Hi there welcome to the CurrentWare video tutorial series. In this video, we will teach you:
Let’s get started
Use the block list to block your employees from accessing distracting websites like Facebook and YouTube.
In this example we’re blocking Facebook and YouTube.com. Make sure you’ve selected the block list, highlight the websites on the left-hand side, click on the right arrow button in the middle, and move them on to the list
Your employees are now blocked from going to those two websites
On top of the block list we’re gonna further restrict internet access by using the category filter. Blocking categories is easy.
In this example, we’re blocking celebrity gossip, chats, gambling, magazines, movies download, porn, shopping, social networks, and sports.
That’s it! Your employees are now blocked from browsing distracting websites
Now we’re going to show you a stricter way of controlling internet access by using the allow list.
This is the best way to prevent your employees from browsing to any unauthorized website.
Let me introduce you to the internet scheduler. This feature will bring some flexibility to your internet restriction policies. It allows you to apply different restrictions during different times of the day.
There are four schedule types to choose from:
In this example, we will allow our employees to browse the internet during lunchtime, so we will select internet on. After you finish don’t forget to click on enable scheduler to activate the internet scheduler.
This brings us to the end of this video tutorial. For more information on CurrentWare feel free to contact us directly by email, phone, or visit our website. Thank you for your time
