  1. 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.

  3. 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.

    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!

  5. When a Smart Alert is resolved, it should disappear from the dashboard

    Currently, a Smart Alert displays on the dashboard even after it has been resolved. Please have the dashboard only display smart alerts that are not resolved.

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to delete users in "User Management" section. Not just rename.

    We are starting out with GG in our organization and already I noticed we have a few duplicate users (multiple techs adding same teacher). It would be great to get a warning indicating that a teacher has already been added and to have the ability to delete users.

    Thank you,

  9. Increase the maximum whitelist limit to 5k

    Increase the maximum whitelist limit to 5k so we can whitelist all resources in our curriculum.

  10. Add more functionality to help me monitor my staff's usage of GoGuardian

    I'd like to see reports on how often my teachers are using it, how they are using it, etc. This will help me provide feedback and support in making sure GoGuardian is being implemented with fidelity at the classroom level.

    Thanks for the request for a Global Blacklist Change Update. While we haven’t decided on this as a feature yet, I wanted to update you guys directly, as we just added another 37,000 suggestions from GoGuardian admins to our blacklist.

  13. 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…

  14. Add texting notification for Smart Alerts

    It would be nice for designated assignees of an alert to get a text notification since admins are not always looking at their email or they have disabled email notifications on their phone. Text alerts would allow a quicker and more immediate response, especially in Self-Harm cases. Nothing fancy, just a simple SMS saying New GG Alert: Self Harm with student name and OU and URL pointing to full Smart Alert in GG.

  15. Full RegEx in blacklist/whitelist

    Using the wildcard is a boon to the blacklist and whitelist URL strings, but it would be awesome to use full blown RegEx there. RegEx would allow very granular control over specific use cases.

    For example, Netflix uses the following IP range for content:
    198.38.96.0 - 198.38.127.255

    I can use the following regex to exclude all of those IP addresses:
    .*198\.38\.(9[6-9]|1[0-1][0-9]|12[0-7])\.(1?[0-9]{1,2}|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5]).*

    Or, for all those games hosted on Google Sites:
    sites\.google\.com.*(unblock(ed)?)+|(game(s)?)+.*

    will block any URL with sites.google.com and contains unblock OR unblocked OR game OR games

    Using this with the whitelist could mean that:
    (.*\.?craigslist\.org\/?)($|(\?areaID=346($|(&forumID=(501|64|2007|90|49))))|((search/((rid)|(cls)|(vol)))(\?query=.*)?(\/\d*\.html)?)$)

    Allows access to the rideshare,…

  16. Announcements to students

    Our school is about to go 1 to 1 with chromebooks at our school. We are in the Grossmont Union High School District. My question is, is there a way to push out announcements to the chromebooks from admin? With every kid having a computer we would like the ability to put out special info to students this way. It could be on the start up screen, screen saver, or as a pop up. Is this something we could do?

  17. Provide a method to whitelist a group of YouTube videos a one time (.csv import, for example).

    I have a few teachers that have 30 or more videos they want whitelisted. It would be great to be able to import these into GoGuardian as a group, rather than one at a time.

  18. Give some indication of teacher account activity

    There is currently no way to tell if a teacher's account is in use, like the last login date or whether it is linked to a Google account. This would be very helpful in weeding out unneeded accounts and duplicates. Since it is possible to create multiple accounts with the same email address, it would be helpful to know which accounts are actually used.

  19. trigger alerts using regular expressions or keywords

    Currently triggers only work for two categories. Ideally they would be much more flexible.
    Administrators should be able to enter a regular expression, keywords etc that would cause a trigger alert to be sent to a school principal.

    This alert should be able to be applied per user or per OU.

    For example student joe smith may do a search for "weapons" and the search would trigger an email to a responsible party.

  20. Provide a way to white list sites from Smart Alerts.

    Smart Alerts are awesome, but in this case, I am getting them multiple times a day on a site. The site's content is "Fan Fiction" but its not obscene enough that it warrants any action on my part. If I could tell smart alerts to ignore that site, it would cut down on my alerts significantly. I would estimate that 30% of my alerts are from this one site.
