Web Filter Categories

The setting for allowed and blocked website categories is made group-specific. The categories are separated in root and subcategories. For example, the category Internet contains the subcategory Chat. For each category, you can set it to be Allowed, Disabled or allowed during Break times.

After the activation of the Web Filter, all categories are disabled. As a basis for your group settings, you can set rules for the group “Default”. This group applies to all users if you have not set further rules yet.

Click on Default to select a group setting.

Furthermore, you can define which categories can be temporarily unlocked by a group leader after a release request. If a category is blocked, the lock turns green. If you click on the green lock, it turns red and is blocked for temporary releases by the group leader.
