    • Instead of days of the week use a calendar.

      Would like to suggest that adding a calendar instead of picking just days for the Scenes will help more teachers to use GoGuardian. We have day schedules in the High School covering 6 days, day 1 , 2, 3, .. so using a calendar will allow the teacher to schedule their whole class. This will also help with holidays, pull outs, specials.....

      • Create a feature that would allow admins to end sessions for staff who leave them open

        We had a staff member leave 2 sessions open and was not here the next day. We had to reset her password in Go Guardian, Reset her email password and then go in and end the sessions. It would have been easier to just go in and end the session on the admin side.

        • "Add to Filter" Option in Smart Alert Behavior Details Screen

          Currently, to block a site that has triggered a Smart Alert, you have to exit the behavior screen, go to the filter and manually add the site to the blacklist. I am requesting that an option to add the site to a filter list directly from the Smart Alert Behavior Details page. Perhaps right below the "CATEGORY" Is this Explicit or Self-Harm field.

          • Create a feature that oversees teachers within your managed organization that allows you to manage teacher sessions.

            Wether its added to the left panel in admin or is its own standalone program you select from the dropdown GoGuardian menu, this would be beneficial to administrators when teachers create sessions that may accidentally have a runtime that rolls into another teacher's class, thus creating problems for students who still have scenes disabling their ability to do tasks in that specific class.

              • Report on Individual Online Activity

                I would love to be able to download reports that would show each students breakdown of online activity over an interval of time. For example, how much time did student x spend on google.docs, Khanacademy, and Youtube over the last week, month, year etc.

                As the data scientist at my district I am looking to find relationships between this data and individual achievement

                • Create a way to freeze the browser while students are taking a test.

                  Our students use Google Forms to take tests. Right now, they could open another browser to look up the answer. It would be nice if the teacher could freeze it so that they can't leave the test screen.

                    Thanks for requesting the ability to be able to freeze the browser when students are taking a test. This currently isn’t a priority in the Admin product, but is a feature in GoGuardian Teacher. Please email me at cody@goguardian.com if you need more info!

                      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.

                      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.

                        • Correct/Adjustable Time Zone in Exports.

                          It would be beneficial to be able to adjust the time zone output on the history CSV exports. It is very confusing when providing this report to parents to tell them that they need to subtract 6 hours(For CST) from all of the times.

                            Allow the Youtube Blacklist keywords to block searches with the keywords. That way I don't have students searching for inappropriate material and seeing 100's of thumbnails of inappropriate material.

                            • 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.

                              • Give some indication of teacher account activity

                                There is currently no way to tell if a teacher's account is in use, like the last login date or whether it is linked to a Google account. This would be very helpful in weeding out unneeded accounts and duplicates. Since it is possible to create multiple accounts with the same email address, it would be helpful to know which accounts are actually used.

                                      Currently our school is live testing Smart Alerts vs. classic filtering. Of the most recent examples, a student googled "nude teens" which triggered a classic notification but failed to trigger a Smart Alert.

                                      After discussing this with a GG rep, Safe Search had blocked the content of the search results (yay!) to a point where Smart Alert reviewed the content, did not detect any 'explicit material' and because of this was then not confident enough to trigger this as an Alert (boo!).

                                      My idea is to include a list of keywords that can be utilized to help discern INTENT of…
