Setting up Access Restrictions

Monday, August 1st, 2011

It is very important to setup access restrictions to avoid employees from punching in/out from home. Setting up access restrictions is very easy. From any computer within your businesses network, go to ‘Manage My Business’ and select ‘Access Restrictions’.

Your businesses IP will be shown in green and add a recognizable label in the edit field. This is telling our system that punch in/out is ONLY available from this IP. You can setup multiple locations too if you like, if you have multiple locations. Just follow the same process at each location.

Once you’ve clicked GO, you will see that you’ve registered your IP and you’re all set.
