Summary

IP Access Page

IP access policies allow you to control employee access to the XactTime site by restricting
the IP addresses from which they can connect to the site. You can use this for preventing
employees from clocking in from unauthorized locations such as home.
The IP access policy indicates the IP address or addresses that are allowed access to the
site. You may specify a particular IP address or a range of addresses. We recommend that
you enlist the help of your technology department in obtaining the correct IP address for your
employees.
By default, XactTime grants employees unlimited access to the site. Assigning an employee
to an IP access policy limits the employee to access from the policy-specified addresses
only.
