  1. Safeguarding reports to indicate if breach was blocked or not

    Incidentally a "this happened and we blocked it" vs a "this happened and we didn't block it" would be very handy

    • Show video names for YouTube videos

      Currently when you look at realtime search results you will not see video names for YouTube videos you just see the YouTube video ID which isn't much help. I would like to be able to see what video is being played and or searched for. We currently run YouTubeEdu which keeps out a lot of the videos we do not want, but some still get through. Being able to see which videos kids are searching for would help a lot.

      • Custom allowed content - allow us to record who has requested exception

        Staff request exceptions in custom allowed content. It would be nice to record this against the exceptions we add

        • Option in the report to include user Display name

          Username does not always make sense to the intended recipient of the user - display name would be good to include in the report

          • Be able to run Safeguarding reports for a specific date

            The Notification messages are generated each morning, which is great, but at weekends no one is available to Action the report of Friday's activity, the only options available are Last week or the Past 7 Days.

            A Date Specific option would be useful.

            • SWURL Logging

              Add a logging feature so that we can see who has added a URL to a SWURL group. Currently we are giving users their own list and rule, however we could consolidate these into a less rules if we are able to log changes within SWURL.

              • lets encrypt

                Allow use of https://letsencrypt.org with the reverse proxy, it is possible to do manually but since the certs expire every 90 days its a bit cumbersome.. they already have a client that does this on most unix os, it just needs integrated into the webui

                  • Quick block or allow

                    As a means of confirmation to the user it would be nice if once the entry has been allowed or blocked via the Quick Block or Allow page it would be nice to have the following notifications: - [URL] has been allowed - [URL] has been blocked -[URL] already exists in allowed/blocked list. Thank you

                    • When was an update installed?

                      I have automatic updates enabled. When I go to the updates page I see Glamis-1 has been installed automatically. But it does not say when - even when I click History.

                      • Page views

                        It would be useful if the reports could show "number of page views" for each category/domain in addition to hits and bandwidth as these figures can often be misleading in determining actual usage of a particular site.

                          • Need to be able to set different login timeout values for different groups or locations.

                            We simple need to be able to set different login timeout values for different groups of NTLM or Captive Portal identified users.

                            • We need to be able to set a timeout value that is NOT an idle timeout, but simply an overall timeout value.

                              Idle timeouts are great, and support has indicated that the user login timeout value is actually an idle timeout but I don't yet know if that's right, but we need to be able to decide for ourselves if we want it to be an idle timeout or simply an overall timeout from the time the user 1st authenticated.

                              • comments for exclusion entries

                                Under the guardian filtering exceptions there's currently no way, besides external documentation, to quickly see why a particular IP has been entered.

                                It would be nice if each entry could have a comment alongside it so that i can quickly see why that IP is there/what device is on the other end of it.

                                • Reporting again - reports don't tie up

                                  Its not an idea, just yet another request to get the reporting sorted out. There appears to be no correlation between the daily category e-mail that I get for Pornography, and any report that I can run to actually see who attempted an illegal access. The two just don't tie up, assuming that my measly attempts at trying to get a sensible report out of the console are correct?

                                    It would be really nice if you could make the red darker in the report web filter so it easily seen.

                                    • Web filter logs unusable

                                      In the days of old it was easy to find specific information in the Web filter logs, if not you export it. Today it is near impossible. For instance im looking for someone using livechatinc.com but it would require me to move the time forward or backward in tiny points. This is impracticable. Computers today are fast enough to display all the data. This screen should act more like a search tool. Type in a machine, IP or user and get the whole day for that user. Type in a domain name and get all the hits. Please fix it.

                                      • HTTPS Softblock?

                                        For example, the MITM get no valid certificate from a webserver, therefor you got the block page and you cannot continue...

                                        We like to have an option like the softblock feature...something like: I know it is not safe but continue...

                                        • Show host name instead of IP address on traffic graphs

                                          The real time traffic graphs show IP addresses and current bandwidth usage, it would be awesome if the IP addresses could be translated to hostnames (maybe via nslookup) as it would save us time having to do this translation ourselves.
