Have a webpage that a student needs to access, but can't while your Block Mode Scene is applied?
Not to worry! It's now easier than ever to determine which site your student was attempting to access so you can add that URL to the site exceptions in your Block Mode Scene!
Setting a Scene to Block Mode will block all sites except what was explicitly allowed the site Exceptions. If you need to determine the site the student was blocked from and add it to your Scene, this can be done in three easy steps!
First, click the screen tile for the student that was blocked.
The site that was blocked will show as 'Website Blocked by Scene'. If you highlight and copy or right-click and copy the URL, you can add it to your Block Mode Scene and Update it.
a. Click the Scenes tab to navigate back to the Scenes page and select the Scene that is currently applied to make the change.
b. Paste the copied URL into the Allowed Sites box.
c. Click Add Site.
d. Click the Update Scene button (at the top-right of the page).
If you would like to enter this as a Wildcard, you can add an asterisk before and after the domain. Adding Wildcards will open up more parts of a site (ex. *google.com* will open up access to www.google.com and www.google.com/search).
For more information on WIldcards, you can click here to view our Wildcard article for GoGuardian Teacher Scenes.
After updating the Scene, students will be able to browse the newly allowed site immediately.
*If students continue to experience trouble with accessing the exact site that was added, please have them try performing a chrome restart on their device. This would be done by having the student type chrome://restart into the address bar and press enter.
