This setting will check if the web punch is coming from a lit of approved IP addresses or domain. You can also whitelist IP’s or domains where the Punch button should be visible from.

To whitelist an IP/Domain, ensure the second setting is enabled and click on the Add New button. 

Enter your IP/Domain and give a short description for future reference and click save.
