    We need to add widgets.jotform.io  into kiosks around the world without going to each one and doing it. How can this be done remotely? Is there a registry entry or a file that could be pushed to make this happen?

    I'm not sure I understand. Why would you need our widgets in a kiosk?

    To do this you would need to execute a command. The command depends on which browser you are using.

    For example (with Chrome):

    start chrome "https://widgets.jotform.com"

    These are for the Benefits group some users do not have computers these Kiosks are set up only to give them access to benefits information. They are rolling out a new addition that allows them to take photographs of receipts for reimbursement etc. I need to know how to set the cameras to work with your forms in flash. We do not have IT resources in these locations so we have to do this remotely. It is Windows 10 and Edge on the computers.
    Best Wishes

    In that case the command is:

    start microsoft-edge:https://widgets.jotform.com


    You can use the take photo widget to capture images:

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/take_photo

    I don’t think you understand yet. I need to know how to add this to the Flash Player allow list so the camera will work.

    You would be best to use some remote management software. 

    For example:

    https://www.teamviewer.com/en/

     

    This would enable you to log into the remote machine and grant the permissions.

    When you add the take photo widget and load the form the first time the browser will ask for permission to use the camera. You only need to do this once.
