Elizabeth I don't think it is a matter of being limiting, but pushing an
app/extension that is not needed by all (think Special Education or other
supports) or that have that splash screen that says a new app/extension has
been installed.  Sometimes a reduction of clutter and distractions is
desirable.

A free app that is a launchpad to a managed app that will only be used by a
few students...  But yes, it looks like pushing it out to ALL Students may
be necessary for this small group of students.  @Nancy - free app requested
for limited use, not all Students.

Thanks for your input.
