GoGuardian Admin

  1. provide the option to bulk import URLs into policies.

    The transition into Admin 2.0 has not been smooth in terms of whitelisting new resources for our students to view, as well as how links are clumped together in policies.

    It would be great to do a mass import of all links we plan for students to use for the school year. Exporting URLs from policies would also be good for when we have to do a yearly cleanup of our lists.

  2. Create a live view in Admin for online students similar to what Teachers can see.

    It would be great if Admins had the ability to view screenshots of student that are online just like in GoGuardian Teacher. We have the problem of students using a VPN on their phone and then connecting their Chromebooks to their phone. They can then access blocked sites on their Chromebook and it is not recorded anywhere in Admin or in our other content filter. Screenshots of the device (live view) should still show us what the students are doing even if it isn't getting recorded anywhere else. Then if we had to option to save screenshots or email them…

  3. "Favorites" list of students to watch

    We have a student we need to monitor closely. It would be nice to have a "Favorites" section where I can see a list of kids that are on a watch list and quickly pull up all of their history.

  4. Allow Admins to pull list of apps/ext's that have Web View Capabilites

    GoGuardian flags apps/ext's that have web view capabilities. It would be nice if we could search (or even set up alerts for) installed apps/ext's with web view capabilities on our domains.

  5. Theft Recovery Reporting in 2.0

    Please bring back the feature to export Theft Reports. Maybe you could do it the same way you do Smart Alert reports. This was in Theft Recovery 1.0, but for some reason was removed.

    When I try to get a theft report to our local police department, it is very difficult to try to get them screenshots and tracking information when I have to pull each screenshot up individually and save each one.

  6. Create API

    Allow administrators to query GoGuardian using a RESTful API for specific data that could be leveraged in other applications. I believe the GET request would only be needed.

    EXAMPLE: Correlate data from time spent on math.xyz to actual test scores stored in our data warehouse.

    EXAMPLE: Integrate stolen device information with our asset management system.

  7. Desirable Feature --- YouTube Whitelisting

    Would be lovely if a YouTube playlist could be whitelisted instead of needing to individually whitelist each video in it.

  8. Flag inappropriate text within documents.

    Send a email to administrators to alert them of which student(s) are involved. Use the existing flag list to tag documents with inappropriate language, etc.

  9. Enable filtering of devices in theft recovery

    Theft recovery does not provide or allow filtering of lost/stolen devices. As a school district, we require filtering on all of our devices. When a device is reported as lost/stolen, if a student recovers the device, they will have access to filtered content. Filtering needs to be an option in theft recovery, especially since user based filtering is no longer an option on these devices.

  10. make it so we can block Google Images while still allowing students to use Google to search for information.

    I wish there was a way to block Google image searches while still allowing students to use Google to search for information. There are so many trashy images out there..... :(

  11. allow for filtering on devices in kiosk mode.

    I'd like to maintain GoGuardian filtering on devices while they are in kiosk mode. For example, if we have a cart of Chromebooks for lower grade students (who aren't 1-to-1), I'd like for them to open up to a web browser with filtering. I know I could create a generic account and publicly post the password, but it would be best to simply have the Chromebooks just work.

  12. Create a way to freeze the browser while students are taking a test.

    Our students use Google Forms to take tests. Right now, they could open another browser to look up the answer. It would be nice if the teacher could freeze it so that they can't leave the test screen.

    under review  ·  cody responded

    Thanks for requesting the ability to be able to freeze the browser when students are taking a test. This currently isn’t a priority in the Admin product, but is a feature in GoGuardian Teacher. Please email me at cody@goguardian.com if you need more info!

  13. "Add to Filter" Option in Smart Alert Behavior Details Screen

    Currently, to block a site that has triggered a Smart Alert, you have to exit the behavior screen, go to the filter and manually add the site to the blacklist. I am requesting that an option to add the site to a filter list directly from the Smart Alert Behavior Details page. Perhaps right below the "CATEGORY" Is this Explicit or Self-Harm field.

  15. Report on Individual Online Activity

    I would love to be able to download reports that would show each students breakdown of online activity over an interval of time. For example, how much time did student x spend on google.docs, Khanacademy, and Youtube over the last week, month, year etc.

    As the data scientist at my district I am looking to find relationships between this data and individual achievement

  16. Block Youtube searches with keywords

    Allow the Youtube Blacklist keywords to block searches with the keywords. That way I don't have students searching for inappropriate material and seeing 100's of thumbnails of inappropriate material.

  17. Create Blacklist cleanup

    When the backlist gets overloaded with sites, it gets kinda overwhelming. If there could be a way to organize the list (either by category, alphabetically, or by date added) that would be great.

  18. penalty box

    Can you please add the following to the penalty box
    1, can you add a notes section
    Since we have more than one person using GG having the ability to know why someone was placed in the box is valuable.
    2, Can you add the date that a student was placed into the penalty box
    3, Progressive discipline tracker For teachers, tracks when students are on and off track and places them in the penalty box and removes them automatically when they finish the predetermined discipline.

  19. Smart Alert - Keywords suggestion and fine tuning filtering

    Currently our school is live testing Smart Alerts vs. classic filtering. Of the most recent examples, a student googled "nude teens" which triggered a classic notification but failed to trigger a Smart Alert.

    After discussing this with a GG rep, Safe Search had blocked the content of the search results (yay!) to a point where Smart Alert reviewed the content, did not detect any 'explicit material' and because of this was then not confident enough to trigger this as an Alert (boo!).

    My idea is to include a list of keywords that can be utilized to help discern INTENT of…

  20. Create a feature that would allow admins to end sessions for staff who leave them open

    We had a staff member leave 2 sessions open and was not here the next day. We had to reset her password in Go Guardian, Reset her email password and then go in and end the sessions. It would have been easier to just go in and end the session on the admin side.
