  1. GoGuardian Blocks Sites Based on Intermediate Links

    This program is completely inadequate as a blocking software as it stops the loading of allowed sites in block mode. The software appears to look at every "intermediate link" appears as the browser navigates to the new link.

    It is just awful...

    • Classroom.google.com & google sites should be a part of the default Google Docs quick lists in scenes, or there should be quick lists 4 them

      Teachers don't realize that classroom & sites aren't included in the Google Docs quicklist!

      • Create a watch list for students who need "extra attention"

        I have some students who need more looking after than others. Maybe there could be a way for me to "favorite" them or put them on a watch list. WIth this they would always be at the top of my class, maybe their box color is different. And/or whenever they google/search something I am notified.

        • After giving students a command, the program automatically "unclicks" that student.

          After I click on a student, or student, and give them a command, the program should unclick that student's name automatically. I hate that I have to go back and unclick their name before giving another command.

          • Notifications!

            It would be awesome if the messages could have an audible ding. Also, it would be fantastic if a visual number or name flashed in the tab, like messenger. That way, if the teacher had a different tab open you could see the message.

              • Change colors on session summary e-mail chart

                In the e-mailed Session Summary Report, do not make the color for the largest piece of the pie chart white. It is very hard to see and interpret the diagram at a glance.

                  • Subtle/silent redirection

                    add a subtle "bing" or flash to grab the students attention to get them back on task/the right website. I find the messaging to be more of a distraction.

                    • Need feature to set time limits on URLs or subdomain URLs

                      In general we should be able to set a time limit on any URL or subdomain URL. This should be available as a global policy, classroom policy, or at the individual student level.

                      At it's most basic implementation this feature should be a time limit specified in minutes per day. For example, mathblaster.com/spacegame can only be played for 15 minutes per day.

                      A more advanced implementation would allow a cumulative calculation over say a week or some arbitrary period.

                      Example: Mathblaster can only be played for 1 hour over the course of a 5 day period.

                      This would encourage some…

                        I should be able to ban certain websites during the session I have for the students to ensure they are not wandering or getting information from the wrong locations.

                        • It came to my attention that searches such as "shootings" do not come up as explicit content. Can this be added?

                          Anything violent in nature should be in the category of explicit so administrators can be immediately notified. School shootings are far too common and I am astounded that GoGuardian doesn't already have this as part of their explicit category.

                            • chat options

                              I would love to be able to chat with particular students in GoGuardian instead of opening up the chat for all my students. As soon as I enable the chat feature, students want to chat and say hi and it's distracting for both me and them.

                                  • Option to make an open tab the current tab.

                                    Similar to the option to close tabs, I'd like to see an option to make a specific tab the "current' tab, that way I don't have to close tabs that are generally okay to get them to focus on the tab they need to be focused on.

                                      There should be a way to delete inactive emails in GoGuardian. Inactive emails from students that have left or dropped out. There should be a way to suspend and delete them. Inactive accounts take up space when your searching for someone in search box.

                                      • Students checking when teachers are on GoGuardian

                                        Please disable a feature that allows students to see when teachers are on GoGuardian checking students' screens. My students are more likely to predict when I am mostly able to check their screens, which makes my supervision less effective.

                                        • Keep "Custom End Time" setting

                                          It would be great to set one or two "Custom End Times" that you can select from that drop-down list, instead of having to enter it manually each time. It could be set up that once you put in a custom end time, it stays associated with your account. Alternatively, perhaps each school account could have their own end times (for instance, we'd have 2:15 and 3:15, because those are our end-of-day dismissal times) in that dropdown menu in school accounts.
