  1. Block Scheduling - GoGuardian Scheduling Request

    Our High School uses block scheduling where the classes will change every other day. So for example, a student will have a class Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the first week, then the second week the student will have that same class on Tuesday and Thursday. Each student has an "A Day" and a "B Day" schedule that alternates every day with different courses.

    We are requesting a feature be created that would allow this type of scheduling to be done.

    • Link GoGuardian to a Student Informaiton System

      I would love to see a nightly import/update option for creating and updating classroom rosters from a schools student information system. Much like what happens with a Google Classroom or Canvas sync.
      Even if one large upload could be done periodically to create classrooms for teachers or mass update would help save time.

        • Staff can be added to Classes and monitored by any other staff member. This is a potential security flaw.

          We push out the GG extension to staff, as we think that it's reasonable if not necessary to at least have a record of employee online usage. We do not actively monitor staff.

          Because staff have the extension, by default they can be added to Classes by any other staff member. We would like to be able to easily add all staff to the "User exception" list in GG admin. User Exceptions prevent users from being added to any classroom session.

          We would like to be able to use a wildcard to do this. All of our staff accounts end…

          • Ability to disable teacher created schedules to accommodate change in school schedule like final exams

            I see a few requests about providing teachers with the ability to have multiple schedules to accommodate early dismissal and testing days. I think the most logical approach (programmatically and logistically) is to allow admins to disable all of the schedules with a button but still, allow teachers to start/end sessions manually on those odd days.

            • Teacher monitoring of GoGuardian usage

              My MS principal is wanting to know if there is an easier way to get a daily report about how the teachers are utilizing GoGuardian. (i.e., what is the frequency of use, how are they using the features, etc.)

                Create a way to have Go Guardian send me a "searches" and "flagged" activity report once a week on a specific student without me having to request the report manually every week?

                  • OU Sync Options and Notifications - Very Important for IT!

                    1.) Notifications on Success and Failure for the OU Sync between Google and GoGuardian

                    2.) Allow Admins the ability to customize and schedule sync options, or at least have a few pre-defined time options to better meet the dynamic needs of end-users.

                    Synchronization of users is absolutely vital. Due to an unknown error with the Google <-> GoGuardian OU sync process, we experienced several technical difficulties ranging from students appearing offline to not being applied correct filters. In the web user interface the users were showing up under "Unknown" Sub-OU. These were existing students that somehow were corrupted.

                      launched  ·  GoGuardian Admin responded

                      Thank you for your feature request and/or vote. This feature is now available to all GoGuardian Admin users! After logging into Admin 2, you will notice a ‘key’ icon in the top right — next to your username. Hovering over the key will provide more OU sync details and the ability to force a re-sync or re-authorization if a failure occurs. Feel free to reply to this email with any questions. We have more improvements coming shortly. – Zach

                    • Add the ability to block uncatagorized sites to the dilter

                      I have a filter level site that we use like your penalty box. The difference is that I use the categories to help filter instead of trying to unblock every legitimate site the students in HS need. This worked well until students started going to “screen resolution” sites. These do not have a category but allow students to use them like a proxy. The ability to block in categorized sites would mean a lot less work. We can block that category and unblock the few that might actually be legitimate and needed.

                        • allow for a bulk upload of YouTube channels and/or videos using a CSV of URLs file

                          At this time, GG doesn't have the capabilities to do this and I will need to enter the YouTube sites one at a time. Our school is TK-12 and to whitelist all teacher sites individually doesn't seem like a good use of manpower.

                            • Session lockdown time limits

                              We've had a few occurrences of teachers setting up session times that extend for the entire school day, rather than just one class period. This prevents students from accessing approved resources when they move to their next class. Can a feature be added that allows admins to set a maximum session time to match the length of class so teachers cannot accidentally lock students for an entire day.

                              • Create a view like the activity timeline, showing activity by hour of the day -- useful to spot supervision problems

                                It would be very helpful for a graph view like the activity timeline to be available for a group/OU to show hours of the day when blocked/flagged activities tend to be happening most frequently. Sometimes the supervision of students [or lack thereof] is very correlated to their online behavior.

                                  Currently the exported PDFs do not allow copying the text or clicking on the web addresses. It would be great for the PDF to be interactive where the receiving person can copy the links, or even better click on a hyperlink to further investigate the situation.

                                        Add section to whitelist YouTube playlists. Videos and Channels work great, if you added Playlist to the section that would be really useful
