  1. Multiple Schedules selectable from a dropdown menu

    Our school has multiple schedules (normal, 1/2, short, etc.). I'd like to create multiple schedules and save them. Then when we have a unique day (e.g. a half day), I can choose 'half day' from the menu, and it changes all of my schedules to that special schedule just for that day. Then the next day, it goes back to the regular (or default) schedule. Also have a single check box for breaks, days off, etc... so there are no sessions when there is no class. Thanks!

    • Provide a way to permanently delete users from GoGuardian's Manage Organization portal

      If users are accidentally uploaded, there should be a way to delete those users permanently.

        • I would like to be able to delete more than one student from a class at a time.

          It would be great to either: upload a csv of students to delete, delete all students (with a confirmation popup) or upload a csv of students to update the class (i.e. students already in the class stay, new ones are added and students in the class but not the csv are deleted).

            • Allow teachers to see who has locked a student's screen.

              Occasionally a student's screen will still be locked from a previous class, or a fellow teacher will see a student is off task in a different class and lock their screen. At the moment there doesn't seem to be a way to see who has locked the screen, and so there is no way to contact them to have it unlocked.

                • 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.

                  • Sync existing classes with Google Classroom

                    Allow for existing classrooms to be integrated with Google Classroom without having to create a new one and then archiving the old one.

                      • Global Scheduling

                        As an Admin, create global schedules that teachers can apply to classes, saving the steps required to schedule each class. When a class schedule changes due to an activity or assembly, the Admin can create the custom schedule and hand it down to all teachers/classes.

                        • CSV file export on Scenes

                          With the new Scenes, we can import from a CSV file, but how amazing would it be to also be able to export our block list to a CSV file, so we can share with other teachers?

                          Imagine how powerful it would be if multiple teachers compiled lists of distractor sites to help each other keep ahead of the jillions of distractors that the kids always seem to be able to come up with...

                            We need the ability to rearrange the order that classes appear on the drop-down list and on the classes list without deleting the entire class.

                              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.

                                I accidently created a class without importing from Google Classroom because I thought you could do that after. But how do you completely remove a class? It is just sitting in the archived section with nothing in it.

                                  • one time scheduling for the future

                                    My school has a rotating schedule so when I schedule a session for period 1 on Monday, it will work for this Monday but not next Monday because I will have a different class. I often have other teachers forgetting to turn off their scheduled time after it has been recorded so it messes with the students' ability to do work in another class. I propose that I can set a session to be scheduled for a certain one time occurrence in the future that would not be repeated again unless I schedule it again.

                                    • Automatically schedule Scenes.

                                      I'm exploring the Scenes function and really enjoying it. I would like to suggest that you add the ability to schedule them. For example, my class begins the day with 90 minutes of math, I'd like for the math scene to activate at 8:45 and end at 10:15. We do an hour of reading next, so the Reading scene should start at 10:15. It would be one less thing I have to do at the computer, which pulls me away from engaging with students. It would also better help establish class routines by automatically opening the site we use for…

                                      • A sound that would notify the teacher when a student has sent me a chat

                                        Im new to GoGuardian so maybe this already exists but I would love for there to be a sound (a ting or something) that would notify me when a student has sent a message. Often I may be working on something and I miss that a message is waiting for me. Thanks

                                          I would like to be able to work in an automatically applied scene to a scheduled session.
