  1. OU Sync Options and Notifications - Very Important for IT!

    1.) Notifications on Success and Failure for the OU Sync between Google and GoGuardian

    2.) Allow Admins the ability to customize and schedule sync options, or at least have a few pre-defined time options to better meet the dynamic needs of end-users.

    Synchronization of users is absolutely vital. Due to an unknown error with the Google <-> GoGuardian OU sync process, we experienced several technical difficulties ranging from students appearing offline to not being applied correct filters. In the web user interface the users were showing up under "Unknown" Sub-OU. These were existing students that somehow were corrupted.

    • Theft Mode Redirect

      Hello,

      We would like to set the redirect URL on Chromebooks that are put into the Theft Recovery. If the device is in the Theft Recovery and the Chromebook is found and logged into, we would like to redirect their first search to our Lost/Found page.

      • Smart alert in Spanish

        I think it is important that Smart Alerts "understand" Spanish. At least for Self-harm.

        • Allow for Multiple Penalty Boxes to be Created

          As much as I like the penalty box, we need the ability to have something that isn't all or nothing. Right now, we have to put all students in the same penalty box. Because of this, whitelisted sites for high school are also whitelisted for middle school/elementary as there is just one penalty box. The ability to create multiple penalty boxes would be very helpful for a multitude of reasons (whitelisting by building level; allow for a very restricted box for those students who need it). Moving students in and out of different OUs just isn't practical and that isn't…

          • Principals’ Dashboard

            I’d love to put a tv on the wall in each principal’s office with a security cam-like view of student internet use in their building. This could be an live streaming app or a real-time webpage view of things such as:

            System status.
            Charting how much time the school spends online.
            Showing a “wordle” of the schools search terms throughout the day.
            Immediate and automatic attention to smart alerts in the building.
            Popular videos in the school. (With tools to take action).
            Unique activity by flagged students.

            • 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..... :(

              • Give me user display options for in class sessions

                I request the ability to select what is displayed for a student within a classroom session; such as Tim Smith, Smith, Tim or TSmith. Our student accounts in Google starts with "(Student)" before the student's name, so we only see "(Student) T." in GoGuardian classroom management.

                • schedule for bypass codes

                  I would like a calendar option when setting up the bypass codes. I have seen many times when i could give a teacher a code before hand maybe a few days out from the time they need it. If we had a calendar option we could put it in motion as soon as it is asked for and then not have to worry about it being used outside the time the teachers intended and that give us the ability to make sure that their class project or search data can be gathered and not upset the class flow. The access…

                    Add a comments or note section to Theft Recovery. This would allow users to provide details if the authorities have been contacted, report number, who is possession of the device and any other pertinent information.

                        • Not allow sessions to be applied to kids not on campus.

                          We have kids at school until 9pm doing work with staff and want the ability to have scenes and sessions. Therefore we need our school hours to go until 9pm.

                          We have teachers not end sessions with scenes and kids at home in the evening have been locked out of getting to legitimate websites.

                          When kids are home (not on our IP address) we don't see their screens but scenes are still being applies.

                          Please make it so we can't have scenes applied to students not on our IP.

                          • Add Suggested Exception Lists to the Penalty Box

                            The penalty box is a great way to let kids take a break and refocus on why they have a device at school. However, if I don't add the correct site/s to the whitelist I have now prevented said student/s from doing anything. The suggested Exception Lists that was added to GoGuardian Teacher would be a perfect fit in the Penalty Box area.

                            For example, unless I add all 21 of the suggested URL's for Google Docs there is potential that student cannot be successful in class and will now cause a distraction for not being able to "Do anything."

                            • Theft Recovery Reporting in 2.0

                              Please bring back the feature to export Theft Reports. Maybe you could do it the same way you do Smart Alert reports. This was in Theft Recovery 1.0, but for some reason was removed.

                              When I try to get a theft report to our local police department, it is very difficult to try to get them screenshots and tracking information when I have to pull each screenshot up individually and save each one.

                              • Create a live view in Admin for online students similar to what Teachers can see.

                                It would be great if Admins had the ability to view screenshots of student that are online just like in GoGuardian Teacher. We have the problem of students using a VPN on their phone and then connecting their Chromebooks to their phone. They can then access blocked sites on their Chromebook and it is not recorded anywhere in Admin or in our other content filter. Screenshots of the device (live view) should still show us what the students are doing even if it isn't getting recorded anywhere else. Then if we had to option to save screenshots or email them…

                                  • 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.

                                    • ScreenSharing

                                      Last year we used Lanschool. I used the feature screen sharing daily as a tool for my math class. This year I am unable, as you do not have this feature. Will you be implementing a screen share option anytime soon? I REALLY NEED IT!!!!!!

                                      PLEASE CONSIDER THIS OPTION! :)

                                      • location alerts for for certain OU's

                                        We would like the ability to receive an alert if a device from certain OU goes outside of a specified IP range or location. We have loaner Chromebooks that we would like to be alerted if they leave a building.

                                        • allow copying of whitelisted URLs from an existing policy to the Penalty Box.

                                          We had setup a Restricted Policy prior to GoGuardian 2.0 (which introduced the Penalty Box). I would like to start using the Penalty Box feature but don't want to add all the allowed URLs by hand. It would be nice to copy/paste or export/import all the URLs from a policy to the Penalty Box.
