    • Enable us to organize the classes by time of day or class period instead of just organizing them alphabetically

      Currently classes are organized alphabetically. It would be of greater use to organize them by class period or time of day.

      • Send a PM

        I want to be able to send my students private messages straight to their screen (and be able to turn on/off their ability to reply). (Like if they were on a website they shouldn't be or if they were not participating)

        That was I can "get on" to a student from my computer without walking over to them and saying something....sometimes this causes them to react publicly because their neighbors now know they are in trouble.

        • Have a select none button

          When in screens view, in addition to a select all option have a select none option so that you can easily deselect students.

          • Allow ghosting

            I would love to be able to take over my students computer when I am on their screen.

            • In the organization settings, enable blocking of certain OUs from being added as students in the Teacher.

              The current settings require individuals to be added to the do not allow teachers to monitor this email. OU settings would allow automation.

              • One screen view of whole class period on timeline

                A one screen view of a whole class period's timeline would make it easier for teachers to check for students whose use was problematic. Currently, I have to scroll through the class several times to get to the whole period because I can see only 10 or 15 minutes at a time.

                • do not make the chat bubble visible on all student profiles once the teacher enables it.

                  Once students see that the chat has been enabled they get distracted. I would only like it to be noticeable if I send them a chat.

                    • 15 minute increments on the GoGuardian for Teachers settings portion for disabling and enabling sessions.

                      It would be helpful if we were able to choose time periods when sessions can be created in 15 minute increments. Our community has several vocal people that are concerned about the school snooping on the students outside of school time. Our school hours start and stop outside of the :30 or :00 times. It would be closer to our times if I could set them to :15 and :45.

                      • Feedback when the number of students in the Google Classroom has changed

                        This way I know a student has unrolled from the classroom to hide his/her activity. I know I can use emails instead, but this is tedious right now.

                            • Calendar option for pre-selected dates.

                              I think there should be a way that we as teachers can pre-select days where we will not be in school. As it sits right now teachers have to go in and manually cancel each session on our days off.

                              • Customized Exceptions List By School/District

                                It would be useful for school districts to be able to edit the exceptions list and customize it for their schools/district. This way teachers could easily add sites to their unblocked list in their scenes, like all the testing sites for example (MAP, PARCC, STAR, ACCESS, etc.) This would help resolve the issue of conflicts between teachers' scheduled sessions, and testing days for students.

                                  I think it would be really helpful if I could message another teacher at my school, even if they're in another class.

                                  • Allow me to create student groups to be able to easily start a session for just a group of students

                                    All of my Algebra students share a single Google Classroom. However, I only want to start a session for the ones that are in the same period. It would be nice to have a way to easily select Period 4 students all at one time.

                                      Enable teachers to control student computer, for example the mouse to demonstrate how to do something.

                                      I like that I can push a website to student computers but it would be great if I could screencast my screen to theirs.

                                      It would be great if there was a button to send an individual a chat message while viewing their screen instead of having to find them in the list.
