  1. Block YouTube Messenger

    Block YouTube Messenger so that students are not allowed to chat. What's very concerning about this is that students can chat OUTSIDE the domain with anyone. This should be a feature in the policy area of GoGuardian for Admin along with blocking YouTube Comments and SideBar.

  2. 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.

  3. mini player

    It would be nice to be able to disable the Youtube miniplayer. Kids have learned that for videos that GG is blocking, if they refresh the page and repeatedly click the miniplayer icon the video will open up in a separate window and no longer be blocked.

  4. Google Search Results Filter

    Give admins the ability to filter Google Search results based on the flags already implemented. The strangest flags pop on innocuous searches, and I would like to have the ability to prevent those flagged items from displaying in the results list. SafeSearch does not do enough and having the ability to filter flagged terms would be invaluable.

  5. create a master "bell schedule" through the admin portal for the teacher console.

    It'd be nice to have a master bell schedule with specific times so when teachers set up their classes, all they have to do is click off the periods the class meets. That way, there's no mistakes or overlaps in coverage.

  6. Fix GoGuardian settings for Youtube so that the miniplayer is blocked also

    My kids are able to bypass the GoGuardian filter on Youtube by simply moving the video to the miniplayer. This is a HUGE issue and now pretty much every kid in my school knows the trick so GoGuardian is useless unless I block Youtube altogether, in which case teachers start complaining because they use it for lessons. I have talked with multiple support agents with both GoGuardian and Google and nobody seems to have an answer or care. I just get a shrug of the shoulders and a "sorry, can't help you".

  7. Add webblocker category for Youtube to mp3 converter websites

    We have issues with our students going to online converter/downloader sites to pull music/videos from youtube, which they then save to their Drive to listen/watch in class. This is their way of trying to circumvent not being allowed on YouTube in class. I've been manually blacklisting the websites but there are so many, it would be nice to have a broad category for youtube downloaders/mp3 converter websites.

  8. 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.

  9. A Granular School, Home, and Bedtime Policy

    I would like to see a more granular and blended Default policy. I want students to be focused on school while at school. I want to give them some additional access outside of school hours; and have a black-out "bed-time" policy with no access to anything during certain hours. The blended policy would look like this:

    SCHOOL POLICY
    M-F 8a-3p: Access to school-related websites only (no games, social media, etc.)

    OUT OF SCHOOL POLICY
    M-F 3p-12a + Sat & Sun: Access to school-related websites along with some games, social media, etc.

    BEDTIME BLACKOUT POLICY
    Mon-Sun: 12am-6am - no access to…

  10. Games within Google search

    We are having a lot of issues with kids playing the games that you can play simply by doing a Google search (Snake, Pacman, etc.). However, if you block the url that comes up when the students search for these, it blocks ALL Google searches. Because these games are embedded in the page, it makes it impossible to keep students off of them other than by playing close the tab all day long. I know this is probably something that will never be fixed because it's really a Google thing, but I have to try to bring this to someone's…

  12. In the Blocked Attempts list, highlight the area in the URL that is within the Custom Block List.

    In the blocked attempts list, it would be helpful to either have the portion of the attempted URL highlighted with what matched in the Custom Block list, or the Custom Block list item show on the right.

  13. Smart Alert- Explicit- allow filtering for "Medium", "High", "Very High"

    All medium, high and very high explicit smart alerts are recorded and displayed as a tile. It would be helpful to mark the front of each tile with it's confidence level and also allow us to filter the list by confidence level.

    Our leadership staff does not want the email alerts for explicit due to it affecting visibility of self-harm alerts that have the same subject line. They want to manually review the log periodically. Our experience is that medium confidence level is almost always false-positive and they are tired of periodically plodding through mostly false-positives to find actionable information.

  14. Expiration or Defined use period for allow filter items

    Sometimes teachers would like to use a specific site or page of a site for a period of time. Perhaps this site has some usefulness but has some less desirable content such as games. Being able to expire it, or better yet being able to set an Activate/Deactivate time frame, would simplify management of such items.

  15. Have an option to create more than one penalty box.

    It would be great if we could have access to creating more than one penalty box. It is kind of hard to have one box with 18 different grade levels. Thank you.

  16. Better logging of device usage for reporting purposes

    Although you can currently see how many devices are online at any particular time, and the old version allows you to see a graph of past usage of how many devices were connected at any particular time, it would be nice to have a usage statistic for how many of your devices have been used in the last 24 hours or 5 days, etc. not how many were in use at a particular time, but how many different devices were logged into and used over that period. It would be helpful to justify the need for more devices or for…

  17. Multiple penalty boxes

    It would be nice to be able to create more than one penalty box as some campuses/students have different requirement than others.

  19. Block Emoji searches

    It would be great if we could block searching by emoji. We recently ran into an issue where a student was searching 🍆. We worked with support on how to block 🍆, but there are too many combos of emoji that mean inappropriate things to manually block them.

  20. Ability to unblock an individual item (url, Google doc, etc.) that has been flagged by Smart Alert as Explicit or Self-Harm

    Ability to unblock an individual item (url, Google doc, etc.) that has been flagged by Smart Alert as Explicit or Self-Harm without having to change the confidence level of the entire Smart Alert for those categories. Example: a student authors and essay on suicide rates of women in developing countries, but has it blocked as both Explicit and Self Harm with medium confidence. In order to unblock her essay, Smart Alert confidence had to be changed to High in both categories. Being able to assess a single item's relevance and then unblock only that item, would allow for a very…
