Setting up Teacher Accounts

To set up teacher accounts, you must have “Super User” permissions in GoGuardian, which will allow you to access the Organization Management page:



To give your teachers access to GoGuardian for Teachers, you will need to add them as users in your Organization Management page. You can either add them one at a time, or add several at once: 

Adding One User

Adding Multiple Users

 


 

Adding One User


To add one user at a time:

  1. Go to http://manage.goguardian.com.

  2. Click on “Add User.” 





  3. In the window that appears, type in the teacher’s name and school email address.





  4. Under “Roles,” you can designate that user’s permissions. Most schools have their teachers’ settings set to GoGuardian for Admins: Disabled and GoGuardian for Teachers: Enabled. However, some schools choose to give teachers access to the GoGuardian for Admins dashboard as well. If you would like to allow a teacher to access the Admin dashboard, you can designate their permissions as Full Access (can view dashboard, edit whitelist/blacklist, change any setting; usually reserved for admins), Filter and Monitor (can view dashboard, edit whitelist/blacklist), Monitor Only (can view dashboard, but can’t make any changes—essentially, “read only”), or Disabled.

  5. By default, full Organizational Unit access is checked for new teachers. Because this setting only affects GoGuardian for Administrators and not GoGuardian for Teachers, you can leave these boxes checked:





  6. At the bottom of the window, hit “Add User.” The user will receive an email with a link prompting them to set up a password.

 




Adding Multiple Users


To add multiple users at a time:

  1. Go to http://manage.goguardian.com

  2. Click on "Add Multiple Users."





  3. In the window that appears, hit “choose file” and select a CSV file with the teachers’ names in one column and emails in a second column.







  4. Under “Roles,” designate their permissions. Most schools have their teachers’ settings set to GoGuardian for Admins: Disabled and GoGuardian for Teachers: Enabled. However, some schools choose to give teachers access to the GoGuardian for Admins dashboard as well. If you would like to allow a teacher to access the Admin dashboard, you can designate their permissions as Full Access (can view dashboard, edit whitelist/blacklist, change any setting; usually reserved for admins), Filter and Monitor (can view dashboard, edit whitelist/blacklist), Monitor Only (can view dashboard, but can’t make any changes—essentially, “read only”), or Disabled. Note: all users added in this fashion will be given the same permissions.

  5. By default, full Organizational Unit access is checked for new teachers. Because this setting only affects GoGuardian for Administrators and not GoGuardian for Teachers, you can leave these boxes checked:





  6. At the bottom of the window, hit “Add Users.” The users will receive an email with a link prompting them to set up a password.
