  1. Scrolling without the lock/unlock options moving

    Scrolling without the lock/unlock options tool bar moving. With larger classes I have to scroll down to check a specific students name and then scroll back up to the top to lock and send message or to unlock. Would be convenient if that whole tool bar would be separate from student screens and able to access at all times.

    Hello!

    First of all, this is an amazing suggestion, we took this into careful consideration when recently updating the commands feature (this includes lock/unlock). Now, the lock/unlock commands will stay locked to the bottom of the screen so that you don’t have to scroll as much to select students.

    I hope you didn’t have to scroll too much through this email :) Let me know if there’s anything else we can do for you!

  2. Lock screen message

    While locking a student's screen, the screen turns black with no message. There should be some sort of message telling the student the computer is being locked by the teacher.

  5. Student import by email address.

    There should be a way to import students into a class from a csv or other file.

    We’re good to go! You can now import students by CSV or by entering email addresses! Just click the “Add Students” button in your classroom’s student list to see the two new import options.

  6. Coteaching

    Allow multiple teachers to view a single session in coteaching situations.

  7. make it so that we can add a "scene" to the regularly scheduled sessions

    I created the scene so that it would block certain sites that my district has been unable to block. It would be great to have that scene automatically applied to the scheduled sessions for a class.

    Hey!

    This is Kevin, the Product Manager for GoGuardian Teacher. As some of the Teacher’s have mentioned, you can add a “default scene” to a scheduled class so that your scene is automatically applied to that class every time it starts.

    If you need any help with this, please feel free to email me: kbehan@goguardian.com.

    Thank you for the suggestion!

  9. Ability to Close Tabs from Timeline View

    It would be helpful to have the ability to close student tabs from the timeline view instead of having to switch to the screen view.

  10. Shared Exception Lists

    Can GoGuardian develop something for admins or teachers be able to share exceptions list? It is has become tougher for my teachers to make lists when using the Block mode to ensure all our applications are allowed through. It would be efficient and beneficial for all schools dealing with this. Thanks!

    Please continue to post amazing suggestions like this one.

    Hello,

    This is Kevin, the Product Manager for GoGuardian Teacher. You can make it so that a scene starts for a scheduled session by making it the “default scene” for a class. Click on the class “settings” icon for one of your classes and you’ll find the “default scene” located there (I’ve attached a screenshot as well).

    Please let me know if you need any help.

  13. Custom Time limits

    My classes are 85 minutes and 42 minutes.. It would be great to create custom time limits... We also in my area have many school delays due to weather. Custom times would be a great feature.

    Hello,

    This is Kevin, the Product Manager for GoGuardian Teacher. When starting a class session, you’re able to specify a custom end time before starting the session, I’ve attached a screenshot of where this feature is located.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

  14. Message signal

    Just like Google Hangouts, have a signal on the tab bar that a message has been sent from a student so that if I am working in another tab, I am aware that a student has sent me a message.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

  15. Give site teachers the ability to override other teachers' scenes.

    I have GoGuardian set up for each period at their regular schedule. When we have minimum days or rally schedules, the schedules are not aligned and sometimes this impacts other teachers since they cannot override it. Would love to have a eacher override feature!

    Hello!

    This is Kevin, the Product Manager for GoGuardian Teacher. When you have overlapping classes and another Teacher has applied a scene to students in your session, a yellow banner will pop-up at the top of your class that allows you to quickly remove their scene or apply yours.

    Thank you for the suggestion!

  16. In addition to chat feature, add ability to send a broadcast message to entire class.

    Since many of my students are using Khan Academy and other sites with video lectures requiring head phones, being able to broadcast a message that shows up on the screens of everyone in the class would be helpful

    Hello!

    This is Kevin, the Product Manager for GoGuardian Teacher. As Tyler mentioned in the comments, you are able to go to the “Students” tab on a classroom and click the “Remove” button. If you are using a Google Classroom or a Clever or Classlink classroom, you’ll need to remove the student from their website and then it will be removed from GoGuardian.

    Please feel free to email me if you need help (kbehan@goguardian.com).

  19. Have a lock button on each student's icon for easy lock-down and auto unlock

    Also have a temporary lock option- so that way you don't have to go back and unlock it. Maybe it locks for 15 sec. with your message and then it automatically unlocks.

  20. Add the ability of a teacher to control student tab settings

    I have students that have figured out how to change their settings on their device to where it will ask them if they want to close a tab. When I close them out of a game or website they should not be on they are asked for permission to close. As a result, they select no and are able to continue with that tab. Can teachers have a way to control this setting on their device?

    We recently pushed an update that should fix this issue. The new version will continually attempt to close the tab until we confirm it is closed. If the student clicks “no”, it will reattempt every couple seconds until the student accepts.
