By default, staff members are able to clock-in from anywhere that has an Internet connection, and this includes work, home, or their mobile Internet on a cell phone. In some circumstances, this is the correct and desired set up. However, for many businesses in the retail and foodservice industries, it is not desirable to provide staff with these abilities.
To support these businesses, TimeForge includes the ability to restrict clock-in and clock-out functionality to specific IP addresses, or physical locations.
Navigate to the Attendance Options
Navigate to the Attendance Options in the Attendance tab.
Add IP Addresses
You can specify one or more IP addresses which employees must be at, for employees to clock in. To add an IP address for employees to clock in:
- You can type your IP address into the text box. If there is more than one allowed IP address, they should be separated by a space, comma, or on separate lines.
- Instead of typing in the IP address, you can click on the Add this computer to allowed IPs button, and TimeForge will add your current IP address to the list of allowed IP addresses.
Remember to click Save Company Settings.
