  1. "Enable chat" feature

    I would like to suggest that teachers can still see messages that students sent through the chat feature,even after the student goes offline.

  2. include an option to send an individual message to a student that is off task from the admin account.

    Given the fact that the vast majority of the country is embarking on Remote Learning due to the COVID 19 outbreak, it would be incredibly helpful for admin to be able to send out messages to students that are off task or a gentle reminder that we can see everything they are doing.

  3. A feature that notices the teacher there is a chat from the student. That way we don't always have to be at the computer.

    During this time of teaching from home, I wish there was a way to hear there is a chat from a student. Especially if when I have multiple sessions open at a time. Without going to look at each session, I have no idea when I have a message from a student.

  4. allow us to make a note about any student even without an actual alert.

    We would like to document a student's inappropriate use of technology even if the use didn't trigger an alert. (An example is using Pinterest to chat with other students.) We like to track the number of times we deal with a particular student over technology issues, which is almost always triggered by an alert, but when it's not, we have to make a note somewhere else.

  5. Allow admins to re-categorize sites.

    Here is an example - a student is attempting to access a site at http://www.3dtuning.com/en-US/ to create a car design and GG is categorizing it as humor.

  6. I would like to see a way to block youtube within the Google Apps.

    Youtube is blocked if students attempt to visit Youtube's site, but they have discovered that they are able a Google App, such as Google Slides and then insert any Youtube video they want via the insert video feature (including words I have blocked by keyword - ****, music videos, violence). Students then watch these videos in their presentations and then delete them. By deleting them, they only show as a flag on my go guardian profile and I am unable to determine the exact videos they are viewing.

  7. Add facility to delete student data

    We had one cybersecurity-conscious parent opt his child out of data GG's collection. The only way to accomplish this (per support's instructions) was to place the student's user account in an OU that blocks installation of the GG extensions; GG support the deletes accumulated data. Obviously, this means that the student's device cannot be monitored via class sessions, although the parent was OK with monitoring/management part, just not the data collection part.

    Though hoping that this doesn't become a common sort of parent request, it would be nice, a la a special OU (like for stolen devices), to automate the…

  8. Add a database of students and allow admins to add to classes

    If I could add students from a "pool" it would be easier. Maybe you could use our OU and just allow us to pull students from there. I am new to this product o maybe it already exists.

  9. Reporting of Screenshots

    Ability to get reporting on students taking screenshots on Chromebooks. We have screenshots globally allowed because it usually is used for educational purposes. There have been some recent issues with teachers complaining about kids taking screenshots and cheating on exams by showing other students exam questions. Typically, the student personal cell phones are taken during exams (so they cannot use them for screenshots/cheating).

  10. Send more than 10 email alerts per day. It currently stops sending emails at 10.

    Currently, GoGuardian stops sending email alert notifications at 10. Please make this a configurable setting. We want to increase the maximum number so that we don't miss any.

  11. Single Student window in Classroom too wide to close in non-full screen view

    Put a close button on the left side of the student screen.
    When viewing a single student pop-up in classroom in Half screen width the close button is off the tab and require the teacher to open to full screen to close window.
    Teachers like to have GoGuardian in half screen and presentation on other with notes.

  12. Add whitelist options in the Penalty Box for blocks of sites, similar to how it's available in Scenes.

    We have students using Edgenuity, Canvas and a load of other sites. We unfortunately have to use the Penalty Box for several students and they need access to those sites and all the accompanying sites within. The Scenes section has functionality to import blocks of URLs to whitelist (Pearson, Houghton-Mifflin, etc.). Adding that functionality to the Penalty Box would be a blessing and save a ton of time manually entering URLs.

  13. Block for Teachers and student access

    Next to each user, place a check and an X to allow the admin the ability to block or unblock account. Teachers have this ability, and the admin should also have this ability. Also, if the check and X box could be colored to indicate current status (green fill for the check and red fill for the X) would be very helpful

  14. Bulk Upload extensions for Block/Allow

    We are switching to Block All except Allow, but have 100+ Apps/Extensions that will be allowed. It would be nice to be able to upload them instead of entering them 1 at a time. (In the meantime I will probably use a web auto-mator to do all the repetitive clicks it will take)

  15. Allow teachers to exclude students who are OFFLINE. This is important when a student then goes online but is prevented from doing so.

  16. allow notes to be added anywhere you can Allow or Block

    Add the ability to place a note or comment next to a blocked or allowed URL that you've added to any of multiple areas.

    Some locations this would be useful:

    Filtering > Configuration > [policy] > Website URLs
    Filtering > Configuration > [policy] > Youtube > Channels
    Filtering > Configuration > [policy] > Youtube > Videos
    Filtering > Configuration > [policy] > Apps & Extensions
    Penalty Box > Allowed Websites

    Essentially, give us the ability to put in a note or comment so that other admins can see why that item was put in. Sometimes it isn't clear just from…

  17. Smart ALert Date Rang

    There should be a date filter for the smart alerts page so you dont have to hit "Load more" 400 times. After a certain quantity of smart alerts, the page stops responding.

  19. Allow lower percentage rates

    I would like to see if there is a way where we could have smart alerts email at percentages lower than %50. While I trust the software, It would be nice to be able to have additional granular settings on percentage sure that the site they are visiting is explicit.

  20. Allow users assigned to a Smart Alert to mark it resolved

    We are assigning Smart Alerts to people who are actually in the building the student attends and thus familiar with them. These people are set as Monitor Only, which prevents them from marking the alerts that have been assigned to them as resolved. We do not want to give them further access as that would allow them to mess with our filters.
