GoGuardian Admin

  1. Out of School mode no policy set warning

    Add a big warning if you enable 'Out Of School' mode, but don't define any policies for it. I don't want students unfiltered.
    And change the wording so the filtering page matches 'Out of School' mode, instead of saying 'At Home'. The wording doesn't match, even though they mean the same thing (currently: Scheduling page: Out of School; Filtering page: At Home)

  2. Admin Tab Limit by OU or Policy

    I am look for the ability, in Admin, to set a max open tab limit either by OU or by policy. Teachers have the ability in the Teacher console, but we need the ability to enforce a max limit for those sessions that did not have a limit set or for students that are not currently in a classroom session.

  3. Bypass codes should expire after the time limit assigned.

    They should not remain active until removed or deleted by the admin from system. This way students who get a hold of the codes are not able to reuse them after the time set.

  5. When the URL is a redirected URL, the simulator doesn't follow the redirection. (ex vocab.com redirects to vocabulary.com)

    When the URL is a redirected URL, the simulator doesn't follow the redirection. For example, vocab.com redirects to vocabulary.com. The simulator shows that VOCAB.COM is whitelisted, but when the student types in the URL, it's redirected to VOCABULARY.COM, which then gets blocked. The Admin needs to add the final destination, in this case, VOCABULARY.COM, to the whitelist. This just adds more downtime to everyone while the admin trys to troubleshoot why it's not working for the student.

  7. limited the number of youtube vists per day

    would like the ability to limit the number of access to youtube a student can have per day. This would force them to self monitor their impulses

  8. Smart Filter Category based on what other schools block

    GoGuardian has a LOT of schools using it.
    So why not have a category called "Blocked by other schools"??

    Behind the scenes, GoGuardian simply aggregates the blocked sites across all schools in its database once a day and uses that data to populate the sites in the category. These are URLs that have been explicitly set to "Block" within schools' policies.

    The algorithm would go something like this:


    1. Count how many schools have at least one explicitly blocked URL.

    2. Aggregate explicitly blocked URLs for all schools. For each URL, it gets one point for each school it occurs at.

    3. Filter…

  9. Advanced Filters / Regular Expressions

    Anyone that knows regular expressions knows how invaluable they are for pattern matching (https://regex101.com/)

    The problem is that they aren't suitable at all for teachers to use - and therefore don't belong in GoGuardian's simple interface that teachers use to allow or block sites. I think the wildcard is as complicated as we want to go on that screen.

    Therefore, I'd suggest that the GoGuardian Admin (maybe power users too) have a screen in the settings called "Advanced Filters".

    In this screen, you can define filters that use regular expressions (and potentially other methods) to define a filter.

  10. Smart Penalty Box - if % of OU is accessing site, penalty box can

    I would like to see a smarter penalty box.

    In a typical classroom, the teacher will give the assignment, and the students will go and search for the material, and then go to specific sites to gather it.

    The kids that have problems staying on task are generally less than 20% of the class (1-5 students in a class of 22) ..

    So if those kids are in the penalty box, the teacher has to constantly allow sites so they can do their schoolwork. Eventually the teacher just gives up, and removes them from the penalty box. The kid then…

  11. Ability for classroom teachers to enter a temporary link for the students in their classroom.

    Allow teachers in teacher mode to enter a temporary link to a site for the class they are teaching. They could select the duration of the link's accessibility, for example, 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week. This way the link wouldn't be permanently accessible network-wide, and it would allow more teacher control.

  12. Can we adjust "At Home" hours by grade level?

    Can we adjust "At Home" hours by OU instead of it being a global policy? We believe our middle school and high school students will have needs to be online later at night due to extra curricular activities, and we would like to be able to lock down our elementary students earlier. Thanks

  13. exceptions on users that can't be controlled/viewed (School Staff/Admin) on GoGuardian be chosen by OUs instead of a manual process

    Principals and teachers can be viewed by other teachers in GoGuardian Teacher unless they are manually entered or uploaded by CSV. With turn over, users have to be updated in GoGuardian instead of automatically modified by an OU they are in. If exceptions could be made by OU instead of manually entering the users it would require less effort.

  15. Banner ad blocking

    Frequently the banner ads that pop up on some websites are risque or inappropriate at best. It would be great if GG could block out those ads, while allowing the actual content to come through

  16. Ability to block hashtags

    Given the nearly universal use of hashtags across social media platforms, it would be beneficial to be able to block specific hashtags related to adult content.

  17. Move the classic view of Google Access / Flagged activity items over to 2.0

    Currently the https://goguardian.com/account/google reporting is clunky when trying to pull a lot of records and moving this and the flags into 2.0 would be very helpful. Having to wait for CVS output be mailed can be questionable if the email never comes, a direct download would be much more efficient for our end user needs. Also better ways to sort the data then is available in classic view. Example, sort by day in the review window, or by student for a quick view without the need to dump data out.

  18. Direct IP is currently all on / or all off, expansion of this feature by OU or by subnets in the client or extension is optimal..

    Currently when enabling the blocking of direct IP accesses it drastically limits our Administration Monitoring and management once enabled. The ability to enable by OU / or by netowrk subnet (IP) basis in the extension parameters would be optimal. Currently when we enabled this feature our Solarwinds Monitoring Server it is blocked from Pinging, and grabbing SNMP Traps \ SysLog traps from all remote devices. Whitelisting everything independently is out of the question. This also blocks are technical staff remotely managing devices using RDP even when doing so over DNS and IP based. This also affects VPN on staff machines…

  19. Expand the Dashboard Views of beyond top websites when click on and shows all sites accessed by counts and not limit to the top only.

    Current Dashboard Top sites details. Would be nice to be able to expand the top sites and see the list of all sites visited. Althing top sites are the allowed sites, it would be of benefit to see what other sites are being accessed.
