A couple of reasons a Bark Super Admin may wish to review a granular web browsing report for a student or group may be due to troubleshooting an unexpected block, ensuring new filter rules are acting as expected, or maintenance (by seeing the top blocked sites accessed by students).

With the Chrome Web Filter, the super admin of Bark for Schools can view the web browsing for a particular organizational unit or user by doing the following:

STEP 1: Click on Web filters in your Bark dashboard drop-down menu.

 

STEP 2: Scroll down to the Filter section and select the Chrome filter.

 

STEP 3: Scroll down and select the Group. You can also use the search bar to search for a group.

Here you will see a report for the whole organizational unit from the web filtering extension

 

STEP 4: Scroll down and select the Student. You can also use the search bar to find a student by first and/or last name.

STEP 5: Here you will see a student-specific web browsing report from the web filtering extension

This points out the category of browsed domains, whether they were allowed or blocked, and the date/time of the browsed activity. This part is immensely helpful for troubleshooting an unexpectedly blocked site.
Furthermore, you can click into the top blocked or top allowed domains to see what other students browsed that site:

For example, if I click bark.us under the Allowed section, I would see this log that shows these 3 students recently visited that site:
