    We just launched the first version of app reporting in the “Enhanced View” beta, including the ability to search by apps that your students have installed. A total list of apps is still in the works as some schools have 100s of thousands of apps and extensions being used by their students and we are working on the best way to display them.

    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!

  2. Search for user activity by URL

    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!

  3. Provide a feature to block specific search terms

    Rather than just flagging terms, I need them to be blocked from being searched for on the internet. Students are searching for inappropriate things online and seeing the preview of the images. I need the search terms to be blocked where the actual search triggers a block screen.

  4. Filter history by time.

    Add the ability to filter either an individual or OU's top sites by time. We would like to determine how students are using their Chromebooks during school hours vs home.

  5. Add admin/student messaging

    I would like the ability to send a student a message as an Admin monitoring student use. This would be extremely helpful if I notice a student using YouTube for entertainment purposes.

  6. Link GoGuardian to a Student Informaiton System

    I would love to see a nightly import/update option for creating and updating classroom rosters from a schools student information system. Much like what happens with a Google Classroom or Canvas sync.
    Even if one large upload could be done periodically to create classrooms for teachers or mass update would help save time.

  7. Provide more device information in user reports

    When searching user information, it would be beneficial to see what device the person was using. In the event that a device is lost/stolen/broken we can use this information to definitevely identify who had the device last.

    Thanks for the feature request! We have just started working on a feature to show the most recent device that a student has used (hopefully with a full log coming soon).

  8. 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!

  9. Automatic Removal from Penalty Box After Time Limit

    It would be awesome to automatically remove a student from the Penalty Box after a set time. For example, next to student in PB, I could choose a date that they are automatically removed. We have a policy in our school that depending on the offense, they get so many days/weeks in the box. It would be great to have that feature so I don't clutter my Google Calendar with reminders to take kids out of the box.

  10. A way to report each single user's total time online for any time range

    We would like the ability to report each user's time spent online by individual user in the format of user@domain.com, xxx hours for the entire domain.

  11. Scenes Override

    As admins I need a way to force end scenes and schedules for when teachers are on vacation, school is on break, students are in in school suspension, etc. Something like a student exempt option and a global override schedule would be great.

  12. Emulate Teachers

    I would like to be able to log in as an admin and emulate a teacher account. This way if the teachers need help we can then log in as them and see the problem first hand. This would also help if the teacher were to start a session and need to leave we could then emulate them to edit or close the session.

  13. Smart Alerts - Automatically move Students to 'Penalty Box'

    I love the smart alerts feature in 2.0 and the new Penalty Box. I would like to combine the two! Is it possible to have a smart alert trigger a move to the Penalty Box? So if a student triggers the *********** alert, they would then get moved to the box where they could only access a handful of sites? Sometimes we do not get to review alerts in a timely manner and the student behavior continues.

  14. Allow exporting of the whitelist/blacklist to a CSV file

    Allow exporting of the whitelist/blacklist to a CSV file. This will be great for backup documentation. And also for keeping a record of who or why certain sites were allowed or blocked.

  16. Sort whitelist blacklist alphabetically. Not by date entered.

    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!

  17. Allow deletion of unwanted user accounts

    Since it is possible to create multiple accounts with the same username and this has happened numerous times during mass imports. We could really benefit from some way to delete user accounts. Having duplicates is very confusing because we cannot tell which one has been used and are therefore forced to keep all the duplicates active.

  18. Allow for Multiple Penalty Boxes to be Created

    As much as I like the penalty box, we need the ability to have something that isn't all or nothing. Right now, we have to put all students in the same penalty box. Because of this, whitelisted sites for high school are also whitelisted for middle school/elementary as there is just one penalty box. The ability to create multiple penalty boxes would be very helpful for a multitude of reasons (whitelisting by building level; allow for a very restricted box for those students who need it). Moving students in and out of different OUs just isn't practical and that isn't…

  19. Sitewide admin override

    The ability of admin to override teacher scenes either individually or en masse would be very useful in situations where a teacher or teachers have failed to deactivate automated scenes either prior to an absence or vacation period leaving a site without recourse other than contacting Goguardian itself to deactivate their scenes manually on the backend.

  20. Make it so that bypass passwords expire.

    Can you please program in a way for the passwords to expire. I like that a student can use a password for thirty minutes, but I would like to be able to set a time for that password to stop working. For example, if I create a password for my students to use during a class period I would like it to expire at the end of that class period, or I can set it to expire at a certain date or time.
