  1. Add texting notification for Smart Alerts

    It would be nice for designated assignees of an alert to get a text notification since admins are not always looking at their email or they have disabled email notifications on their phone. Text alerts would allow a quicker and more immediate response, especially in Self-Harm cases. Nothing fancy, just a simple SMS saying New GG Alert: Self Harm with student name and OU and URL pointing to full Smart Alert in GG.

    • Full RegEx in blacklist/whitelist

      Using the wildcard is a boon to the blacklist and whitelist URL strings, but it would be awesome to use full blown RegEx there. RegEx would allow very granular control over specific use cases.

      For example, Netflix uses the following IP range for content:
      198.38.96.0 - 198.38.127.255

      I can use the following regex to exclude all of those IP addresses:
      .*198\.38\.(9[6-9]|1[0-1][0-9]|12[0-7])\.(1?[0-9]{1,2}|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5]).*

      Or, for all those games hosted on Google Sites:
      sites\.google\.com.*(unblock(ed)?)+|(game(s)?)+.*

      will block any URL with sites.google.com and contains unblock OR unblocked OR game OR games

      Using this with the whitelist could mean that:
      (.*\.?craigslist\.org\/?)($|(\?areaID=346($|(&forumID=(501|64|2007|90|49))))|((search/((rid)|(cls)|(vol)))(\?query=.*)?(\/\d*\.html)?)$)

      Allows access to the rideshare,…

      • Block Youtube searches with keywords

        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.

            • trigger alerts using regular expressions or keywords

              Currently triggers only work for two categories. Ideally they would be much more flexible.
              Administrators should be able to enter a regular expression, keywords etc that would cause a trigger alert to be sent to a school principal.

              This alert should be able to be applied per user or per OU.

              For example student joe smith may do a search for "weapons" and the search would trigger an email to a responsible party.

              • make it so we can block Google Images while still allowing students to use Google to search for information.

                I wish there was a way to block Google image searches while still allowing students to use Google to search for information. There are so many trashy images out there..... :(

                  I'd like parents to be able to easily see what their students are doing on their school device. Ideally, this would be an email sent to the parent with details of the date, time, and website access.

                  • Penalty box

                    Penalty Box
                    The penalty box is a great idea, can we add a "blacklist" feature to it as well? For example, I'd like to block just 2 particular websites for this 1 student without having to create a new org unit. Then if he/she does well for the week, I'll remove them from box.

                    • Smart Alert - Keywords suggestion and fine tuning filtering

                      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…

                      • 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.

                        • Reporting

                          When the reports are created in CSV or PDF, is there any possible way to add a drop down menu to change the time zone. So when I pull a report it changes the time zone to PST. Also make it a dynamic report by selecting certain attributes and hit the create the report. The CSV or PDF has just that information.

                              Our filter is easily circumvented by students who find sites that do not yet have a category. I can always blacklist after the fact, but it would be much easier if uncategorized sites automatically were blocked.

                                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.

                                  • 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.

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

                                    • 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.

                                      • Announcements to students

                                        Our school is about to go 1 to 1 with chromebooks at our school. We are in the Grossmont Union High School District. My question is, is there a way to push out announcements to the chromebooks from admin? With every kid having a computer we would like the ability to put out special info to students this way. It could be on the start up screen, screen saver, or as a pop up. Is this something we could do?

                                          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…
