  1. 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…

  2. 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

  3. Scrolling timeline on the timelines screen

    Actually have the timeline scroll down as you move down your student list so you don't have to go up to the top of the page to move the time.

  4. Add the ability to change Scenes on a individual student basis

    I do love using Scenes. When giving an online test (we use EADMS), I set up scenes to open the tab to the EADMS student login page. I don't allow any other pages. It is a great feature.

    My only wish is that I could selectively remove the restrictive scene from individual students once they finish the test. A lot of my students finish early and want to utilize the remaining class time to work on other homework. I end up removing the screen once a handful of students have finished the test and monitoring the students who are still…

  6. Allow the ability to rearrange the order of classes

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. Chat History

    It would be so helpful to be able to review a conversation held with a student during a session through the chat feature. Maybe a "Chat Log" for each session and/or a "Chat History" for each student. I was so busy chatting with multiple students, sometimes I would like to make sure I didn't miss a message or to revisit a specific message from a student. Unfortunately, once the session ends, all of the chat history disappears immediately. Not cool GoGuardian!!!!

  10. Shared Scenes Between Co-teachers

    I work in our district's alternative education program and we have four teachers that utilize the same classroom in GoGuardian. I created scenes for our classroom but my fellow teachers do not have access to modify the scenes I created. Given the ever evolving group of students within our classroom, providing access to scenes created by one of the co-teachers to all of the teachers would greatly help our utilization of GoGuardian within our classroom.

  11. 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!

  12. allow teachers to see extensions in use.

    Extensions do not show up in the teacher view, and many of the games are extensions.

  13. Allow teachers to view all activity on students screen.

    Students are able to use Chrome extensions for chatting that are not view-able through go-guardian. Make it possible to view all activity or freeze one screen at a time if we suspect activity.

  14. From the timeline, can we see a screenshot?

    It would be great if the timeline view offered a screen shot so I can see exactly what the student was doing after the session.

    planned  ·  Tyler Shaddix responded

    Currently this is a manual process by taking a “snapshot” in the screens view. In the future we’d like to make this more automatic by overlaying snapshots on the timeline and taking snapshots automatically when certain behaviour occurs

  15. Bulk import classes and class lists

    As a domain admin, it would be helpful to be able to upload a list of classes (2 columns: Class Name, Teacher Email) and then bulk upload a list of students in those classes (Student Email, Class Name). That would save our teachers a lot work and make it much more likely they would actually use this product.

  16. Allow teachers to add specific scenes to individual students, limiting the need for multiple classes

    Allowing teachers to add certain scenes to individual students would give the teacher the ability to limit tabs on problematic students without restricting students who work daily on assignments. The teacher would be able to differentiate students assignments and tabs available for individual needs.

  17. Allow us to delete archived classes and past sessions.

    Allow us to delete archived classes after we no longer need them. They add up after awhile!

  18. 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.

  19. Update Scenes to include the ability to block Chrome apps and extensions.

    With the ability to set a scene for teachers, it would greatly improve assessment data if Scenes would also block Google apps and extensions.
