  1. Students getting around blocked youtube videos

    Students are getting to youtube video's that are blocked by refreshing the page and clicking the x to stop loading the page. This not only allows them to see the video but also GoGuardian does not even record that the video was watched. Major issue that really needs to be resolved as soon as possible.

    • Screenshot image saving

      I need to send the screenshot to admin. But when I save it, it only saves the student screen. I need the student name to be included in the image that is saved and sent.

          • Add website categories for organizations such as charities, NGOs, political groups etc.

            Create a new Website Category for organization websites such as charities, NGOs, political groups etc. There currently is no good place to categorize sites from the Red Cross, political parties, CETPA etc. Leaving them uncategorized implies they have not been vetted and does not allow the use of strict categorization.

              • Be able to attach students accounts using their email address. The students have multiple accounts with changing their name w. same emails

                Students are logging into chrome with a different name associated to their student id email. Than GoGuardian is not able to associate the correct student account and it appears the student is offline when in fact they are on the Chromebook on sites not related to class.

                • Student Browsing Report- When viewing a student's browsing history, it would be helpful to see a more detailed report

                  For example, when students are using Google to search something, the only thing that shows up on their report is Google. The only way I can see what they searched is to open the tab. It would be helpful if we could see their search from the report.

                  • It would be nice if students who sign on when a session is currently running were automatically visible in the session once added.

                    It would be nice if students who sign on when a session is currently running were automatically visible in the session once added as students. Currently, the only work-around I have found is to end the current session and create a new session after the new student has logged in. That student then - and only then - becomes visible in TimeLines and Screens.

                    • Camera open

                      When a student turns on or opens their camera on their chromebook teachers cannot see what they are doing. Please fix this, thank you!

                      • Custom Block List reporting

                        In the filtering activity, it would be amazing to add the following change, right now if they are blocked for *vpn* it would just show up as:

                        custom block list

                        would be great to show up as

                        custom block list ( vpn )

                        So we knew why, sometimes I get an very large character string and I know its one of the sets of letters that are being blocked but I don't know which ones. This would help me from having to look for maybe a 3 letter combo is a set of 50 to 100 characters,

                        • Allow teacher to monitor apps that the student have open, including the ability to close, limit, and see them on the screen/timeline.

                          Students download apps such as 2048 and are able to play them even though I have blocked them to one site on one tab. I can't see it on my teacher screen but I can see it on their screen. It is very frustrating because I don't have any physical documentation that I can show to parents.

                            • Lock students before logged in

                              It would be great to be able to lock the screens of students before they even log into their computers. That way, I could prevent them from using their computers when they have no valid reason to use them. However, I cannot select a student to lock their screens until the students themselves log into their computers.

                              • Offer a record of individual student's computer use.

                                I would love to be able to look up one student and to see his/her timelines for a given period. This way, when I need to confirm for a parent that students are on task, I can look up just that student instead of having to look for that student on a bunch of different days

                                • Give admins permission to see active sessions by teacher

                                  We are having trouble with teachers not archiving auto start sessions when classes change each quarter. This causes students that are no longer in those classes to not be able to get to the sites they need in a new class. We have to look at the students prior schedule and contact each teacher to see which one has the auto start session.

                                    • Make it available for me to view what students were working on previously in the day, with out a session having to be made.

                                      I had a sub today and was unable to create a session before I left. In addition, I did not have access to a computer at the time my class was in session. Hindsight, I wish I could view what they were working on while I was gone, without having to have a session created.
