  1. Block Uncategorized Domains

    Our filter is easily circumvented by students who find sites that do not yet have a category. I can always blacklist after the fact, but it would be much easier if uncategorized sites automatically were blocked.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. provide those who can view Smart Alerts (without being an admin) the ability to resolve Alerts.

    Currently, we have admins who view the Smart Alerts and speak to/discipline students. However, they do not have the ability to resolve those issues (removing them from the feed). Our fear is that with so many alerts being stored in the feed (resolved and not), there is potential for an Alert to get lost and not addressed.

  7. Have button on blocked web pages to send email with URL to admin.

    Right now I have a button to send an email to the admin on the blocked web site page. I can't figure out how to automatically include the URL in the email. I have a lot of students asking for access, but they don't include the URL. I have to email them back to get the URL.

  8. Create a app search by user

    Create a search that allows us to find what users have installed a specific app. We can blacklist an app but we can't tell who installed (or is using) it

  9. Whitelist by Category

    With Blacklist by Category, sometimes websites fall under multiple categories. It would be nice to have a category by whitelist that overrides the category by blacklist when checked. I.e. Whitelisting the Educational Games category as many of them fall under Online Games and end up getting blocked.

    planned  ·  cody responded

    Whitelisting categories is being designed as we speak in our new filtering implementation. Coming soon!

  10. Redesign flagged alert notifications to make an email digest option available.

    Our admins receive too many flagged activity alerts, and it makes it difficult to act on them because there is such a high volume of separate emails. It would be great if they could be condensed into a daily digest that easily identifies student, OU, time, and the flagged activity.

  11. Could you add a link on the student History page to print a report? I am in the IT department and have no trouble opening a CSV, opeining in

    Could you add a link on the student History page to print a report? I am in the IT department and have no trouble opening a CSV, opeining in Excel, expanding the column width, Typing a title at the top of the report, etc... I was just thinking, however, that our Principals might want to print out a nicely formatted report that they can put in a student's folder. They use this when meeting with parents, so the report formatting makes an impact. I was also just thinking in terms of making it simple and quick... Some of our high…

  13. Self Harm Notifications

    I think there should be a way to setup an alert for a guidance counselor that a student is looking up "self harm" without giving them access to the console to view or modify settings.

    If a student is looking to hurt them selfs then we as admins getting the notification would be responsible if they did something!

    If we could setup a notification to a counselor and they could ideally get a screen shot to their e-mail that would be really helpful! As it stands now they would need a GG account and access to the dash board and…

  14. Allow any Teacher to control student access when blocked by another Teacher's session because of scheduling changes.

    When our schedule changes, it is getting very frustrating when GoGuardian blocks the kids because their other teachers have restrictions. The teachers are being pretty good about taking down the restrictions but if they are not available then the kids are out of luck. Also there is a lag between when they tell it to turn off and when the kids can access again. Make a way that another teacher can turn off the session. For example if I have kids in my room that have teacher X, and his session started even though they are not in his class,…

  15. Bypass

    In Bypass I would like to see the ability to select a single website to bypass. Like Pinterest for x amount of time. That way if a class is doing an assignment that needs a certain site that is not open normally it could be added to a bypass filter and not open up the entire blacklist

  16. Schedule usage reports to run automatically for certain users/OUs

    We have OUs setup for students that abuse their Internet usage, it would be nice if we could get usage reports for these students automatically emailed daily.

  18. A keystroke logger to see what students are typing. Good for preventing bullying, etc.

    This would be useful to see what students are typing in docs, etc, messages. would help prevent bullying etc.

  19. Do not allow multiple accounts with the same email address.

    When importing from csv, we can import multiple accounts with difference case, like jdoe@domain.com and Jdoe@domain.com can be added in separate csv imports. We now have 50 duplicate accounts and no idea which one gets used when the user logs in... which seems like a bug more than a feature request.

  20. Theft Recovery Notes

    Theft Recovery Notes would be very helpful per device. When you have lots of devices that have gone missing it would be nice to have on the screen some notes that you and others may write about that device.
