    • have a blur option for images in the Smart Alerts. Explicit images don't need to be constantly visible.

      While screen shots containing explicit images are necessary for confirmation and reporting, they do not need to be visible for casual viewing of the Smart Alert cards or any other type of viewing that is not specifically attempting to analyze the content of the screen. Blurring gives the general feel of the screen while masking the objectionable content.

        Thanks for the request. Explicit screenshots are now automatically blurred in Smart Alerts and can still be unblurred in a single report view if necessary. Please try it out!

      • Admin 2.0 SmartAlerts - No Screenshot in Email

        At the moment, a screenshot is sent with the alert from Triggers. I received one due to a student getting into ***********. I think there should be an option to turn off screenshots from being sent with the email, and only exist when I get into the web site to review the issue. I opened that email and, WHOA, there it was right on my device, ***********. I am concerned about that existing in my email, and also about the passing around of those types of emails. Additionally, as a public school corporation, our email is subject to ***** records…

        • have notifications go to the proper campus administrator

          I wish I could set notifications to send to the proper campus administrator. The elementary principal does not need notifications about a high school student's activity.

            Thanks for the request! This is actually a feature of the new Smart Alerts that is being finalized as we speak and is expected to be released to everyone in June. However, we currently need more people to beta test it and help us guide its development. Just email me at cody@goguardian.com if you would like to try it out before everyone else gets a chance!

          • Improvements to the history download CVS

            Couple of things I would like to see changed in the history download CSV

            1) Download all, not just the max 1000 lines (someone else also requested this)

            2) Fix the timestamp field so it's usable. Right now it is something like "Friday (5/1) 11:00am" which doesn't sort well and Excel doesn't understand

            3) include the source IP address so I can tell if the user was accessing the Internet from home or school

                Add feature to send a warning message to students when a warning message is sent to the administrator about flagged activity. As the Admin I receive a lot of warning messages we forward to the Principal who speaks to the student, having a message also go to the student knowing this was reported may curb some of this activity.

                • make it possible to override inherited settings

                  With how the OUs are designed, all sub OUs automatically inherit the parent OUs settings- this is usually what we want but there are some occasions where we want to whitelist sites for those in the parent OU but not the sub OU. Blacklisting the site in the sub OU doesn't work as the inherited whitelist overrides it.

                    • 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!

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

                              It'd be good if there were a way to combine all of the session data into one view under the student's history. Right now we can only see one device at a time. It's scattered between each device and it makes searching their history cumbersome and time-consuming.

                                  • Ability to clone profile so we don't have to re-add all the sites we want just specific to an organization.

                                    I have the default profile set to All User and our students. I want to set a profile to just students that has all the websites of the default plus what I want to add afterwards. The default profile effects the Staff Unit because it is under the All Users umbrella. Don't want Staff effected when I just want to add a site for my Students.

                                      Thanks for requesting the ability to duplicate profiles! We just launched this feature as part of Admin 2.0 filtering. Try it out at admin.goguardian.com/policy/policies!

                                      We need the ability to enter a URL and have it return a report of all users who have visited the site.

                                        We just launched the first version of url reporting in the “Enhanced View” beta, including the ability to search by the most visited URLs. For each site, you can see a list of the users who accessed the site recently, your most active users of the site over a time range, and a graph of the site usage over a time range.

                                        If you are interested in testing the functionality and providing feedback, please email me at cody@goguardian.com and we can get you on the beta!

                                        Thank you!

                                        Sort the whitelist/blacklist alphabetically to allow us to easily identify if an item is in the list. Also to quickly identify and remove duplicates. This will also aid in troubleshooting.

                                          Hi all! As the CEO of GoGuardian I don’t get to code much anymore. So as a birthday present to myself I decided to knock out some low hanging fruit and write some code! I hope y’all enjoy the alphabetized backlist/whitelist results!

                                        • search terms for google.com.au

                                          Fix the bug whereby australian schools can't generate a report for search terms for google.com.au

                                          It is a major functionality and we're missing out.
