  1. Increase the maximum whitelist limit to 5k

    Increase the maximum whitelist limit to 5k so we can whitelist all resources in our curriculum.

  2. Add more functionality to help me monitor my staff's usage of GoGuardian

    I'd like to see reports on how often my teachers are using it, how they are using it, etc. This will help me provide feedback and support in making sure GoGuardian is being implemented with fidelity at the classroom level.

  3. Add texting notification for Smart Alerts

    It would be nice for designated assignees of an alert to get a text notification since admins are not always looking at their email or they have disabled email notifications on their phone. Text alerts would allow a quicker and more immediate response, especially in Self-Harm cases. Nothing fancy, just a simple SMS saying New GG Alert: Self Harm with student name and OU and URL pointing to full Smart Alert in GG.

    Thanks for alerting us to Leaf Browser Alpha. We are constantly adding new proxy/VPN/ghost browsers that allow students to bypass filtering and it has been added to our global blacklist. In the future, you can contact us directly when students find a bypass or add it to your own list of blacklisted apps. In addition, many schools use the “block all apps and extensions except the ones I allow” setting in the Google Admin Console to minimize the use of unauthorized apps.

    Hope this helps!

  5. allow blocking of entire top level domains.

    I find that many times the students are navigating to sites which should be blocked but are based on one of the new custom TLDs such as .click or .website . It would be simpler to have the option to default block many of them and then whitelist what we would like opened as opposed to blocking each of the new websites as they have just modified their domain names.

    Thanks for the request. You can currently add wildcards to your blacklist, such as * 123movies * (without the spaces, this forum converts the text to bold if I move them next to the word) which would block all the variations of 123movies – 123movies.com, 123movies.click, 123movies.co.au, 123movies.xyz, 123movies.io, etc. Is this what you are looking for?

  6. Notification on Global Blacklist Change

    Notify designated admins (option to receive email notifications) when new websites are blacklisted by GoGuardian.

    Thanks for the request for a Global Blacklist Change Update. While we haven’t decided on this as a feature yet, I wanted to update you guys directly, as we just added another 37,000 suggestions from GoGuardian admins to our blacklist.

  8. Would love to have exported student files to match up my time zone rather than UTC time

    Would love to have exported student files to match up my time zone rather than UTC time. It would make it much easier to rebuttal hostile parents who don't believe the time lines.

  9. trigger alerts using regular expressions or keywords

    Currently triggers only work for two categories. Ideally they would be much more flexible.
    Administrators should be able to enter a regular expression, keywords etc that would cause a trigger alert to be sent to a school principal.

    This alert should be able to be applied per user or per OU.

    For example student joe smith may do a search for "weapons" and the search would trigger an email to a responsible party.

  10. provide those who can view Smart Alerts (without being an admin) the ability to resolve Alerts.

    Currently, we have admins who view the Smart Alerts and speak to/discipline students. However, they do not have the ability to resolve those issues (removing them from the feed). Our fear is that with so many alerts being stored in the feed (resolved and not), there is potential for an Alert to get lost and not addressed.

  11. Penalty box

    Penalty Box
    The penalty box is a great idea, can we add a "blacklist" feature to it as well? For example, I'd like to block just 2 particular websites for this 1 student without having to create a new org unit. Then if he/she does well for the week, I'll remove them from box.

  12. Provide a way to white list sites from Smart Alerts.

    Smart Alerts are awesome, but in this case, I am getting them multiple times a day on a site. The site's content is "Fan Fiction" but its not obscene enough that it warrants any action on my part. If I could tell smart alerts to ignore that site, it would cut down on my alerts significantly. I would estimate that 30% of my alerts are from this one site.

  13. Reporting

    When the reports are created in CSV or PDF, is there any possible way to add a drop down menu to change the time zone. So when I pull a report it changes the time zone to PST. Also make it a dynamic report by selecting certain attributes and hit the create the report. The CSV or PDF has just that information.

  14. Export theft recovery information

    It would be nice if there was a download report for the theft recovery. We work with the local authorities to recover devices and exporting the webpage or "printing" as PDF works, but isn't extremely convenient.

  15. Filter by Google group instead of OU. Allow customers to switch this on.

    My users and OUs are auto created and managed with a script. A request has come to me from administration to assign users who abuse their privileges restricted internet access instead of removing their network access. The typical solution would be to create an OU for this and drop the users in this OU, but the automation script we have in place will set these users back in the correct OU nightly.

  16. Provide a method to whitelist a group of YouTube videos a one time (.csv import, for example).

    I have a few teachers that have 30 or more videos they want whitelisted. It would be great to be able to import these into GoGuardian as a group, rather than one at a time.

  17. 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…

  18. Theft recovery

    Add a comments or note section to Theft Recovery. This would allow users to provide details if the authorities have been contacted, report number, who is possession of the device and any other pertinent information.
