  1. 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  launched  ·  cody responded

                  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!

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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).

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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!

                              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.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                      In the old GoGuardian under the summary it would tell you how many users are online. When you click it, it show's you who is online. In the 2.0 version it doesn't nor can I sort when viewing all users. Can this be added or have the capability to sort by the fields when viewing all users?

                                      • provide the option to bulk import URLs into policies.

                                        The transition into Admin 2.0 has not been smooth in terms of whitelisting new resources for our students to view, as well as how links are clumped together in policies.

                                        It would be great to do a mass import of all links we plan for students to use for the school year. Exporting URLs from policies would also be good for when we have to do a yearly cleanup of our lists.

                                        • 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.
