  1. Compatibility with android apps

    At the moment RADAR works for MAC, Windows and chromebook. However chromebooks are now capable of using android apps, as a result android apps in chromebook is not monitored by RADAR. It will be great if we have RADAR for android as well.

    • Standard Categories

      It would be great if under Categories, the "Standard Categories" are expanded by default and if they continue to be at the bottom of the list. It would make it a lot easier to add custom content to each via find, which I would imagine that Smoothwall would review and categorise such content in the back end.

      • 3cx Tunnel

        It would be beneficial for users using a 3CX Phone system to be able to prioritise traffic using the 3CX tunnel protocol rather than STUN/SIP.

        The 3CX tunnel protocol allows a single, encrypted tunnel between remote sites and a hosted PBX, allowing for easier configuration and more secured connections.

        • Show IP address / mac address and DNS name of station / location and record all of them in the log.

          If you only record the ip address, in a DHCP environment it's difficult track back and check where and /or what machine was used to browse a certain URL or violate policy.

          Please ensure that the smoothwall logs contain the DNS name / mac address picked up in realtime when the log is recorded.

          Thanks .

              • your export process does not offer a start AND end time option

                your export process does not offer a start AND end time option so how can we export the hours of logs we want to see ? your export options are lacking in usability.

                • Send now function by each scheduled report

                  For each scheduled report have a button to send now. This button will manually kick off the report and send to email group.

                  It would be good for testing scheduled reports

                  • I have tried on several occasions to move more than one url between categories.

                    It would appear you can only move 1 at a time which is crazy if you have 40 or more it is extremely long winded.

                    • Show plain text examples

                      When editing a guardian category (Guardian -> Categories -> Edit relevant block category -> Advanced) it would be nice to see plain English examples of how to add a each block search term. For example "Search term filtering" could show examples and the correct format to add the entries. Same with the other items on this page. Thanks.

                      • Quota disable access to streaming media

                        Yes given this note: 'Any content being streamed or downloaded by a user will not be stopped when the user’s quota runs out.' This should not be the case at all and there should be a way to make this note no longer valid, have the quota stop all streaming media or downloads when the timer has run itself out.

                        • slient quota

                          I was thinking why even have a notification for applying a time quota since even without clicking the button it still works?

                          • Search via phrase

                            You can search via the report - search terms, but can only select a day and only searches for 2 hour slot.

                            It would be nice to have a report that you can search for a phrase and select a week, month and show the results.

                                  • SNMP Location String

                                    It would be nice if you could allow updating/populating an location string for SNMP polling. Larger organizations like ours support and maintain content filters in multiple locations and also monitor those devices using network monitoring software. The ability to set an SNMP location string allows us to group by location in or monitoring platforms and better respond to site issues.

                                      • Option to select which nodes send a Safeguarding notification

                                        We have several child nodes which send their reporting data to the Parent
                                        node which handles reporting. This means that when I schedule Safeguarding notifications I get a full detail report from the parent along with empty reports from each of the child nodes.

                                        • Safeguarding Notifications exclude nodes

                                          We have a parent node and several child nodes. The parent node doesn't proxy (child nodes handle client proxying) and we report from the parent node. Problem is that if I schedule a weekly safeguarding notification report I get one report from the parent with the report detail and also an empty report from each of the child nodes. I'd like to be able to exclude child nodes from sending out the notifications so that I don't send out empty reports to School Safeguarding officers
