Chrome window. It behaves like a normal window and is only opened or closed, resized, and moved when that specific window is selected.

Opening Playbooks

Playbooks opens in its own web browser when the Playbooks icon is selected. When you open Playbooks, your CRM resizes so Playbooks opens on the right-hand side of the CRM browser without covering it. Since it opens in its own browser, Playbooks and CRM windows can stay side by side or overlap.

To Open Playbooks

  1. Find the Playbooks icon on the right-hand side of your CRM window.
  2. Click on the Playbooks icon.
Note: The Playbooks icon will only be visible on your CRM or another designated web page.
