GoGuardian Admin

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. On Theft recovery devices, We would like the ability to show splash screen saying "Property OF..."

    On Theft recovery devices, We would like the ability to show splash screen saying "Property OF..."
    Our Local Law enforcement tracking devices asked about this to show whom ever has the device that it is actually Stolen property.

  9. Have button on blocked web pages to send email with URL to admin.

    Right now I have a button to send an email to the admin on the blocked web site page. I can't figure out how to automatically include the URL in the email. I have a lot of students asking for access, but they don't include the URL. I have to email them back to get the URL.

  10. Create a app search by user

    Create a search that allows us to find what users have installed a specific app. We can blacklist an app but we can't tell who installed (or is using) it

  11. A keystroke logger to see what students are typing. Good for preventing bullying, etc.

    This would be useful to see what students are typing in docs, etc, messages. would help prevent bullying etc.

  12. 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.

    planned  ·  cody responded

    Whitelisting categories is being designed as we speak in our new filtering implementation. Coming soon!

  13. 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.

  14. Could you add a link on the student History page to print a report? I am in the IT department and have no trouble opening a CSV, opeining in

    Could you add a link on the student History page to print a report? I am in the IT department and have no trouble opening a CSV, opeining in Excel, expanding the column width, Typing a title at the top of the report, etc... I was just thinking, however, that our Principals might want to print out a nicely formatted report that they can put in a student's folder. They use this when meeting with parents, so the report formatting makes an impact. I was also just thinking in terms of making it simple and quick... Some of our high…

  15. Whitelist for Smart Alerts

    Whitelist for Smart Alerts

    I've seen this feature request a few times and have voted for it each time. I just wanted to bump it up with my own feature request. We've been receiving a lot of false positive Smart Alerts, which negatively impacts our user experience twofold: (1) this makes it more difficult for notification email recipients to separate bona fide flags of explicit/self-harm student Internet use from false positives, and (2) it de-legitimizes the Smart Alerts system - if notification email recipients receive too many false positives, they are less likely to have faith in the Smart Alert…

  16. Category for HTML Editor sites

    Recently, at my school it has been discovered students are using html editor websites to copy and paste website source code to manipulate the page to bypass the GoGuardian filter. I can easily block the sites but there are so many. Can a category be built designated for this? Myself and administration have been concern about this because they are attempting to bypass out regulations/security in place.

  17. Theft Recovery Notes

    Theft Recovery Notes would be very helpful per device. When you have lots of devices that have gone missing it would be nice to have on the screen some notes that you and others may write about that device.

  18. Provide Device Details in SMART Alerts

    If a student looks at inappropriate material outside of school it would be nice if GoGuardian provided the capability to look at some sort of device details (e.g., serial number, device model, etc.) along with the SMART alert to help us verify whether the student was looking at the material using a school issued device.

  19. Theft Mode Redirect

    Hello,

    We would like to set the redirect URL on Chromebooks that are put into the Theft Recovery. If the device is in the Theft Recovery and the Chromebook is found and logged into, we would like to redirect their first search to our Lost/Found page.

  20. Self Harm Notifications

    I think there should be a way to setup an alert for a guidance counselor that a student is looking up "self harm" without giving them access to the console to view or modify settings.

    If a student is looking to hurt them selfs then we as admins getting the notification would be responsible if they did something!

    If we could setup a notification to a counselor and they could ideally get a screen shot to their e-mail that would be really helpful! As it stands now they would need a GG account and access to the dash board and…
