It is very important to set up 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’.
I WANT TO BLOCK BY IP ADDRESS
(easiest and most popular – best to have a static IP)
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.
I WANT TO BLOCK BY COOKIE
(best if you don’t have a static IP)
Originally, we restricted access of the punch in/out/meal/break buttons to an IP. For most businesses, this would work because they have a a static IP that never changes.
However, some business don’t have access to a static IP, so we’ve launched an enhancement to block access using cookies. To set this up, it’s a very simple process – just select METHOD 2 and click the SETUP button. That’s all you need to do. One note of caution – if you have your browser to clear cookies each day, you will need to turn this off otherwise you will loose the cookie that was added.
NOTE – Please make sure your cookie is saving properly on your machine. If the machine is under a guest account OR a thin client, it may not save correctly. Test by rebooting the machine and check if you still see the buttons. If you have an issue, read this article.
