Collect local device IP address
Current GG reports show our public facing IP address for all devices. All of our Chromebooks get unique IP addresses behind the firewall but all of our devices share one public IP address.
Can GG collect the local IP rather than the NATed public IP address?

Log a serial of the chromebook and allow searching by that serial, Lightspeed has this currently

MAC address please!! I would kill to be able to tie a MAC address to a students browsing session. This would help in identifying what device a student used. With this, the ability to search for a mac address and see what users used that device.
A long shot I am sure, but it would help me track down vandals.

Agreed. We had a chromebook go wandering, and this feature would have been a godsend.

If you can get the local IP, then you may as well add the MAC address. That way you know exactly which Chromebook it is associated with.
Showing the last known internal IP would be great. Often times when a student loses their chromebook, it is typically found in the school (sometimes hidden in a closet or drawer as a joke)
Being able to see the last known IP, we can at least narrow down to a particular VLAN any most likely the actual Access point, and significantly speed up our search.
Just putting into theft recovery sometimes isnt enough, because it will not "Phone home" until someone opens the cbook

This would be great. Local IP would help us track down devices in our network both logically and physically. It'd be a great feature to help us troubleshoot devices with filtering problems or connection issues.

We had a incident and it would be great if it shows the local Ip address and the user name for that IP address.

This will help with troubleshooting our Network infrastructure and with ensuring Chromebook locations are correct. Local IP address is important.
I would like that ability as well. It would help out as well if we could get a report from the chromebook and list the ips that were associated with the device for a specified period of time.
Is there a way to setup an alert if a device in a certain OU is getting an IP not within a defined range? We restrict our 7-10 graders to leave their device in a cart at night but they try to sneak them out from time to time. I would like an alert to display if a Chromebook that we manage is seen outside of our network.
