  1. 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

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

    There is now a PDF Report available to make it easier to present data to principals, parents, and teachers. Please let us know how you like it!

  5. Filter by Google group instead of OU. Allow customers to switch this on.

    My users and OUs are auto created and managed with a script. A request has come to me from administration to assign users who abuse their privileges restricted internet access instead of removing their network access. The typical solution would be to create an OU for this and drop the users in this OU, but the automation script we have in place will set these users back in the correct OU nightly.

  6. allow blocking of entire top level domains.

    I find that many times the students are navigating to sites which should be blocked but are based on one of the new custom TLDs such as .click or .website . It would be simpler to have the option to default block many of them and then whitelist what we would like opened as opposed to blocking each of the new websites as they have just modified their domain names.

    Thanks for the request. You can currently add wildcards to your blacklist, such as * 123movies * (without the spaces, this forum converts the text to bold if I move them next to the word) which would block all the variations of 123movies – 123movies.com, 123movies.click, 123movies.co.au, 123movies.xyz, 123movies.io, etc. Is this what you are looking for?

  7. Ability to Delete Scenes

    As an ITRT, I demonstrate multiple times how to create scenes. So I have accumulated lots of scenes! As admins, we need to be able to delete our demo scenes. Teachers should be able to archive or delete scenes as well.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. Allow any Teacher to control student access when blocked by another Teacher's session because of scheduling changes.

    When our schedule changes, it is getting very frustrating when GoGuardian blocks the kids because their other teachers have restrictions. The teachers are being pretty good about taking down the restrictions but if they are not available then the kids are out of luck. Also there is a lag between when they tell it to turn off and when the kids can access again. Make a way that another teacher can turn off the session. For example if I have kids in my room that have teacher X, and his session started even though they are not in his class,…

  12. Activity reports need date/time stamp instead of always "Moments Ago"

    Activity reports need date/time stamp. Currently all say "Moments Ago" requiring you hover over the email header to determine the time that the event took place. This is a bit less problematic when forwarding the email to someone else because the date and time are clearly indicated included in the email header of the original message. BUT.. that info should be an integral part f the activity report itself.

  13. fix the YouTube filtering - students have easily figured out a way to watch whatever they want.

    Any YouTube video can be watched by doing the following:
    1 - Go to YouTube and click on a video that should be blocked
    2 - While the video is loading, click X to stop loading the page before GoGuardian logo appears in the corner of the video.
    3 - Click play button in the video and you can watch it.

    They can also watch the video by changing to full screen - student showed me today.

  14. Bypass

    In Bypass I would like to see the ability to select a single website to bypass. Like Pinterest for x amount of time. That way if a class is doing an assignment that needs a certain site that is not open normally it could be added to a bypass filter and not open up the entire blacklist

  15. Schedule usage reports to run automatically for certain users/OUs

    We have OUs setup for students that abuse their Internet usage, it would be nice if we could get usage reports for these students automatically emailed daily.

  18. Do not allow multiple accounts with the same email address.

    When importing from csv, we can import multiple accounts with difference case, like jdoe@domain.com and Jdoe@domain.com can be added in separate csv imports. We now have 50 duplicate accounts and no idea which one gets used when the user logs in... which seems like a bug more than a feature request.

  19. Is it possible to add a date field, for when the student is added to the penalty box?

    Is it possible to add a date field, for when the student is added to the penalty box? Also, is there any way to track how many times a student has been put in the penalty box?

  20. 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.
