Instant Notification

Is there any capability (or plan) to allow for instant notification when a threshold has been met? I find that, by the time I receive the report the next day, perhaps the damage has already been done. If there was instant notification (even by email) when a "Mature" site had been visited, there is a chance of instant intervention.

Thanks for sharing!

Ideas like this have bounced around here before, and generally we think it has the potential to be really awesome. (Has to be done well though, nobody wants to be spammed with false positives)

If you were designing this what would it look like? What would you want to see in the alert, and how often would they come? 

We have a really creative community here on Get Sat, I would love to see this topic talked through

I think this is a wonderful idea. I believe that the instant notification should be sent via text message (on cell phones) to the accountability partner. Not everyone will be online at the same time, and sometimes it does take a while for email to be read. Text messages have a better chance of being seen right away.

There should be 2 types of alerts to the accountability partner: (1) when the person has entered the site. [The message might read like: *user name* has entered a entered a website with the rating **; website address]; and (2) an alert text every 10? minutes informing the partner if the website has not been left.

For the person who might be on the website: a full-screen popup that warns of content before the site is entered(if filtering is not available) OR a full screen popup stating they have been on an inappropriate website for ** amount of minutes.

I agree - I would love to see SMS notifications, if possible. And, depending on how customizable it can be, perhaps just start with notifications for sites with a rating of M or HM - there is little chance that those will result in truly false positives.

SafeEyes offers this and it is very nice. One of the reasons I prefer them over CE
