Data Permissions

Data Permissions

IP Restrictions

Under Allowed IPs, you can add IP restrictions. Zoho People supports IP restrictions to be done for Attendance, Files, and Time Tracker.

  • From Home, go to Setup   (gear icon)> User Access Control > Allowed IPs > Add IP Restriction
  • Enter the IP range under From and To

  • Under Module, select Attendance
  • Under Applicable for select users based on roles, departments, designations, locations, users
  • Click Save

Your employees will not be able to access the system beyond this range.

When Configuring IP restrictions, we always recommend using  Static IP Addresses as the Dynamic IP Address gets refreshed in every 72 hours. Hence please check with your ISP to get a Static Public IP address to implement the same in Zoho People. Please do let us know at for any further assistance.
