  2. Schedule a lockdown period daily/weekly or monthly. Very much like the parental control function of the MacBook

    Parents complain about students using ChromeBook way beyond their bedtime and spending too much time in the weekends indulging in their ChromeBooks or online activities.

  3. Build a filter for PC and Mac's

    We love GoGuardian for our Chromebooks. We would love a client that we can install or add to our Windows and Mac devices. Another idea would be for iPads and Androids.

  4. Please add the ability to click on a flagged term and see what user was the one that created the flagg

    I would like to be able to click on or search a term ie "sex" and get a list of all the users that have caused the flag. and then be able to redirect to the site that it happened on. Also the same with search terms or phrases. Safe search enforcement works well but on images some times things slip though.

  7. Notify admin when a stolen chromebook comes online

    Currently, Only Administrators with Chromebooks in Theft Recovery that have Geolocation information are notified that the device has come online. It would be very helpful if the Admins were notified at ANY TIME a device comes online. A lot of times we locate devices by who is logging into them or into the various apps they navigate to. It is usually days even weeks before we realize a device came online and a lot of times we've missed our opportunity to locate it.

    Thanks for requesting better theft recovery notifications, as we just launched it!

    Over the last few weeks, we overhauled how devices are tracked via Theft Recovery, meaning that you will only see one session per device, you will not see any erroneous sessions from Google testing the theft recovery app, and you will receive notifications as soon as the first piece of data comes back for a missing device. In addition, if you have ever had a trial of GoGuardian Fleet or activate a trial of GoGuardian Fleet, we will be able to show serial numbers in Theft Recovery as well.

    Hope this makes finding your devices much simpler!

  8. be able to see what user is on a certain page right now

    We allow students to take devices home. We allow them to use facebook.com at home. We do not allow facebook access at school. We would like a way to see who is on facebook during school hours without having to go into each user's history. It would help if under sites on the dashboard we could click on facebook and then have a dropdown to change the time frame that it is looking at.

  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.

    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. Recursive search through OU's for users with restricted OU access.

    If you restrict teachers or admins to only be able to see certain OU's, then they currently have to select each OU individually to see the users/devices in that OU. It does not allow recursive search/view through "All Users" showing all of their allowed OU's at once. This increases time in searching for students etc...

    I suggest that the security be modified to allow us to restrict the user to only view certain OU's but to allow them to select the "All Users" OU in the drop down menu. This would then recursively search all of that user's allowed OU's…

  12. 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?

  13. It would be great if the organization's flagged terms were pulled to the YouTube Blacklist keywords automatically.

    It would be great if the organization's flagged terms were automatically pulled to the YouTube Blacklist keywords or at least have that as an option. It would also be helpful to be able to bulk upload terms.

  14. Show last time a site was accessed by a student

    When I'm looking in a student's history, I'd like to see in their "Top Sites" information, the last time a site was accessed. If they are spending a great deal of time on a site that may not be a good choice during school hours, I'd like to know if they are accessing it during school hours or after. Currently I have to try and find it in their history, which can be multiple pages per day and I just don't have time.

  15. Create Blacklist cleanup

    When the backlist gets overloaded with sites, it gets kinda overwhelming. If there could be a way to organize the list (either by category, alphabetically, or by date added) that would be great.

  16. Update the filter - especially the gaming category

    We have far to many gaming sites being accessed by students - your filter for catching these is not very good, as evidenced by the long list I have to keep adding to each day.

    Thanks for pushing for an improvement in our filtering. As a first step, we just released an algorithm to do automatic website categorization for the three most requested categories – “pornography”, “online games”, and “movies and television”. Thus, if a student accesses an uncategorized site, we check the content on each page and add it to the above categories automatically if the content matches.

    What this means for you: considering that there are thousands of websites created every day specifically to circumvent URL blocking, category blacklisting will be more effective in blocking new and uncategorized sites. In addition, you should be able to spend less time manually tracking new sites that are getting around the filter and adding them to our and your blacklists.

    We are currently categorizing 2000+ sites every day that students are visiting that would get around any list or database type filter. Please let me know…

  17. Add proxy sites to categories for blocking

    I have students finding all kinds of proxy sites to get past blockages, but there is no category for all these.

    Thanks for your request! We just added another 3000 proxy sites to our blacklist. However, we also realize that proxy mirror sites are being added daily, so we are working on a way to automatically categorize new proxy sites that students visit as well as improving flagged activity so that even if a student is using a proxy, we are giving you insight and awareness about what they are doing.

  18. Create a simple search by URL.

    In other words, I paste in the URL and it tells me every user that has gone to it and when.

  19. YouTube - Option to disable Suggested Videos

    It would be nice to have an option to block the suggested videos on YouTube. This includes the videos in the right sidebar in the player after a video has finished playing. These can sometimes contain inappropriate titles and thumbnails.

  20. Private IP ranges

    Whitelist private IP address ranges by default instead of having to add these via CSV. This should resolve issues when users try to enable Google cloud print.

    Here are the ranges:

    10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
    172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
    192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
