Increase Integrity and Security with IP Restriction
If you want a reliable system where you can prevent time theft, then your wait is over. Now, you can get more secure IP restriction feature with WP ERP Attendance extension.
Now, you may ask- ‘What is IP Restriction?‘
This feature allows you to white-list IP addresses from which your employees will be able to check-in or check-out. This also ensures security and productivity as your employees have to check-in from the IP addresses that you have white-listed.
Why Would You Require IP Restriction
Self attendance allows your employees to check-in and check-out by themselves from their devices. It is useful when there is no bio-metric or attendance machine. But the truth is- some employee may take the advantage of this feature. Yes, you heard it right!
Your employees may check-in from their own devices even they are outside of the workplace. Similar case may occur in case of check-out. People may left workplace before their shift and just click on the check-out button from a remote place. This is known as time theft.
You prevent these scenario's and increase the integrity of your employee attendance using the IP restriction feature. You can list white-listed IP addresses of your workplace. By this way, your employees have to check-in or check-out from these IP's only. Otherwise, they won't be able to perform self attendance.
How to Setup IP Restriction
If you are already using the Attendance extension, just navigate to Attendance settings and enable this feature. There is a field where you can input all the IP addresses to restrict your employees to check-in or check-out from outside their respective workplace.
