  1. 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.

    • Penalty Box

      Could there be multiple penalty boxes for administrators so that different settings could be administered to students based on "offense"?

      • Instead of days of the week use a calendar.

        Would like to suggest that adding a calendar instead of picking just days for the Scenes will help more teachers to use GoGuardian. We have day schedules in the High School covering 6 days, day 1 , 2, 3, .. so using a calendar will allow the teacher to schedule their whole class. This will also help with holidays, pull outs, specials.....

        • Not allow sessions to be applied to kids not on campus.

          We have kids at school until 9pm doing work with staff and want the ability to have scenes and sessions. Therefore we need our school hours to go until 9pm.

          We have teachers not end sessions with scenes and kids at home in the evening have been locked out of getting to legitimate websites.

          When kids are home (not on our IP address) we don't see their screens but scenes are still being applies.

          Please make it so we can't have scenes applied to students not on our IP.

          • Block chrome://inspect

            I recently caught a student using a fairly clever exploit that allows a user to open a window in incognito mode, thus bypassing the GoGuardian extensions and filtering.

            Reproduction steps are as follows (screenshots attached):
            1. Power on Chromebook. This exploit is most reproduceable when the Chromebook is has been recently powered on.
            2. Log in with an account that is subject to the GoGuardian extensions
            3. Navigate to chrome://inspect in the browser
            4. Click "Other" menu button on the left-hand side of the screen
            5. You will see chrome://app-list and chrome://oobe/lock in this menu. If chrome://oobe/lock does not appear,…

            • schedule for bypass codes

              I would like a calendar option when setting up the bypass codes. I have seen many times when i could give a teacher a code before hand maybe a few days out from the time they need it. If we had a calendar option we could put it in motion as soon as it is asked for and then not have to worry about it being used outside the time the teachers intended and that give us the ability to make sure that their class project or search data can be gathered and not upset the class flow. The access…

              • 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.

                  Would like to prevent users in the penalty box from having access to Google Chat/Hangouts. I know we could move them to a different OU but we want to avoid that.

                    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..... :(

                    • allow copying of whitelisted URLs from an existing policy to the Penalty Box.

                      We had setup a Restricted Policy prior to GoGuardian 2.0 (which introduced the Penalty Box). I would like to start using the Penalty Box feature but don't want to add all the allowed URLs by hand. It would be nice to copy/paste or export/import all the URLs from a policy to the Penalty Box.

                      • 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…

                        • Automatic Removal from Penalty Box After Time Limit

                          It would be awesome to automatically remove a student from the Penalty Box after a set time. For example, next to student in PB, I could choose a date that they are automatically removed. We have a policy in our school that depending on the offense, they get so many days/weeks in the box. It would be great to have that feature so I don't clutter my Google Calendar with reminders to take kids out of the box.

                          • User history downloads URL timestamp in local time

                            It would be better if the timestamps for URLs on downloaded user history files could be reported in local time rather than UTC. Reading the time in UTC rather than local time is very confusing for some users.

                            • Have a place to put a specific url, not just the domain

                              If you google search the word snake or snake game, the ability to play a flash snake game comes up right in the search results, like at this url: https://www.google.com/search?q=snake&oq=snake&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j69i58j69i60l3.2175j0j1&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

                              If I try to block that url, it simplifies it to google.com/search and then all google searches are disabled. I just want that one specific search result to be blocked so they can't play snake. If I try the keyword *snake* then even legitimate websites with the word snake in the url is blocked, like wikipedia research on snakes, etc. Please fix!

                                We forward all Smart Alert reports to the students principal and they follow up with the student. It would be helpful to have an option of Forwarded or something similar to the Active, Resolved, Dismissed options available to better describe the action.

                                  It would be nice to be able to customize the penalty box based on school. For example a high school penalty box could be setup slightly different than a junior high or elementary one. High school might use different links than a JH one.

                                        • Create an app that allows for immediate notifications sent to phone.

                                          While email alerts are great, administrator inboxes become flooded and things can be lost in the shuffle. Push notifications enable immediate notification on smart phone/watch rather than pulling from inbox that can go unchecked for hours.
