  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Allow users to see why a site is blocked.

          When dealing with our students, often it can help future decision making to know why a particular site may be blocked. If a user knows that Twitter was blocked because it's social media, then they're less likely to simply give up because "everything's blocked anyway"

          Simply knowing the category or string that's blocked them increases visibility and puts some of the power back in their hands.

          • 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

            • A keystroke logger to see what students are typing. Good for preventing bullying, etc.

              This would be useful to see what students are typing in docs, etc, messages. would help prevent bullying etc.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                    under review  ·  cody responded

                    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?

                  • 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.

                      • 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.

                          • 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…

                            • Allow more granular control for administration

                              Allow much more granular permissions in GG manage. Allow a user to view the admin panel, view what's blocked, unblock something, set a bypass password, etc. Something like the attached picture, where each setting has a simple string, and each role you create can be given exactly which ability you want to give.

                              For an exact example, if I want to make a role called 'Page Editor', I could create a role with that name, and grant the permission 'Edit Pages', 'View private pages' and whatever else I want to give it.

                                • Please add the ability for an Admin to masquerade as teachers.

                                  As our districts Canvas(our LMS) admin I have the ability to go into a teachers or students accounts to trouble shoot issues. As we have become full student chromebook district. Teachers need a tool like go guardian, but from a Technology Department we need the ability to help fix or correct shortcomings in classes.

                                  • Allow Assigned Admins to login directly to Admin 2.0

                                    When an assigned admin for a Smart Alert receives the alert in their email, clicking on that email takes them to the classic Admin console. Allow them the ability to be taken directly to Admin 2.0 (and to Smart Alerts) so they can easily find the alert that is assigned to them and deal with it.

                                      The admin needs to be able to see why a page is blocked so they can properly unblock it. I had to use *spotify.com* instead of just spotify.com because when you get to the login page of spotify, it was still blocked. I had no way of knowing why it was being blocked when I had already whitelisted it.

                                        With Admin 2.0, the triggers are great. It would be even better if certain school administrators could have the permission to receive the notifications and take action without having access to the entire dashboard. They have access to that student in the notification but not all students in that OU.

                                        • 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.
