How can we improve GoGuardian Teacher?

Parent portal: For parents to see what their child is doing on their Chromebook

Very similar to how a teacher sees the student activity, it would be nice if parents had this option to see what their child is doing on the Chromebooks.

        Sounds like a great option for schools to choose to implement as they see fit. I know there are other apps that do this. It would be great if GoGuardian decided to make this part of their repertoire of features.

        I am a little surprised this is still showing as only "Under Review", especially when other companies like Securely are offering it. Is there an update on this request from the engineers?

        How long does this need to be under review? This is a needed feature for our families. My children attend another school district and have Securly. I receive a report each week which tells me the sites my children have visited. Go Guardian needs this feature. It would help teachers out immensely.

        Get this done. Parents should have control over what their minor aged children are doing online and therefore have the ability to keep them encouraged and accountable for their schoolwork.

        Securly and Lightspeed Relay both offer features that allow parents some control or monitoring or support, I'm very surprised to find that GoGuardian doesn't already have something. As someone helping prepare for a new one to one initiative at my district, this definitely factors into decisions about a filtering solution.

        taking way too long to implement this request feature... makes users not want to submit ideas. What is the vote threshold to make this happen?

        This is an excellent idea, but it is not enough. I would like for us, the school to stay out of the parenting business, except when the students are in school. So yes, it would definitely be a step in the right direction for parents to be able to get a report (so that at least there is a better way to keep kids accountable instead of just blocking everything, which doesn't teach any self-regulation), but if it means that parents then come to me to make policy changes for specific students, that is problematic. I would like parents to be able to make their own policies for their child's internet access and some kids definitely need more restrictions and supervision than others.

        With all the requests for this, why have you been reviewing it for two years without an answer?

        Hi there,

        Has there been any progress made on this feature?

        It is really handy for parents.

        Thank you

        I get requests every summer for the best way for parents to manage their children's chromebook usage while they are away from school and I hate pointing them to some other web filter or management tool (there aren't many option for chromebooks...) when we are already paying for GoGuardian on their child's device. Some type of parent portal would be very nice. Integration with Blackbaud's onCampus application would be even nicer since all the parent-to-student connections are already in place!

        Parents definitely need to be automatically looped in to their students online use. This feature is definitely needed.
